Nope, no show from the British broadcasters. Such shame was it was top class.

I watched it online. Cost me a tenner but well worth it. :thumbsup:

I'm sure I'll find a download of it then tomorrow. Hatton next week.

hmm this is 'the cobra'?
saw him in one of (or his first) televised fight many many moons ago and he absolutely overpowered his opponent - incredibily strong in comparison (think almost knocked the guy out with a jab) but seemed to have no technical skill at all.

seen him lately hes still boxing the same way really but with some technical improvements - no wonder he almost got beaten when fighting a decent opponent. only his toughness and power let him come through.

It is on : There will be a delayed transmission of the fight on ITV4 at 2030 BST on Sunday, with it repeated later on ITV1.

Watch It.

calzaghe dodged taylor, and its evident why.

respect to froch, he's beaten one of the best around, and he might get the recognition he deserves now.

sounds like froch was outclassed though really - only won because hes like a brick.
bbc report has some (typical) classic boxing quotes too:

"What I did in the 12th, that was unbelievable," .... "I showed a little composure. I got up and knocked him out in round 12. What more do you want?"
How about not losing for 11 rounds ...

on calzage
"If he gets out of his armchair I will show everybody what I can do"
the guy retires and is past his peak so he gets called out. typical stupidity.
why not call out ali whilst you are at it?

How about not losing for 11 rounds ...



Are you drunk?

The fight was even going into the 12th - Taylor didn't really do anything of substance from round 6 on.

judges had taylor 4 ahead after 11 rounds and froch was down in 3rd - hardly awe inspiring until a late turn

Two of the three judges had Taylor 4 ahead, the other was exactly the opposite i.e. had Froch ahead by 4. Either way, still doesn't equate to him not winning any of the 11 rounds you referred to, does it?

From your earlier comments, it doesn't even sound like you watched the fight anyway...

Cant see froch holding onto his title long tho. Kudos to him tho, man is tough and has balls.

Im just surprised taylor gassed out AGAIN. Hes known for having a **** stamina and once again it failed him, just dont think he has the heart. He was owning froch tho no denying that, even knocking him down, taylor looked twice as fast as froch as hes that slow.

Froch will be a handful for anyone tho, his style is ugly and he punches hard from weird angles and his chin is made of granite. Hope froch fights pavlik next or andre, would be a great match up and think he can beat them. Froch would loose to kessler tho and hopkins would own him as he has no defense what so ever apart from using his face to stop punches lol

i would have put taylor 5 rounds clear with 6 drawn - if i had to choose out of those drawn rounds then froch would only have had round 10 imo even though he was not really touching taylor other than smashing his blocks (hard).

As for the judge that had froch ahead... lol.. guess he got his cards round the wrong way.

Id just like to agree with everything that Chidda said above me who says it better than I could have
