Very nicely written. Sadly barbarism explains the 80,000 crowd and the bandwagon fans but for the purists there is the added draw of an appreciation for the athleticism and skills of top level boxers. For all his technical flaws, even Froch is a sublimely skilful boxer and you have to be to box at world level.

@ John Wight : great write up.

@ 76 olympic team : shut up you moron, this article is infinitely better than the sad mixture of blogger diatribes/press releases/articles about Mayweather’s latest bowel movement/etc that usually clutter ESB.

The Bummer

Froch?! He’s just a bum! Just like Muhammed Ali. That bum only got rated so highly because he beat that bum Foreman. And that bum Liston. And all those other bums.

I hope after this fight that a lot of the so called BOXING FANS, who claim to have all kinds of knowledge, will at last accept Froch for what he is, a dedicated professional fighter, he asks no favors, nor does he give any. He goes into the ring and gives his best, which, up until now has been excellent, the two losses he has, are against top, top class opposition, and nobody is unbeatable, as for Groves, he was his own worst enemy, he thought he would stomp his way into the ring and flatten Froch, that Froch was somehow intimidated by him, well I guess he got that wrong. Did he really think,that a fighter of Froch’s class and background was really scared of him? if he did he should sit back and look at his build up to the fight, he was more interested in insulting Froch than getting himself mentally prepared, I think he was the one with the fear factor. I honestly believe if they fought 10 times, Froch would beat him 10 times, why? Froch can take a punch, and Groves at this point, has a stamina issue, also I think Groves got NO good advice in the corner, good luck to him but he should definitely look at the team around him, or he can say goodbye to any future world title hopes.

Although I thought Groves would pull it out I was a little off. I boldly predicted a nasty stoppage by Froch after my original analysis of Groves pulling off the win. I am the greatest fight PROPHET ever born.

Joe Frazier.., “Boxing is the only sport where you can get your brain shook, your money took, and your name in the undertaker book.”

How about Horse Racing? There’s more gambling on horses than on boxers, and more fortunes lost. It’s more dangerous too. More jockeys die than boxers—and quite a few have plates in their head.

Willie Pep.., “What happened to my money? … Fast women and slow horses.”
