Karl Frosch blames Joe Calzaghe for not having a grudge fight

It remains one of the biggest in British boxing. Carl Frosch vs. Joe Calzaghe. Who would win and how? These two middleweight greats, each with stellar careers, could have been bummed but couldn’t quite manage it, peaking at different times. But Froch, who seems to think about this losing battle as much, if not more, than we fans do, spoke again about what might have happened if he and Jo had had it.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Froch says he blames “The Pride of Wales” for the fight’s failure. “Cobra” also explained how he sees two possible outcomes of what would have happened if the battle had taken place.

“It should have happened to the fans, and unfortunately it didn’t,” Frosch said of an altercation between himself and the undefeated Calzaghe. “No matter what the promotional split is, if fighters want a fight to happen, it will, so I totally blame Joe Calzaghe for that, because I think he knew he was going to get Cupride.” Calzaghe would either beat me on points, he’s super fit , and so strong, and a good fighter, or I would point his chin in. I would knock him “El Sparko.” Robin Reed hurt him, Robin Reed put him down, he lost a split decision, he never got a rematch btw, but he [Calzaghe] Mario Fett brought back. This isn’t a ‘Joe Calzaghe beat’ session, this is just telling you the facts.”

But is Frosh correct in his “facts?” Calzaghe as we know, he never loses a single fight, the all-night super fast Southerner always finds a way to get a W. But kick him out? Froch might have been right on his first potential fight score, having gone down on points if he had fought Joe.

However, we’ll never know, this fight was limited to Dream Fight status. What we do know is this: It would have been great. It’s very likely that it would have been such a great fight that it would have screamed one more time, maybe a trilogy.

Who do you think would have won if the super Calzaghe-Frosh fight had taken place?

For the record, as if you didn’t know or need a reminder, Calzaghe came away with a record of 46-0 (32) clean, this is in 2008. Frosch retired in 2014, with a record of 33-2 (24). Calzaghe was knocked down four times during his career, and Frosh was tackled twice during his ring time.
