Carl Froch Discusses Rematches With Kessler, Ward

Carl Froch has much of his future mapped out for the next twelve months. First he faces Yusaf Mack in a scheduled defense of his IBF super middleweight title on November 17. Following that fight, Froch is then going to have a rematch with Lucian Bute on a date in March or April in Montreal.

After Bute, Froch would like to have a rematch with Danish superstar Mikkel Kessler, who decisioned Froch in the Super Six Tournament. He also wants revenge on WBA/WBC champion Andre Ward, but prefers to have a match with Kessler if given the choice.

"The Lucian Bute rematch is going to take place early next year, probably in March-April time," Froch said to Sky Sports News. "Then we will look at getting a rematch with either Mikkel Kessler or Andre Ward - I think we'd prefer a rematch with Kessler because that's a fight for the fans and for the television. It's a big fight, it's exciting. He's got a win against me, albeit a very close, controversial decision away from home.

"That's something I want to avenge. In a fight with Kessler the fans know they are guaranteed excitement. We both stand and fight, we are both proud warriors. One thing's for sure, if I can get the fight with Andre Ward it would be a massive fight and that would secure my legacy. I think I can win the fight, I really do, but let's get it in England. I went over to the USA to fight him, let's get him over here."

Agree mate, the kind of noise level from the crowd in the Bute fight would be intimidating for anyone. Couldn't see much of a chance of Ward coming over to the UK though.

A Kessler rematch in Nottingham would be great, i'd really like to see that. I can understand why Froch wants to fight Ward again, but i can't see a 2nd fight being any different from the first to be honest.

[QUOTE=lutenco;12618427]Andre Ward is a great fighter,he has that kind of determination like BHOP has with more skills and hands speed,FROCH can't beat WARD in 1000 fights. WARD beat FROCH(now IBF champ) and AA(now WBO champ) so in my opinion he…
