He explained: โ€œIf George Groves could put him down, I would have kept him down but yeah he would have been a person I would have loved to have fought.โ€

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Froch On Fighting, โ€˜The Cobraโ€™ hit back.

โ€œYou got done by Watson, you got done by Eubank, you got smoked twice by Collins, you were only 32.โ€

He continued: โ€œI was 36 nearly 37 jumping in with George Groves, 10 years my junior, and I put him on button moon. Iโ€™ve got bags of respect for you but letโ€™s be realistic, I reckon Iโ€™ve got your number. โ€œ

    1. Would have been a cracking fight think Nigelโ€™s ferocity and non stop attack would just about give him the edge. Has to be 60/40 in Benns favour.

  1. Benn all day..Froch had a good chin granted,But Benn wouldโ€™ve put him away..As would Eubank,Collins & Watson !!!

  2. Let’s not forget the amount of WARS nigel Benn has been through Wharton , Eubank, especially Gerald Mcllelland…that fight basically finished him psychically and emotionally. Froch was a great fighter too but he has been in one war with jermain Taylor where he turned it around

    1. Frochwouldn’t of even lasted 5 rounds with Ben, in fact calzaghe would of beaten froch and he would of done it easily …….Benn, eubank, Watson , mclen, calzaghe and Collins would of knocked him out
