Eubank: Carl Froch is Willing To Stake His Life To Win

Carl Froch's Sky Sports Box Office rematch with Mikkel Kessler cannot fail to live up to its billing, according to Chris Eubank. The countdown to Froch-Kessler II has begun in earnest as Nottingham's IBF super-middleweight champion aims to avenge his 2010 defeat to the Dane. That Herning contest was an epic which saw the two fighters scrap to a standstill before Kessler came out on top on the judges' cards.

He told Sky Sports News: "What I know about these fighters, especially Froch, is that he has integrity as a fighter which means that he will go all the way, almost - I think it's fair to say - that he's willing to give his life.

"When you have a man that has that type of grain, it's always going to be an entertaining fight. We are members of the public, we are ordinary people to these men because they have committed to do something that is extraordinary. And so for us we sit and admire, in awe of their integrity and truth. It's a beautiful thing. I can't compare it to my era, it wouldn't be fair to the fighters who are around today. It's a different era, and hopefully these two men can do something to inspire the nation with their abilities."

Never was a fan of Eubank, even back in the day, but especially now with all his blabbering on and on like whatever he says is some grandiose epic truth we all must be clamoring to know. But THIS FIGHT…

poetic words from Eubank, he's got a point though. since and before the Colosseum days, the average Joe just loves watching people put themselves through hell for the sake of entertainment... are you not entertained!!!!! ;P
