Just watched Froch v Taylor fight. Brilliant last round from FRoch and good to see him calling out Calzaghe!

Saw the last round as well. Fantastic last round, impressive stuff. Next big fight I'm waiting for is Haye v Kiltschko!

 Yep, and to think he was behind by 4 points on 2 of the 3 judges cards. If Taylor had made it those last 14 seconds he would have been champ. The 3rd round when Froch got knocked down was incredible. Its been a while since I've seen someone take as much power punches and still be able to stand up at the end of the round. His jaw is granite. Dosent even bother protecting it.

Round three: Valuev is only throwing single punches and Haye can see them coming. A right uppercut again catches Valuev flush and Haye follows it up with a straight left hook. Valuev is made to miss and is struggling to find the target. A glancing left hook on the bell catches Valuev. Great round for Haye.

Round four: Valuev is getting closer and catches Haye with a right hand. Still the Russian is only throwing single shots and Haye looks comfortable. A left hand from Haye again catches Valuev who responds with two quick jabs. Valuev ends the round with a right. Better round from the Russian champion.

Round five: A three-punch burst from Haye doesn't hurt the Russian but these are eye-catching moments for the Brit. Valuev ups the pace in the dying seconds of the round and pins Haye against the ropes and catches the Brit with a right-left combination. This is bubbling up nicely.

Round six: Haye's corner work at swelling under his right eye and he's blowing heavily as the sixth round begins. Valuev catches Haye with a looping right and Haye responds with two of his own. Haye is pinned in the corner and is again the recipient of more punishment from the Russian. Valuev ends the round well and he looks to be warming into this fight now. Valuev is shading this in my opinion.

Should I be impressed that it's lasted 6 7 rounds thus far?

Round seven Haye's continuing to stick with the same, in-out tactics. He's still looking strong and lively but a right from Value to the top of the Brit's head sends him into the ropes, but he shows neat footwork to escape from trouble. Valuev catches Haye with a decent right at the end of the round but Haye counters. Haye is taking too much punishment for my liking and is not catching Valuev enough.

Round eight: A sharp jab catches Valuev but Haye is going to need combinations if he is going to win this fight. He's not catching either the Russian or the eyes of the ringside judges. Valuev's pace is slowing and Haye finally picks him off with a right-left combination. The Russian tries to respond but he cannot catch Haye in this round. Is the Russian tiring?

I don't know, is he?



Round nine: It's an uneventful start to the round, with a right from Haye midway through sparking it into life. He follows it with another left jab, right hook combination and Valuev responds with a solitary jab. Better from Haye.

Round 10: Haye starts with a decent left hook, but Valuev responds with a right hook. A right to the body makes the Russian wince but he ends the round well. A right catches Haye in the corner, and a later left again pins the Brit against the ropes. A right on the bell from Valuev sees him end the round on a high. Haye is going to need to take these last two rounds.


Round 11: A two-punch combination from Haye and the Brit seems in confident mood as he smiles at his Russian opponent. But Haye's not busy enough and he's hurting the frustrated Russian far too frequently. A left hook from Valuev hurts Haye and he responds with one of his own, right on the bell. Haye may need something special now.


Is it going to go to points?
