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.
I thought Froch's actual performance against Mikkel was one of his worst in recent years. It was still a great fight and a very close fight, but he was so out of control at times and really wild...he's corrected those things in recent fights.
Froch has gotten a fair bit better since the first fight.
