good for froch, if your in therewith a fighter of limited skills and you can do something like that to make some family or friends or even yourself some money, then go for it,  I have always been a froch fan, now I am a bigger one,  BEFORE THE SYSTEM people YOU, SAY darn THE SYSTEM,  that's a diabolic lyric off his debut alblum, liar and a thief.

I don't think admitting this was the wisest of career choices he could make, EVER!   What a dope.

ladderman: Very true. If the judges are paid off (because no pro-judge is that bad in some fights...via Holyfield-Lewis I , a DRAW! lol- i can't remember holyfield landing punches, back then no one besides heavyweights were big money and they needed the rematch.)why wouldn't fighters do it. What Froch did is a pimple on a mountain of what Margarito did...Froch hurt the system and bettors, Margarito was willing to cheat and kill guys without any remorse or admittance to this day.
