I wish we could see this fight. I swear we don't get very many British fights and it drives me crazy. At least I get Haye-Mormeck. I'm interested to see what all the Haye hype is about.

Theres decent action every friday night over here, just domestic clashes and stuff. Froch is a fighter that could very well be a world champion, but the guy needs to shut his big mouth and start fighting some live guys:laugh:

Ermm not free but very cheap. It was about $10 for the month subscription of the channel, which includes Calzaghe-Kessler, Cotto-Mosley, Vargas-Mayorga and a few soccer matches. A very good offer:thumbsup:

He hasnt fought at high level, but hes fought very well so far. Im not sold on him yet, but boy can he punch.. he has a puncher's chance against any SMW in the world. The recent the odds are so in favour of Froch is because he is in his prime, while Reid's prime finished about 2-3 years ago.. the guy should have retired after Lacy demolished him.

im yet to be convinced by Froch, he talks the talk, but i don't think he has the power or skill to be a major force at 168, Kessler would beat him easy, so would Pavlik if he moved up, he just hasn't got the class to be a major threat in the division

saying this, he'l beat Reid, and maybe get a better opponent next time, let's see who's it going to be

Reid's corner retire him after 5 probably a wise choice IMO. Froch still has impressed me much, he hits very hard and throws good quick combinations but for me he just carries his left hand too low and hasnt got the reflexes to get away with it. Reid caught him with 3 solid right hands in the 4th, he was clearly hurt at one point. Reid isnt very fast either, he'll be in trouble against a world class operator such as Kessler.
