The Cobra

Carl Froch
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the performance of Carl Froch, who just absolutely blew out Lucian Bute in five rounds. It was this simple; Bute could hit Froch but never really hurt him and every time Froch hit Bute, he seemed to really hurt him.

Just look at the record; the run Froch is on since 2008 within his division is as impressive as any in the sport of boxing. No, he isn't the best fighter in the super middleweight class- that distinction has been earned by Andre Ward. But Froch has an Erik Morales quality to him- not just in being a salty, hard-nosed, red-ass- but in that whether he wins, loses or draws, he usually puts on a good show.

Honestly, all things being equal, I'd rather see a Froch fight than one involving Ward. And judging by the crowd he drew in Nottingham, he has truly arrived as star in the UK.
As for Bute, you hate to use the term “exposed” as it's oftentimes overused but this did remind me of the scene in “The Wizard of Oz” when it turned out that the wonderful, wonderful, almighty wizard was just a feeble old man behind a curtain pulling on levers and pushing some buttons. Without the safe cocoon of Montreal and a carefully hand-picked opponent, he was indeed exposed to a large degree.
