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.”

Carl Froch vs. Mikkel Kessler on May 25 is live on Sky Sports HD Box Office in ‘Warriors’ Call’ in association with Betfair. Visit skysports.com/froch or call 08442 410888 for booking information.

I fully expect Kessler to silence Froch now,I did before but now I feel certai Froch is too hyped and as we've seen before when he's losing he does t listen to his trainer.

[QUOTE=PunchyPotorff;13409272]One thing I've never been a fan of with British fans are all those horns going off all fight long. If I were in the ring trying to concentrate on the job at hand, that noise would really get me…
