Froch: Only Sensible Fight Out There For Me is Kessler

This past Saturday night, Mikkel Kessler won a strand of the super-middleweight title for a fourth time with a third-round stoppage of Brian Magee in Denmark. The 'Viking Warrior' remained on course for a rematch with Britain's Carl Froch next year with a devastating victory over the ageing Northern Irishman. The win took Kessler's record to 46-2 with 35 knockouts and he said: "It feels great to be champion again.

One option for Kessler would be a potential rematch with Carl Froch, who has made no secret of his desire for another bout with the 33-year-old after being beaten by a close points decision when the two met in April 2010 in a pulsating encounter.

Froch was a guest pundit for Sky Sports and admitted the fighters' promoters have already been in discussions about a return bout next year, possibly in the United Kingdom.

"I think (a rematch) is already step one completed because they've had a productive conversation and it's looking promising that the fight can definitely happen in the spring or early summer in 2013," he said.

"They'll be talking now in the couple of days following that.

"The only sensible fight out there for the fans, for the television, for me and for Mikkel is the rematch.

"The first fight was a humdinger. Everybody loved it who watched it and to get the rematch everyone's going to get excited."

The two are friends and Froch, who defeated veteran Magee in 2006, claimed he was the one to tell Kessler to focus his attack to the body.

"I said to him 'if it's a quiet opening then have a look to his body'," added the self-styled Cobra.

"Well done Mikkel, you took my advice well but if you come to the UK you'll be leaving that black belt with me."
