"I have the champion mentality and I know I should beat Abraham. He sits back and has a high European guard with his hands held high. If he does that then I will try and break his ribs." -- Carl Froch on his Oct. 2 fight with Arthur Abraham in Monaco (Sunday Mercury) (Photo by John Gichigi/Getty Images)

The Froch-Dirrell Scorecards. The Italian judge giving rounds 11 and 12 to Froch makes you wonder exactly what fight he was watching. Bad Left Hook officially scored the first five rounds, all rounds with relatively little action, to Dirrell, while none of the judges scored more than three rounds for Dirrell. All three judges also scored round 8 for Froch, in which Dirrell put on a clinic for about 2:30 before Froch rocked Dirrell at the end of the round. One would hope this would have provided more insight into how the fight was scored, but it almost provides more questions than answers. via Fightnews.
