Weekend Wrap Up: Back With A Vengance!
Not too many people gave Carl Froch a shot against IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute last Saturday in Nottingham, England. Froch stunned many as he hurt Bute early and finished him for good in the 5th round with a huge statement performance.
Bute landed some good shots early too but Froch just has too much world class experience and he adjusted and never looked back.
Some say Bute got exposed. I don’t agree with that. Bute just doesn’t have much world class experience. Froch has fought the best in his last 8 fights. I mean the best! He’s been honed with world class fighting experience. Even in his losses he’s taken great things from them. He’s been forged by his competition to fight at a level where others with less experience will sink and that’s the award Froch has gotten for taking such a tough road.
Carl deserves to be in the top 10 p4p now. At least #8 or #9. Congrats to a great performance and props for Bute for displaying class. He will be back!
5x World Champion in the Jr. Bantamweight, Bantamweight, & Featherweight Johnny Tapia passed away in his home Sunday. he was 45 years old. Tapia was passionate and lived a crazy life in and out of jail and trouble. it was one of the best 115lb champions ever though and his win over cross town rival Danny Romero one of the best fights of his career. He was loved by many for his genuine attitude. He WILL be missed. Rest in peace champ!
Yesterday Paul Williams was involved in a trajic motor cycle accident that left him paralyzed from the waste down. Williams was to fight Canelo Alvarez in the fall and this is just horrible news but they say despite the circumstances Paul’s spirits are very good. I hope the best for him as I’m sure you all do. he was a classy champion who gave it his all. This will support and aide him in this tragic time.
