Froch - "I was misquoted"

"Amir was reacting to a misquote that was put to him. What I actually said was that if that happened to me I'd retire, but I'm 35 years old," Froch said.

"If I was Amir of course I'd be regrouping. I turned professional at 25, it's a totally different ball game at that age.

"At 25 he's still got some of his best years ahead of him physically. Mentally it's a tough defeat to get over, but he's done it before following a devastating knockout by (Breidis) Prescott.

"He knows he's got a vulnerability and that his punch resistance isn't very good, so what he needs to do is adjust his style.

"He should use his range, fast hands and fitness to move around like he used to do. I don't know why he seems to get involved in tear-ups."

what a guy, rather than react immaturely like Khan did, he completely sidestepped Khan's digs and responded with class.

I know Froch talked a lot of shit coming up, but to be fair it got him into the position he's in now and after a late start in boxing, I think it's fair to say the ends justified the means. Even seeing him on ringside "I'm man enough to admit that if I didn't chin Calzaghe, he'd have done me on points"

Great response by the Cobra :good

Yes, right after he wins iron jaw of the year.
He won that in 2010 when he took Maidana's bombs without falling.
Ah, the same year he won Dancer of the Year for his rendition of Cotton Eye Joe.
:lol: :yep
