Former world champion turned pundit Carl Froch has come in for some heated criticism from a lot of fans online after his scorecards this weekend in Bellew vs Usyk.
Working as a pundit for Sky Sports Froch had predicted a Bellew win coming into the fight.
While Tony was ahead on two of the official scorecards, Froch in the view of many fans had it too far wide all together in his favour.
Here’s some of what people thought of Froch’s card:
Carl Froch not given Usyk a round yet ? I can see it being 3 rounds to 2 either way, it’s a close fight so far

Only @PaulMalignaggi talking sense. got bellew 5 rounds up after 3. Same old sky ?

Carl Froch must be watching a different fight to have Bellew 3 up

Carl Froch scorecards and his multiple 10-10 rounds are cancer. @SkySportsBoxing should wheel Jim Watt out of retirement for a last hurrah

Ultimately scorecards didn’t count from anyone in the end as Usyk landed the perfect shot to stop the fight.
But as always in boxing, fans like to debate scorecards whatever the outcome of the fight is.
