Bernard Hopkins: Froch Will Win and It Won't Be Close!

IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins told Sky Sports that he wants Carl Froch to beat Mikkel Kessler in their rematch this Saturday night in London. Hopkins would like to fight Froch if he wins, but first the 48-year-old champion must retain his title on July 13th against mandatory challenger Karo Murat at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"I like Froch," he told Sky Sports' podcast, Toe-2-Toe. "He has the experience of not just the first fight between them but also the tournament (Super Six) he went through. I see Kessler has not been too active and I don't see that he has got better over the last two or three fights or even two or three years, so I am going for Froch. I think it is going to be an exciting fight but I think he is going to win - and precisely. I don't think this is going to be close either. He's going to win by at least eight rounds out of the 12."

[QUOTE=wja1966]I understand why you would say that but i have to dis-agree. Magee fought Froch years ago when they were both British level and Froch is a different animal now. Plus Froch (according to Magee) told Kessler how to beat magee in their fight so hes not happy with carl either so ...

I got Kessler by late ko. Any one want some action just PM me and let me know how many points u want to wager. Bet would be for the winner not for the ko.

All Bernard,wants,to do is talk Froch up like he is the best SMW out there, then trick him into moving up to 75 so he han get a big fight with him over in the UK. Benard has enhanced his legacy more than once by getting top guys from lower divisions to move up out of there element so he can feast...

He said it because he was on UK tv watched by UK fans. Simple pr tactic. Don't read much into it.

Bhop is only saying this because he wants to fight Froch. If any of you think Froch can even beat an almost 50 year old Hopkins you are insane lol. Easy UD for Bhop. Froch moves like a one legged retard in molasses.
