Froch vs Mack: Carl Froch won't underestimate challenger, looking for impressive win

Scott Heavey

Carl Froch says that even though he's the home fighter and a heavy favorite on November 17 against Yusaf Mack, he won't take the American lightly, and is aiming to impress.

Carl Froch tells Sky Sports that despite the fact that November 17 opponent Yusaf Mack is looked at as an "easy" opponent, he won't underestimate the American challenger, and has his sights set on a stoppage win:

"I've seen bits and bobs of him, he likes to throw the right hook and get up close, he's a tall and rangy boxer he moves well, but when he's put under pressure I think he'll fall apart. ... I feel confident, I'm on the case and I've been training well, I've not taken my eye off the ball and I'm training like I'm the challenger.

"It's a daunting prospect, there's no easy fights out there and every fight's difficult. You've only got to be caught by one punch in this game and the fight can turn around dramatically. I'm taking it seriously, like I take all my fights, but I very much expect to do the business."

Froch (29-2, 21 KO) is the unquestioned favorite against Mack (31-4-2, 17 KO), a talented fighter but one who has succumbed to pressure and his own poor stamina in the past. He's a good fighter, and better than a lot of "easy" opponents we see, but Froch is the favorite and deserves to be.

Mack told our own Ryan Bivins last week that he's in top shape, and believes he can pull off what would be the upset of the year:

"I've been here before. I've been here a few times. I've just never kicked the door open. Now I'm here; I'm in shape. Everybody see me trainin' every day. I box no less than 13 rounds. I'm ready. Let's have it. Carl Froch, Cobra, whatever he's called, Garden Snake Froch, it's on. ... Everybody know, if I'm in shape...can't nobody beat me. Everybody know that. Every fight I lost, I was beaten, I just gassed out. What they gonna do when I don't gas out?"
