Carl Froch Vs Andre Dirrell

Carl Froch Vs Andre Dirrell

This much awaited fight is almost with us. Carl Froch Vs Andre Dirrell is quite an unpredictable fight to predict. Carl Froch is strong, good power puncher, and can take a good shot. On the other hand, he is pretty slow and sluggish with his footwork and movement, something that slick  boxer Andre Dirrell thinks he can capitalize on. And so do i, at least for the first 6 rounds. But when Dirrell slows down i think Carl Froch will most probably knock him out.

It really all depends on how Froch handles the sharp boxing skills of Dirrell because as we all know, Carl Froch was losing the fight with Jermain Taylor by quite a few rounds before he knocked Taylor out. Froch was lucky that Taylors stamina was lacking for going the distance of a 12 round fight. Basically Carl Froch got schooled in terms of boxing skills by Taylor. Froch was very lucky to win that fight So, will Dirrell be able to use his boxing skills and ring craft for 12 rounds..If he can he wins, simple as that.

Andre Dirrell has been rocked a few times with punchers that hit nowhere near as hard as Carl Froch. Also Dirrells level of opposition is not in the same class of Froch's. And there is an experience factor with Dirrell also, not to mention he is fighting in Carl Froch's home town of Nottingham, UK. Everything is against Dirrell in this fight, the only positive he has is he decent boxing skills and good movement.

But with all the negative factors in mind, i think Dirrell will be seeing stars at some point in the fight. He will lose by KO, because he can't run all night, so at some point he will have to stand and fight. This means getting caught with some big punches from Froch, then i think it's all over.

Let me know what you think..

**Quick Super Six Update**

Arthur Abraham Knocks out Jermain Taylor in the 12 Round!. Abraham was ahead anyway and was landing some hard shots in every round. But in the 12th he threw a wide hook, then a straight down the middle that connected flush in the face of Taylor and made him hit the canvas like a sack of spuds! Abraham fought a great fight, he covered up when he needed to, and he unloaded when the times were right.

Mikkel Kessler was ringside, he looked shocked at what he had seen. It looked like he was thinking "Do i really have to fight this guy"!!

Carl Froch Retains his WBC Title against Andre Dirrell. This was a terrible fight, very boring. Carl looked amatuerish, and was basically running after Dirrell all night. Dirrell just ran all night. It was a very close fight which Dirrell could of won if he didn't just run and run all night long.. The judges obviously gave it to Carl Froch because he was coming forward all night trying to make a fight of it. Very close fight, which, in my opinion Carl Froch was lucky to win. He was lucky the fight was at home to be honest.

But it's onwards and upwards. Froch will fight Kessler next, which should be a fight with much more action then this one. Andre Dirrell takes on Arthur Abraham.

Froch is too experienced for dirrell. As fast as dirrell is with handspeed and moving in and out, i cant see him beating froch.

Authur Abraham to win the whole tournament. He is a tough guy with great boxing ability and power.

Cant wait! two exciting fights on tonight. Abraham Vs Taylor should be one hell of a fight.

Froch will win against dirrell but he will lose at sometime in the super six event on a whole.

This is what boxing needs.

See you ringside!

That was one shhweet punch from king arthur. right on the button. Taylors hands stayed in guard mode even though he was ko'wd.

Taylor should retire.

Dirrell boxed his ass off. Boxing is so weak now a days... Boxing is so weak now a days. Froch was owned and had to resort to dirty tactics. This fight split decision was a f&*king joke.

froch overrates his own power. he hardly had dirrell in trouble. it was more like the other way round.

cash searcher said...

Froch will lose the next fight no doubt about it. Hell he lost this fight. hes just a brawler that can take a punch ok, just ok. He does not have the granite chin he says he has. Dirrell had him hurt a few times. Dirrell is noted as a soft puncher!
