Froch: Ward is a Horrible Fight, Rather Face Kessler

Carl Froch says he would be happy to make it a trilogy of fights against Mikkel Kessler - but he's not so sure his rival is keen to do it all again.

Froch evened the scores against the Dane, who was the first man to ever get the better of the Nottingham fighter in the professional ranks, with a unanimous points triumph at the O2 Arena last Saturday.

'The Cobra' feels he's four more major fights in him before he hangs up his gloves - and a third instalment against Kessler could be one of those.

Froch also wants a chance at redemption against Andre Ward, the only other man to beat him, even if the American is a "spoiler" in the ring.

"If Mikkel Kessler and I fought again it would be a similar fight - a 50-50 fight that could go either way," he said in an interview on Sky Sports News HD.

"I'd like to think I'd win it again if we had a rematch but you just never know. It's one each now, so maybe the decider is on the horizon.

"Everyone who came to that fight wants to see it again, while the people who weren't there feel like they've missed out, so they'd come back for a third one.

"I'm not sure if Mikkel Kessler wants to come back for a third one, but his style of fighting and my style of fighting are made for a great fight.

"I'd rather fight someone like him than Andre Ward, because Andre Ward is a spoiler and a 'messer', he tricks his way through a fight and gets the win. It's not very entertaining and it's a horrible fight to be involved in.

"With Mikkel Kessler I know I'm going to get someone who is going to turn up in front of me and try and win and try and give me a fight. That's the short of fight I'd like to be involved in."

Ward has said he would face Froch again, but is keen for the Brit to travel across to American soil for the rematch of their 2011 bout that the former won on points.

"He's got a bit big for his boots recently - he's calling all the shots," Froch said Ward. "He's got to realise I'm WBA and IBF champion, if he wants the titles then come and win them off me.

"The rematch is the only realistic one for me to secure my legacy, because he's the only other one to have a win over me."

Froch can't beat Ward and he knows it -- would risk getting punished and probably stopped by a more aggressive, determined and angry Ward -- and who wants to see another Froch-Kessler fight? -- I mean, we're not talking Ali/Frazier…

What's amazing to me is that Froch has a greater resume than Ward. Who'd have thunk?!

[QUOTE=Wenger Is God;13438472]He performed pretty well since he knocked him spark out. Oh and Taylor did not win 11.5 rounds which was my point before you butted in.[/QUOTE] "If Taylor stayed on his feet he'd have won" Well guess what?…
