Froch's competition level
Froch has faced:
Pascal-who went on to win the lineal LH championship
Taylor-who had been the lineal champ at MW
Are there other guys who have faced top competition like this? YES!!!
But they are all(or almost all) top 10 P4P fighters.
Is Froch a top 10 P4P fighter? No. He is very damn good and if you made a list of the top 100 fighters in the sport he has to be in the low 20s (maybe little higher than that).
The top 10 P4P guys that have faced a level of competition that is equal to(sometimes greater) or close to the level that Froch has faced, are all uber talented. Blessed through genetics with much more than Froch.
But Froch continues to show that underrated ability and athleticism, combined with a great chin, hard work, and almost unmatched desire, allows a fighter to go a long way:
Facing the best, taking some lumps, but giving the fans what we want and giving everything in the ring.
