Hearn on Froch's Options: Kessler III, Hopkins, Ward

By Luke Furman

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom says IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (31-2, 22KOs) is booming with options for the future.

One of the big options is a trilogy fight with Danish star Mikkel Kessler. The two boxers have now split fights, with Kessler winning a decision in 2010 and Froch getting revenge on Saturday night with his own decision win.

Another possible fight is IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins, who wants to face Froch before the end of the year. Hopkins defends his title against mandatory challenger Karo Murat on July 13th.

And the biggest prize of them all, the recognized super middleweight king Andre Ward, who defeated Froch in 2011 by decision in the final bout of the Super Six tournament. Making that rematch could be tough because of the location. Both Froch and Hearn refuse the option of going to the United States and want Ward in America.

"We're going to relax and in the next few weeks we're going to look at the future. A lot of people calling for Froch-Kessler III, obviously that would be a huge fight. Bernard Hopkins keeps calling out and Andre Ward wants the fight with Carl Froch - of course he does because Carl Froch is the money right now in the super middleweight division," Hearn said.

Froch would pummel that Dirrell dude. Does he even fight anymore? I want the Kessler III fight. Kess deserves it

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;13419241]If Dirrell came back to the UK Froch would probably have the fight in a smaller ring and just pummel the guy.[/QUOTE] Firstly, Dirrell has to "come back" into the sport itself -- which I doubt. But if,…
