It doesn't do you any favours fighting below your level for that long, especially as froch has been in with Abraham, Johnson, ward, bute in that time and is probably going to be a better fighter for it.
Froch by 3-4 rounds on the cards, legitimately
I hear you, but there's two sides of that coin. Maybe the injuries has provided Kessler's body with some much needed rest and maybe those hard fights of Froch is catching up on him?
I think Froch boxed his best against Kessler the first time around. He was somewhat lacklustre against Johnson and really wasn't (IMO) competitive against Ward. He did blow out Bute and that was a great performance.
Regardless. This is a pick'em fight. Venue might be decisive. I still gotta go with a Kessler KO, but hey. I'm a Kessler fan untill he goes down in flames. Froch is no. 2 on my list.
