Carl Froch Vows To Hand a "Brutal" Beating on Kessler

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch (30-2, 22KOs) has promised to punish WBA king Mikkel Kessler (46-2, 35KOs) on May 25th at the O2 Arena in London. Froch has promised to avenge a 2010 twelve round decision loss to Kessler, which took place in the Dane's backyard of Herning. Their first fight took place in the second round of the Super Six tournament. Now Froch is the boxer with the homefield advantage and he feels very confident after last year's one-sided beating of Lucian Bute.

"If you were overwhelmed with my performance against Lucian Bute, well you are in for a treat. I knew I had the beating of Bute, despite everyone writing me off. I knew I had the goods to knock him out and take that IBF World title. This time, it all moves up a whole new level. I'm putting the record straight and I promise it will be clinical, brutal and emphatic," Froch told the Nottingham Post.

"Last time, I was throwing wild bombs and then standing back and admiring them. There will be none of that this time around. Once I get Kessler on the hook, I shall be reeling him in for the finish! After our last fight, Kessler looked like he had gone through a car windscreen. Hopefully this time around, the ending is quick for him and his family at ringside. Of course, I wish him no long-term harm. He is a gentleman and a great ambassador for our sport."

[QUOTE=Scary;13183702]Saying that Froch has no defence is just a lack of knowledge, whenever you step forward against The Cobra there's a big chance that the long, long monkey arms will swarm you with a 4-5 punch combination, so if you…

sticking to the outcome i saw before the fight was signed. Froch T/KO, Kassler fans will claim that he was drained at 168.

I love Froch but in a fight where they're both going to let their hands go I just think Kessler's punch flow is smoother, has more variety to it. And the crowd won't bother the Dane who wasn't fazed by…
