Just About Nobody Enjoyed Carl Froch's Commentary For Sky Sports

While allowing for a predictable defeat, Conor McGregor's night went pretty well. He will leave Las Vegas infinitely richer, with his reputation intact: lasting ten rounds on his feet against Floyd Mayweather - he never hit the canvas - has earned him the respect of much of the boxing world. 

Not everyone was impressed, however. Carl Froch was on commentary for Sky Sports ringside, and he was in no mood for charity toward McGregor. The former World Champ said that he "wasn't impressed" and "expected more" from McGregor, in spite of it being his first professional fight.

Many viewers believe he was excessive in his praise for Mayweather, too: in noted contrast to the Showtime commentators who were more willing to point out Mayweather's limits.

Here's a portion of the reaction among fans to Carl Froch.
