I havent see much of kessler, but just heard on this forum about how good he is supposed to be. I was hearing the same about lacy as well but had hardly seen lacy.
I will go for Joe becauase he has beaten better people and that is the only way i am able to judge it. The fact that Joe is one of the best out there is another reason to go for Joe. I'd prefer Joe to beat one of the americans but Kessler would be a good substitute.
I dont want Joe to box Froch. To be honest i want Froch against kessler. And if Froch beats Kessler i would like to see Froch v Joe very much.
