Froch Pleads With Fans To Give Kessler Weigh-In Hell
Carl Froch has issued a war cry to his fans to create a carnival atmosphere at the public weigh-in for the his blockbuster rematch with Mikkel Kessler on Saturday night at the O2 Arena live on Sky Sports Box Office in ‘Warriors’ Call’ in association with Betfair.
Froch has some strong words for Kessler at yesterday’s press conference at the O2, and when the pair step on the scales in the London Piazza area of the stunning venue, The Cobra will stare into The Viking Warrior’s for the last time before they lock horns in the most highly anticipated fight of the year.
Kessler won yesterday’s coin toss and will walk to the ring second for the fight, and Froch says that the weigh-in will show Mikkel what he can expect when they get down to business on Saturday night.
“My weigh-ins are always hostile events for the guy in the other corner, and I hope tomorrow’s is no different,” said Froch. “I want the fans to come down and give Mikkel a taste of the wall of noise that will greet him when he steps in the ring on Saturday.
“I’m glad Kessler will walk first. I can get into the Arena, soak up the atmosphere from the biggest crowd either of us has performed in front of and he’ll be back stage listening to the Froch Army in full voice. I wouldn’t want to have to walk into that with my opponent standing there, soaking it up and feeling ten feet tall and invincible.”
