A Cobra Is Taylor-Made For Bad Intentions

I’ll come clean. I have never seen Carl "the Cobra" Froch (24-0, 19 KOs) fight. Outside of this YouTube boxing clip, I know as much about Carl Froch as I know about nuclear physics. But I do know something about boxing and a little bit about Jermain "Bad Intentions" Taylor (28-2-1, 17 KOs). What am I getting at? Based on what I have seen on YouTube and what I know about Jermain Taylor, I’d be very shocked to see Taylor lose.
Bernard Hopkins. Winky Wright. Kelly Pavlik. Jermain Taylor has fought and competed well against all three, a "who’s who" of pound-for-pound caliber fighters. Carl Froch’s best opponent was the competent, albeit unspectacular, Robin Reid. To make matters worse, this will be only the second time that Froch is fighting outside of the UK. That’s bad news. I expect Bad Intentions to take advantage of this as well as his huge advantage in ring competition.
I wish I could provide you with more information, but I’m pretty confident predicting a Jermain Taylor stoppage victory over Carl Froch. Taylor is still very fast and strong at super middleweight. Froch appears to have decent quickness but it’s really hard to asses what he’s done based on his woeful competition. If I’m wrong, don’t blame me, blame YouTube.
