CARL FROCH DESTROYS Lucian Bute; heads into p4p top-10
By James Slater - What a night British warrior and now three-time world super middleweight king Carl Froch gave fans last night in his home town! This writer, who had the Joy of sitting at ringside as "The Cobra" took the talented Lucia Bute apart, is still trying to take in the best British win in many a year. Indeed, Froch's superb win - and there really is no other word for it - has to rank right up there with Nigel Benn's tragic win over Gerald McClellan, Barry Mcguigan's win over Esubio Pedrosa and Ricky Hatton's humbling of the great Kostya Tszyu - and all the other legendary British wins we've seen over the years.
Froch, in the opinion of many experts, was in over his head last night, instead he rocked the boxing world and put himself firmly in anyone's top 10 pound for pound.
That said, here is my brand new P4P TOP TEN:
1 Floyd Mayweather (face it, he's never gonna lose!)
2 Manny Pacquiao
3 Sergio Martinez
4 Nonito Donaire
5 Juan Manuel Marquez
6 Andre Ward
7 Wladimir Klitschko
8 Carl Froch
9 Tim Bradley
10 Chad Dawson.
how great can "The Cobra" become? After last night's sensation, the sky truly is the limit!
