Froch vs. Stevenson in The Works For April, May

By Luke Furman

Adonis Stevenson got his wish. The Canadian super middleweight will reportedly get a crack at IBF champion Carl Froch this spring, according to several sources in Canada. Eddie Hearn, the promoter for Froch (30-2, 22 KOs), confirmed to journalist Nancy Audet of TVA Sports that a fight with Stevenson (19-1, 16KOs) could take place in April or May, probably in England.

Yvon Michel, promoter for Stevenson, is said to be staging a press conference on Friday to announce the match.

The IBF had ordered Froch to defend his title against Stevenson and gave both sides until January 15th to reach an agreement or a purs bid would have been scheduled.

Hearn was trying to reach a deal Sauerland Event for a unification rematch with WBA "regular" champion Mikkel Kessler of Denmark, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement, according to Hearn.

After Stevenson, Froch would face either Lucian Bute or Kessler in a rematch.

Froch vs either Kessler or Stevenson is must see TV. Carl Froch's competitive spirit is something to behold. This guy is always fighting the best. Yusaf Mack was his only soft touch in years!

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;12886303]Sounds like a negotiating tactic on Hearn's behalf; trying to bully Kessler into signing.[/QUOTE] How would that work? surely if Froch vacated he would receive less money from the Kessler deal as he would bring no belt to the table
