Froch-Kessler II April Date Under Dispute, Not Set Yet

EDITOR'S NOTE: Multiple sources in the UK have advised BoxingScene.com that April 27th has not been finalized as the date for Froch-Kessler II. While the IBF has disclosed that date, and multiple outlets in Canada have reported it as well, we've been told their reports are wrong.

The super middleweight unification between Carl Froch (30-2, 22 KOs) and Mikkel Kessler (46-2, 35 KOs) is heading to a date of April 27th, according to sources with knowledge of the details. The original date being circulated was May 25th. The venue will reportedly end up being the O2 Arena in London. The winner of the match will 90 days to deal with IBF mandatory challenger Adonis Stevenson, which means the fight has to happen no later than July 27. Kessler first faced Froch in 2010 as part of the Super Six tournament and won a twelve round unanimous decision.
