While Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao stole the headlines, there was actually some great boxing this past weekend, none of which was better than the Super Six semifinal showdown between Glen Johnson and Carl Froch.
Johnson and Froch put on an old school battle, each trading shots in the middle of the ring and each having their moments.
In what was a back-and-forth affair, the 42-year-old Johnson seemed to gain a slight advantage in the early rounds, landing several powerful overhand rights, but Froch was never fazed, usually answering each right by Johnson with a flurry of punches and movement.
The end result was a majority decision win for Froch and a matchup in the Super Six finals against Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward.
With every high profile fight, there is a domino effect which affects the rest of the division. So going forward, what did we learn from Froch vs. Johnson?
Here are three things I can surmise.
