Hidalgo: Everything can happen in Froch vs Kessler 2, I just hope, you don’t base your opinion of Froch, on his last two fights, and I urge you to watch Kessler vs Green again, on Youtube. When you assume that no one can take Kessler out, without headbutting, do you still see Froch outpointing Kessler over 12 rounds? Funny, I can see Froch Koing Ward, but Kessler, is another beast.

I think the best of Ward will beat the best of Froch every time wherever the fight is held, but one thing about Froch at the moment – he`s looking a smoother beast, and no matter who you are, fightiing him (even moreso in his own hometown)s a valid test. If Ward dropped his standards even a little, Froch would be right there throwing 3-4 bombs at a time to take advantage, so even if they do fight again, and Ward controls it again and smartly outscores him you will know that you are watching Ward performing to the peak of his powers.

Can’t agree that Bellew looked impressive,anything but actually. He was fighting a not particularly good fighter who had a good chin,but in the first few rounds he missed with more punches than he connected, his round house swings were very amateurish.He tried his hardest to knock him out and when he couldn’t he resorted to fouling……I’m not talking about the blatant low blow, a few times he followed through with his elbow…

MK, if Froch/Kessler 2 happens, and if it happens in England, Froch will TKO Kessler.

Look Froch vs Kessler 2 will happen. Kesslers last fights are as said before: Magee, Ward and Froch. The order of the fights, as we know, can be changed. I am pretty sure that Bute vs Froch will happen too, there is a contract. Froch is 50% better in Nottingham than away from home. Hearns said that Froch will meet Bute, Kessler and Ward in 2013.

Froch is a very good, tough fighter but Mack has taken stoppage losses to Cloud and OLD Glen Johnson he is in no way a proxy for Froch being able to handle Ward, one thing I noted is that Froch’s confidence was GONE after facing Ward and he talked retirement in spite of a good overall record and some very good albeit at times close victories (Direll, Kessler) He gets in that ring again with Ward he will be right back at square one… He needs to focus on chopping up Bute again then see how he feels.

By the way -I can’t believe how bad Mack was, did I mention this:)

Posted November 18, 2012 7:18 am

Look Froch vs Mack gives a lot of confidence for Froch and his fans, he is clearly the second best Smw fighter after Kessler. But the fight means absolutely nothing, due to Macks clownish behaviour, it was humiliating for Mack. Froch is the same oldtime professional price fighter. Froch has not received super human abilities of late, but I will say that there is no way that Ward would stand in the last round against Froch, in Nottingham. Mack was the wrong opponent for Froch, a second Magee fight would have shown his skills better, but this was not possible.

Andre Ward, Froch will not beat. Should he test himself with Ward again (I wouldn’t recommend it) I think his self esteem would take a huge hit, as would his record after that. To go further, he may also want to steer clear of anyone with the last name Kessler or Dirrell. Kessler is just a better fighter and Dirrell beat him when they fought (in England) IMO. “Home cookin’” could have been the factor? At any rate, Dirrell is younger, faster, more accurate and athletic.

I don’t care if Ward has fans or not, his style is Froch’s kryptonite. Ward should fight Froch in Manchester.

Actually Ward can´t draw fans anywhere outside of California so he´s far from the main man. If this guy is the supposed p4p future how come we don´t get to see him in Vegas? How come the Bute fight that was the unofficial super six prize went to Froch instead? How Ward manages to be undefeated and still have absolutely nobody care about him is amazing. Ask any non-boxing fan to name a currently active 168 pounder and I guarantee you they won´t name Ward.

Posted November 17, 2012 11:02 pm 


Puglife

If Froch’s people put up enough money, more than he might make on HBO for instance, Ward would probably take it. He won the first fight; it’s up to Froch to make it worth Ward’s while for a rematch. He’s kept winning and that’s part of it. But only the almighty dollar will move Andre ‘Son of God’ Ward across the Atlantic.

Froch and Bute are jokes compared to Andre Ward and telling Ward to going to Nottingham to fight Froch is like telling Foyd Mayweather Jr. to going to Sheffield to fight Kell Brook!, PURE JOKE !!! Ward/Froch 2; Ward by KO, Dirrell/Froch 2; Dirrell by TKO

Hagler was the top fighter from 1980 in the UK,it was like Ali going to Holmes,whose Holmes,eventually everyones talking about Hagler after the Minter fight, the rest is history,a few fights,then the Hearns fight, History lesson there.

