Froch: Kessler is Going To Receive a Serious Whooping!

Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler will square off in "one of the biggest fights in world boxing" this year in an explosive rematch on British soil. Nottingham IBF super-middleweight champion Froch suffered a contentious defeat against Kessler as they fought a modern classic in Denmark in 2010.

The veteran has always craved a shot at revenge and promoter Eddie Hearn has delivered arguably the most anticipated fight of 2013 with the two men likely to clash in London on May 25. A specific date and venue will be announced soon with London's O2 Arena on May 25 the most likely.

"Our first fight was pure warfare. We went at each other for every minute of every round and the rematch promises to be even more fiercely contested. I seriously wish I was ringside myself for this fight, because I'm gunning for revenge at all costs and the fight fans are in for a real treat," Froch said.

"I can't wait to get back into camp for this one. I've never felt so motivated. If Mikkel thinks he saw the best of me in Denmark then he is in for a rude awakening. I give him the utmost respect that he has the guts to board that plane and come collect a serious whooping at the hands of the Cobra - let's bring it on!"

I favor Kessler more than Froch but since their first fight I think Kessler has lost a step, while Froch has stepped his game up to a higher level. Froch has faced the stiffer competition, while Kessler has been fairly…

I may be reading something into something that isn't there here but Kessler is just one fight removed from getting dropped hard against no ones definition of elite and with a bit more time Green could have had him out…

You sometimes get two fighters that are just made for each other, which results in epic fights. Ward and Gatti, Pacquiao and Marquez are examples. Froch and Kessler drop into this category, imo. Kessler is a top fighter but I…
