One of the toughest guys in boxing is Carl Froch. He has fought the best fighters in his division consecutively and has come out victorious more often than not. Froch has a leaky defense and has absorbed big punches from power punchers, often without even batting an eyelid.
Although Froch doesn’t have one punch knockout power, he has very heavy hands that will hurt when connected, which makes his opponents respect him even more.


Carl Froch recent run of opponents in the Super Six Tournament has perhaps been the most impressive resume during recent years in boxing. Not only were his opponents tough, but he also travelled, often to their backyards to face them.
Many people forget that before the tournament, Froch has faced very tough competition coming up through the ranks also. This is what made him such a gritty, determined and experienced fighter. Froch is trained by Robert McCracken, and they’ve formed a strong bond since Froch’s amateur days.
• Froch has a high work-rate, which can be attributed to his runs. It consists of 4-5 runs per week, the longest being between 6-7 miles, at a very intense pace of 6 minutes per mile.
• In terms of his punching power, Froch acknowledges the fact that you can only improve it to a certain extent. However, he credits his power partly to his wide back, which he attained from doing many pull ups.
• Push ups is a form of exercise that Froch recommends. He has really honed this exercise to the highest level, with his ability to do between 200-250 push ups in 2 and a half minutes.
There’s really more than meets the eye with Carl Froch. When you watch him fight, his style and technical ability is crude, but underrated and more importantly, underneath it all is a man that’s willing to go through hell to beat his opponent.
Through sheer determination and a high work rate combined with his physical strength, Froch manages to outfight his opponents to victory in most cases.