Ward is a good fighter, beat Dawson, won the super six, but he needs to travel to fight, Kessler, Froch, before he get’s full respect from Boxing, he needs to fight the top fighters away from home, no excuse to not have a fight in Europe,Denmark,UK,Germany, instead of no, I will stay at home, I am Andre Ward and I will have all the advantage.

Ward wouldn’t travel and to be honest doesn’t need to. He’s the main man. Unless Ward craves for red leather there’s no point in him going considering he schooled Froch the last time.

Smitti… Anyone thats watched Froch through the British n Euro days will tell you that the way Froch has fought in his last 2 fights is exactly the way he fought then on the way through. Now a lot of guys wont notice any differance in his style bit beleive me this is the old Carl Froch were seeing resurface. He’s way more gung ho, waiits n stalks then fights flat out. Its where the nickname came from. He just fights at his pace n picks his spots, a brilliant way to save energy by fighting when it suits you. Hardest thing in Boxing is to fight at somone elses pace

Smitti.. The way Froch has fought his last 2 fights is exactly how he fought on the way through, somewhere along the line he got away from his natural style, witch is the way he’s fought his last 2. Now some guys will say what change? well if you’d seen him through the British n Euro days you’d know what i’m saying. Also i’d urge folks to watch the last 2 rounds v Ward, then tell me he’s got no chance

I agree with Jim Watts comment tonight. Froch became a better fighter for being part of the Super 6 tournament. He’s really improved over the last few years into a tough veteran. I dont think there is much point in the rematch with Bute. He seemed so overmatched and engulfed by Froch and didnt cause even the slightest dent in Frochs armour. I dont think he would beat Ward in rematch though. He has that awkward style that puts fighters like Froch totally out their rhythm and he scores with a lot of crisp punches aswell.

Not true! Hagler went to the UK and stopped Minter for the Championship and got blasted with bottles for beating their hero. Winky Wright and Steve Cunningham were making their bones all over the world and a good portion in Europe. Fact is if they can fill Nottingham Forrest Stadium for the Ward-Froch fight then $ is good and the fight will be made.

For thoses of you that have’nt followed Froch from the start of his pro carrer,( the last 2 fights) this is exactly the way he used to fight. Pick his spots and fight flat out. Also for anyone saying he fights no marks you really need to find another sport because there is’nt another fighter over the last 50 years thats fought consistantly at the level he has. Call him what yoy want, but dont accuse him of taking the easy options. You make yourself look a total fight game novice in doing so

Froch can now beat Ward, he won’t mess about now, Ward has not fought away and the Dawson fight was a good win, but Dawson was weak at 168, lot’s of questions about Ward, not including rough tatics that he will not be able to do fighting away, also does he travel well.

Hahaha… See what happens when American fighters use their passports and have to fight under the same adverse conditions everyone else does when they travel? Froch is a completely different animal when fighting at home. Completely different. He’s much looser and relaxed and it makes a HUGE difference to his punching form. The fact that he’s finally listening to what McCracken has been trying to drum into his thick skull for years about not loading up on his punches as well makes him a much more dangerous and more difficult to read than the slow as molasses nervous one that loaded up on everything we saw struggle for first three quarters of the fight against Taylor and the one who laboured against that ugly bisexual pampered b@stard ‘Sucks off God’ Ward. I like the way he follows up with both hands now after leading even if he missed with the first shot. Unlike in the past, he’s not throwing everything with full power now and his opponents are finding it much more difficult to get out of the way of his second wave of attack. Bute and Mack often slipped the first couple of shots but he was able to catch them with the follow up ones because he just kept throwing and it really took all their confidence away very quickly and made them very wary and reluctant about leading.

If Froch wants he can make money fighting no marks like Mack. On the other hand Ward would struggle to get2000 of his own fans to show up for a fight against a no mark. I actually think Ward needs to travel to England or Denmark if he wants to make some money and give the fans the only fights they want to see him in. If he does not travel to either I don’t want to know wit he does in his career

Congrats to Froch on his win, but lets keep this in perspective. Mack was a good espn fighter nothing more. Everytime he stepped up he loses.
