CARL FROCH will get the chance to avenge the defeat that left him heartbroken when he meets Mikkel Kessler in May.

Froch is desperate to wipe away the memory of the points loss he suffered at the hands of Kessler in Denmark in April 2010.

And that chance will come in a £4m super middleweight unification in London on May 25, which is set to become the biggest fight of the year on these shores.

Froch’s IBF belt and Kessler’s WBA crown will be at stake, with the 02 Arena favourite to stage the bout.

And the Nottingham fighter is ready for another battle against 33-year-old Kessler.

He said: “I’ll be going to war again. It’s not going to be easy because anyone who fights me now is going to turn up in the best possible shape.

“The great news for me is that is will be in the UK because I have done more than my fair share of travelling around the world for fights.

“It was particularly heartbreaking to lose that fight against him. It was the first time I had lost and I lost my WBC world title. I regained it in my next fight but I still had that loss to Kessler.

“I know I could have beaten him on the night but there were a few problems that I won’t go into because people don’t want to hear excuses.

“The things that went wrong in the first fight will not be allowed to happen this time around.

“It’s time for me to put it right and do what needs to be done. I now have a tough training camp ahead of me.”

Froch believes the advancing years will not be a handicap to him and he said: “I feel fit and fresh and strong and ready to do the business.

“I am 35 but I feel fitter and stronger. I am punching so hard and my work-rate is so high.

“I think I am a very young 35 and I feel as though I am at my physical prime. I think I am peaking right now.”

Kessler said: “I promised Carl we would meet again and here we are, getting ready to leave it all in the ring for a second time.

“I gave the utmost respect for Carl, we are very much alike. He is a great champion, a true warrior who has fought the best opponents all over the world in some of the most hostile places.

“I am ready to defeat him once again. I don't care where we fight, I said anytime, anywhere, I plan to make my loyal Viking fans, as well as everybody else in Denmark, very proud once again. I am ready for war.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “This is one for the ages. My hat goes off to both men for putting everything on the line in what can only be an epic battle.

“Too many super fights fall by the wayside, so to make Froch v Kessler 2 is a dream come true.

“These are the kinds of fights and nights that can cement the legacy of Carl Froch and no-one deserves it more. We know what to expect.”
