Why go to the UK to get robbed? Why don’t they both go to a location where there is no advantage for either fighter?

Froch can fill an arena full if Brits who will be their swilling beer and cheering till the cold reality of Ward busting up his face takes hold and they go silent praying thee man can finish let alone legitimately win the bout… The Ward that faced Dawson stops Carl Froch and hopefully he (Ward) shows the arrogance in victory AGAIN that Froch chooses to show in defeat… Reminds me of Guerreros dad who wanted to celebrate his son being horribly outclassed…

If your fighting in your home country it dosent matter where New York..Houston..L.A…Miami..Detriot..its still your home if the guy your fighting is from outside the country.If Froch fights in England anywhere in England against Ward hes still fighting home…silly writer.

There’s nothing not to like in Froch, he may not be the most talented boxer but thru sheer guts and determination he finds a way to get that win. I am totally against the notion that just because your talent is way better than your closest rivals you get penalised for it. Yes, you are as good as your competition but some athletes or sportsmen are just that much better Ward and Mayweather are facing that scenario. A guy spanks 12 – 0, hell it don’t matter where you fighting you got f up case closed maybe if it was a split decision you may have a case but please don’t waist our time when the guy has been outclassed.Some fans are fanatics and will come up with all sorts of nonsense than accept reality. In many sport you get those individuals whose skills far exceed their rivals that it kills competition eg : Michael Jordaan, Usain Bolt, Michael Schumacher, Valentino Rossi, etc, these individual are simply more skilled and should just be given their due respect instead of trying to diminish their achievements through jealousy, discrimination n all other bs we fans suffer from.

Ward beats Froch in a shoebox, phone box, football pitch, side of a road ditch, you guys give me a stich, with all this talk but Froch cant walk the walk when it comes to stalk, jab and hit, the brit will be outclassed by the master class, so dont get bored when Froch is clipped by Andre Ward…

Will this be the first time Ward is in a crowd of over 3000 ? I know it’s difficult to sell tickets in Oakland with about all of Ward fans are on EBT welfare recipients or crack dealers

Ward will spank Froch if they ever meet again. And Dirrell did win the fight against loud-mouthed Froch.

I actually give Froch a lot of credit for getting wins based more on toughness, conditioning and will than actual talent or skill… He’s done a lot in his career BUT these attempts to knock the TRUE SMW Champion are bogus… Carl Froch has TOUGH close fights with the best guys he’s in with resulting in 2 losses, a debatable win against Dirrell and a hail Mary victory against Jermaine Taylor who we all know was a disaster at 168 pounds… Ward comes in an dominates his opponents then he’s asked to do its again under some new circumstance to prove the first times real…Froch can call Ward “boring” or whatever but he CANNOT beat him, effectively land, nor avoid Wards punches… The gap in skill is evident to the naked eye, guys always get agitated with smooth boxers like Floyd and Ward because they produce lopsided, non dramatic victories… Kesslers a very good fighter but his stiff transitions force him to slug, to his detriment…Ward sees those wild shots from a mile away and that’s why he’s gone or giving the relatively slow Froch an angle then tagging him.. Carl’s stated preference for sluggers is NOT for the fans it’s because boxers are befuddling…Unfortunately Froch has nowhere to go but Ward lest he have another rematch with Kessler, the fight was good but not that good but Kessler sure as hell did NOT get blown out….

adrien broner?? what the heck has he ever done? A fake Mayweather at best. He’s an idiot and an embrrassment to the US.

Ward is a chicken! Froch has already fought him in the USA and Ward doesn’t have the class or the courage to fight him the UK. Typical of all Yank boxers. Cowards! Only brave in their own country.

Nice one last night Froch great fight,but I’m afraid if you fought ward in your front room he would beat you just as easy as he did last time,every time,last night showed Carl is a teak tough SOB,but only looks good against some one who stands with him,his lazy jab and low left hand would be would be exposed by ward or Hopkins for that matter.Also if ward is there for the beating Carl has to go and get him,don’t think for one second ward would be afraid to take on Froch,Froch is doing the talking so he’ll have to do the walking.

Froch is a true warrior, but Ward’s technique and tactics are a class above anything the Cobra has to offer. He’d get schooled and would have to rely on hometown judging.

Woosy Ward hasnt got the balls to come to the Cobras county, forget it Carl.

Time for the Ward

Fork handles, Handles for forks, I have just had about enough of this.

Time for the Ward

It is not in Froch and Kesslers Boxing to cheat or spoil, they just automatically fight, they are fighters, Boxers, they just will not cheat people.

Posted May 26, 2013 2:16 am 


Time for the Ward

Let’s hope Ward doesn’t do his grab and hold tactics, Froch v Kessler, they just fought, no grabbing, just fought, like fighters.

