Carl Froch – The best Super Middleweight in the world
By Liam Santiago: Since Joe Calzaghe hung up his gloves the super middleweight division is searching for its new top star and at the end of the Super Six tournament it will have one. Personally, I can’t see anyone touching the Cobra, Carl Froch. Froch is the type of fighter that keeps this sport alive; willing to fight anyone, anywhere and giving absolutely everything in the ring.
Kessler also has to be considered. But what has he done since losing to Calzaghe? He has accomplished two wins since over Dimitri Sartison and Danilo Haussler. He hasn’t exactly been lined up against the cream of the division.
Carl Froch displays the heart of a lion every time he laces up a pair of gloves. A fighter with that sort of mentality is incredibly difficult to beat. However, he is not just driven by a fierce desire to win. He has incredible power, as Jermaine Taylor found out recently, he also has a granite chin. As we know Froch entered into the Super Six tournament because of the tough competition. This is what boxing needs. A fighter that doesn’t ‘duck’ people. He gives fans what they want and as an added extra to his arsenal, he is great to watch.
Froch is my personal favourite to win the Super Six tournament and who knows, doing that might even drag Calzaghe out of retirement. Every British boxing fan wants to see that fight but for it to stand the slightest chance of happening, Froch needs to be top form in the tournament. Calzaghe vs Froch would be tough. I couldn’t pick a winner prior to the bout.
Froch has the power, the chin and the heart to whether anything Calzaghe has. Yet, Calzaghe has the speed and the slick movement to outwork Froch. Calzaghe would be a big favourite, but I simply believe Froch would take everything Calzaghe has to offer and come back with twice as much.
