My thinking is exactly as yours. Froch's standing has rightly rocketed in recent years and now encompasses the varied levels of casual boxing fans in England.

The respect that Kessler would have gained last night and in the previous fight in the eyes of those fans will be similar to the respect he deservedly gets from those who perhaps know a bit more about the sport.

I wouldn't want to see that jeopardised by a third fight. The whole event last night and what the fighters brought to the ring was a credit to the sport.

He blocked several shots and manoeuvred out of the way of more. I avoided scoring even rounds too.
Wasn't the ref on the point of stopping Kessler?

Carl Froch was so open for overhand rights everytime he steps in with jabs. That overhand right counter over Carl's jab was there all night for Kessler yet he barely threw it.

Yea, after re-watching the final round I seemed to have been confused with how it actually played out. I thought that when Froch hurt Kessler and the ref was hesitating, that Kessler landed a big overhand right and managed to push Froch back, then avoided whatever was thrown back whilst landing some of his own. I don't know where I got that from...

B-Hop (like his "protégé", Ward) is an actual nightmare of the sport -- now he sticks on your chest, now he's slipping, now he vanishes... Grandpa is a monster trickster...

This is the only tune I was repeating over and over, since they put this fight together: "Froch should be smart and stay behind his long jab; but Carl will not resist the temptation of a slugfest"... And he didn't resist...

Not so sure on this one...
Froch's long jab is actually his best shot -- even if he didn't seem to be fully aware of that... When one tries to throw a right overfand punch he's likely to get Froch's right uppercut (his favorite punch)...
It was precisely this long jab Ward did not like in the first 4 rounds against Froch -- then Ward was so smart and glued himself onto Froch's chest, in order to perform his famous fake "old school inside boxing"...

She was also the only judge who had the Rios/Abril fight right. I guess she was sitting in a bad spot or something. Can't wrap my head around this one.

I thought Kessler was going to better this time now he doesn't have double vision? Or has that disappeared?

People act like Froch now hasn't clearly improved and a better fighter since 2010 in regards to their first fight.
The vision problems occured after the first fight, not during. Kessler was physically 100% in this fight.

Froch has improved but Kessler has declined.

Correct, watching it live I thought the ref was about to wave it off but I rewatched the fight today and it's clear he was doing it because of the low blow, Kessler did a better job dodging shots in the last 20 seconds than I gave him credit for saturday night.

According to Kessler and his team and fans, the eye problems were there prior to the Froch fight.
