Carl Froch: I Will Add Kessler's Belt To My Collection

Carl Froch has told Sky Sports News that he is confident of facing and beating Mikkel Kessler in the spring of 2013. Britain's IBF super-middleweight world champion lost a points decision to the Dane in 2010 in Denmark - just one of two defeats on his record. Kessler won the WBA title from Brian Magee earlier this month and a rematch unification fight between the pair would be a major draw. Froch feels the rematch will head to the UK and this time the outcome will not be the same.

"I wasn't at my best when I fought Kessler and I am firing on all cylinders now, you have seen that when I ripped the world title from Lucien Bute and I defended it against Yusaf Mack with a body shot, folded him in half like a deckchair. And I am looking forward to getting Kessler and being at my best. It is going to be a tough fight, a hard fight between two warriors, because the first one was a proper brawl," Froch said.

"People are looking forward to the rematch and they want to see much of the same. I don't know if I'm looking forward to the rematch but I can get up for it, get excited and I know I can go to the well if I need to. If me and Kessler go at it for 12 rounds there will only be one winner. I strongly believe I will defend my title. He has just won the WBA title by beating Brian Magee so I will add another belt to the collection which will be fantastic."

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;12861950]Do you know what undisputed champion means? Froch is the IBF's world champion and Abraham is the WBO's world champion. Not hating, I rate Ward as the sport's best. However, if a fighter wants to be undisputed champion…

[QUOTE=Trippy;12859923]Piss off. Ward's already beat the other belt holders, he won the super 6, he beat the LHW champ too boot. Stop hating Ward is the best at 168 and he's proved it. I'd be intrigued to see a Kessler…
