‘What a Night, What a Fight!” says Jim Glen of Bute-Froch

Just back from Nottingham and as the saying goes, “you’re only as good as your last fight!”

Well, me basing Carl Froch’s ‘probable’ loss on his last three performances was a big mistake, no, a HUGE one!

Froch’s performance not only defied the experts, it defied the Froch of late. Froch didn’t just take command of last nights show before a packed Nottingham Venue, it would have sent the Sherriff himself running, as Robin Hood in the guise of Carl Froch, stole Bute’s title, the bookie’s money and the critic’s score!

The first round opened in the usual fashion, two top lads feeling out one another for a chance and a way to move in, score and break the other man down. The first half of the round was like this, but it finished with some good exchanges, Froch the busier and more aggressive, though Bute got him a nice one. 10 -9 Froch.

The second round was more of the latter half of the first, with both fighters landing, Bute catching Froch coming in, and though I have no doubt Froch offered him respect, “you could see it,” Bute just didn’t penetrate enough. Back and forth exchanges, and one wouldn’t have been faulted in calling it an even round, I gave it to Froch as a matter of a continuation of the same as in the end of the first round, 10-9 Froch.

It would be Bute’s best, and only real good strong round. (continue reading…)

My colleague Robert Uzzell and I recently attended three major fight cards on the east coast. The events just so happened to take place on back-to-back-to-back weekends. Hey, who says all the good fights land in Vegas? As gas prices soared to about $3.80 per gallon, we wondered if Greyhound or even Air Tran would be a feasible option in the future. Nevertheless, we gassed up the vehicle and began our journey.

First up was the much-anticipated rematch between Antonio ‘The Tijuana Tornado’ Margarito and Miguel ‘Junito’ Cotto. The house was packed as the majority Hispanic crowd came to support their respective compatriots. There were maybe three times as many Cotto supporters than there were fans for Margarito.

Jesse Brinkley Calls Out Carl Froch & Jeff Lacy!

by on Apr.29, 2009, under Boxing News

RENO, NV. (April 29, 2009) World ranked super middleweight Jesse Brinkley watched with interest this Saturday night as Carl Froch came from behind with seconds to go in the 12th and final round to stop former middleweight world champion  Jermain Taylor and retain his WBC Super Middleweight title. The back and forth battle was broadcast live on SHOWTIME from the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, CT.

Said Brinkley, “It was a decent fight but the skill level for both guys was below average. Froch is a tough guy but his best defense is his great chin. Had Taylor been more aggressive he certainly would have stopped the fight in the third round.”
