Default Froch v Taylor

Just saw the highlights of the 11th and 12th round.

Great win for Froch!

Anyone watch it?

I didn't get to see the fight, but I read that it was a crazy comeback in the final minute of the final round. Tough break for Jermain Taylor, he still looked awesome the entire fight, but gets shut down in the final minute, that sucks. I hope to see Taylor back in the mix at MW, I have always liked him, but you gotta wonder if he is in the twilight of his career.

Yeah he did seem that Taylor was the better fighter throughout but credit to Froch he was relentless in the 12th Round. Really went for it and finished the fight.

Just looking forward to Hatton v Pac now.

I give much credit to Froch, but I have read some writers saying that he could be a new face in the middleweight division, and I just don't see it. I think this fight was more about an aging Taylor getting too aggressive at the end and paying for it big time. I don't see Froch as being able to dominate the division.
