Maybe the question that should be asked is, "Has Kessler improved since he fought Calzaghe?" If he hasn't improved then its impossible for Froch to have faced a better Kessler.

Where the fight takes place is also important. It's tougher to beat a fighter in his home town with thouands behind him, and not just because of officiating.

That depends entirely on the fighter.

Do you give Bute the benefit of the doubt because he fought Froch in his back yard then?

Home-field advantage is important in most sports but in boxing it's huge. There are a number of factors at play,

1. The home crowd lifts a fighter and sways a referee's decision-making
2. Hormonal effects of fighting at home, principle of territoriality common to all animal species http://www.ingentaconnect.com/conten...00002/art00969
3. The judging is often slanted towards the home fighter

I give him credit for it, and think he would do better in Montreal in front of 20,000 support. Of course home advantage while important, doesn't guarantee a win.

I also remember reading that Calzaghe very rarely sparred because of his hand problems. He sparred nowhere near as much as the average pro.

The one that Calzaghe beat he was in his prime then. Froch lost to a faded one eyed Kessler.
