Hopkins and Froch

SecondsOut Boxing News - Main Features - Hopkins and Froch ? Born Gladiators

A good little article on two of my favourite fighters over the last decade. These two have consistently taken on the best in back to back fights. A few other fights could definitely take a page out of their book.

B-Hoop still showing these kids how it's done. A legend. One of the greatest of all time I don't care what anybody says about him.

Froch one of the great British fighters. Sh1tting all over Calzaghe's resume.

Two warriors. More people could learn from them.

Well said, as much as I disliked Froch in the past...the way he took fights against the best has made me love this guy. He's not the best boxer in the world, nor does he have the best skill, but the man is fearless and wins off of pure heart and grit. That's more than what I can say about Calzaghe. Just what Froch has done in the S6 alone dumps on what Calzaghe has done in his entire career. And now he's lined up to take on Bute...so he's basically fought the top 5 best fighters at 168 MOST OF THEM IN THEIR PRIMES. Yeah hes's lost to some, but hey I would rather watch my fighter fight the best and lose than squirrel around the best and fight backyard bums.

I saw perfect analogy on boxingscene in comparing Froch to Calzaghe...Froch is like an NBA vet, a man that has been in the big leagues for years...he's lost some and he's won some. Calzaghe is like baller who played in Turkey against subpar competition, won countless championships and then played two games in the NBA and retired Anyone can be undefeated against Calzaghe's competition...Froch would still be undefeated had he not stepped foot in the S6...but he wanted to be the best...and to be the best you first have to ball in the big leagues

Two of my top 5 favorite fighters. Would be cool if they fought in the UK at LHW before Hopkins finally retires.
