Povetkin if I remember correctly had never been fully knocked down

Just checked - he has, but he'd never been stopped and he hadn't really been troubled other than Wlad

Puts himself at 3 ahead of Calzaghe.  Reckons he fought no-one then reels the names off including Kessler who he beat in his prime.  Apparently that was because he had a damaged hand though. Then he can't accept fellow pro's telling him he's talking baalocks.

Hysterical.  Reckon Froch has a picture of Calzaghe next to his wedding photo he's still so obsessed. 😄

If the Jermain Taylor fight had ended a minute earlier, if Groves had been given a bit more chance to recover from the ref. Froch needs to remember he was a good fighter, and  a joy to watch in the ring, but the fates played into his hands on more than one occassion.

Technically he was nowhere on the level of Calzaghe and I wouldn't have Froch in the top five British super middleweights, never mind all.

Not sure about the stoppage on the Conor Benn fight - real time Vargas looked completely sparked and out but as soon as the fight stopped he appeared completely lucid. Tell you what, Conor's Dad would have a couple more 'L's on his record if that ref had been officiating Nigel's fights.

Courtney and Bridges was a good fight.

I usually switch over when a woman's bout comes on but they threw everything at each other. 

Agree with your view about the Benn stoppage, Vargas could have possibly gone down to take a count. 

Fair play to Benn, he was sharp and accurate right from the start.
