The Cobra Retires – Greatest British Super Middleweight?

View image |

Just how good was Froch?

At his best he was very good, his record shows some top names, and one thing I will always give Froch credit for is he did not duck anyone, he agreed to take part in the super six tournament when they looked to unify the WBA and WBC world titles, fighting Dirrell, Kessler, Abraham and Johnson, eventually losing in the final of the tournament to Ward.

Froch as a boxer, was brave, with quick hands and could take a shot, only knocked down twice in his entire career.  If I had to pick 2 of his best performances out of a list of many great fights, I would say his performances against Kessler in the first fight and his fight against Jermain Taylor, when behind on all scorecards going into the last round, he stopped Taylor with only 14 seconds left in the round.

Carl Froch was an outstanding fighter, who gave boxing fans some great moments, and was never afraid to go into the lions den to fight, fought Kessler in his home country and did the same with Ward and Taylor, I wish him well in his new career.  Greatest ever British Super Middleweight?  See below.