Kessler is a really bad boxer… Froch looks like a maestro in comparison, and Carl is one of the most awkward movers and swingers I’ve ever seen at this level of the sport … Who gets away with starting a running uppercut or loaded right hander from 6 feet away—except against Kessler??? And one time Froch spun himself completely around when he missed a wild punch.. Nothing Kessler could do.. If one of Wladimir’s opponents fought like that you’d never hear the end of it … Heavyweights are supposed to be awkward, slow, clumsy, and wild compared to middleweights.

Froch isn’t calling the shots…Ward is. This 3rd rate bar room brawler, slow of foot and hand, won’t stand the slightest chance against his countryman, George Groves. Groves can box, escape the caveman’s wide, loping punches, and counter all night. I see Groves winning a fight against Karl …”I’m gonna kill this FK’er’ “Froch. Pathetic.

Aside…What happened to Kessie? He seemed psyched out the day he went for a walk down by the river the day before the epic battle. I think he should retire. I like the guy but IMHO he folds in the clutch. Just my two cents.

Dirrell definately got robbed. Movement or not he landed more punches and cleaner punches. Froch know the only way he can beat Ward is with those same judges.

The day Froch beats Ward is the day Chick Fila opens on Sunday.

I like Froch as a fighter, his heart and determination i admire, but he punches too wide and slow for masterful fighters like B hop or Ward, ya dig

Jesus are some of you guys blind??? Froch simply cannot box compared to Ward… His crude easily predicted movements will be easily spotted by the better athlete and technician..

After the scoring tonight??? All 3 judges should have had it 118-110… These were international judges… Even Andre Ward agreed with the scoring of the HBO team as it went along, reflecting that Froch put the fight away by the 9th round… Two of the judges tried t keep Kessler in the fight beyond where he was really in it… Ward has nothing to fear from international judges who won’t be drawn from either England or the US — they’ll do a much more accurate job than the bums in Las Vegas who were trying to give the fight to Froch… Froch was stunned by the closeness of the score because he knew he lost by a mile … Ward will get a better deal in England.

50 year old Hopkins will beat Froch, Ward wipes him out easy! He does not even really wanna fight and discussed Wards lack of a brawling style (pure boxer) something we know the Cobra cannot handle…That hot piece of patch he has sees him lose to SOG again she might pack up… Froch is an easy nights work for a healthy Ward…

Why. Froch ain’t the champ.

Posted May 25, 2013 11:56 pm 


SREDMOND

Carl Froch does NOT really wanna fight Ward I saw that postfight interview and he hemmed and hawed and discussed he used tapes of Ward to find a formula to beat Kessler, he discussed how basically he did not like matching up with a guy who “would not brawl” in essence Carl Froch wants a guy who will trade and give his relatively crude style the opportunity it needs… His beating Kessler and the manner he did it only show he’s HOPELESS in the ring with Ward… Guys like Mayweather and Ward LOVE these free swinging brawlers who make countering that much easier… Froch has done a lot with a skillset that’s nothing special but Ward is his nightmare all day everyday and the increasingly meaner Ward who stopped Dawson would not let Froch finish… Stiff legged, strong but unathletic Kessler is a poor Proxy for what SOG brings…Carl didn’t get nicked by Ward he was dominated as was Kessler of he wants it, tell him to fly himself and that piece of hot ass to the Kings Kingdom and take his last beating…

Hell man he just got cleared from the doctor after shoulder surgery. I believe he will fight Froch again, but you forgot about Ward traveling to Froch’s home town for it.

Ward is the next b hop he will be around for sometime . Froch a great boxer wish him the best but he ‘s got to fight ward agian if he lose so what just bring your best.

Froch could fight Ward 7 times and he would lose 7 times. He refuses to stick tio the game plan of his corner and remain discipled!!

Posted May 25, 2013 11:02 pm

That wasn’t a joke, seriously, Ward should fight away.

Right know i think Kessler is doing what he needs to do in the last three rounds

Posted May 25, 2013 10:55 pm

He did but Dirrell also moved too much which gave the indication that he was running

Posted May 25, 2013 10:46 pm

Froch fought Ward in New Jersey I think so it was not home field advantage for Ward. If Froch wants the Championship the he needs to fight where Ward wants to fight.

Posted May 25, 2013 10:45 pm 


Honestly

I personally think Dirrell got robbed against Froch also overseas.

Posted May 25, 2013 10:44 pm 


Popkins

The Guardian journalist scored it 115/115 ….that’s a far more realistic representation of the fight. 118/110??!! …sounds like only a KO would have won Kessler the fight tonight. Ward should stay in California.
