Froch destroys Mack in three rounds
by Cary Hastings
Still IBF Super-middleweight champion Carl “The Cobra” Froch has destroyed Yusaf Mack in three rounds, after two massive body shots rendered the Philadelphian immobile.
Froch began the fight in the same ferocious manner that he ended the last against Lucian Bute, grinding down Mack with a series of rapid combos and striking with power.
Mack was sent to the canvas for a six count in the first round after a body shot knocked the wind out of the American.
Froch continued to dominate Mack in the second round but a late flurry from the 33-year-old before the bell proved that he was dangerous on the offense.
However, “The Cobra” stepped it up another gear in the third round and bludgeoned Mack with two massive body shots towards the end of the round to leave him on his knees gasping for air.
Mack was counted out and Froch remains the IBF Super-middleweight champion with a rematch with Mikkel Kessler in his sights.
