By Luke Furman

WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler (46-2, 35KOs) would love to give Carl Froch (30-2, 22KOs), the IBF's champion, a well deserved rematch in 2013. In 2010, Kessler won a twelve round decision over Froch in the Super Six tournament.

Kessler remembers how he lost his first fight as a pro to Joe Calzaghe in 2007 and he was never given the opportunity to avenge that defeat. He wants to give Froch the opportunity to avenge his.

Froch, since the five round destruction of Lucian Bute, has been calling for a rematch and wants Kessler to take the fight in Nottingham. Their 2010 encounter took place in Kessler's home of Denmark.

"I can call him out too. He can come [ to Denmark]...he knows. I think that he needs to get the chance to have the rematch. I never got the rematch with Calzaghe, so of course he can have the rematch," Kessler said.

Kessler has always struck me as having great heart but the downside of this is that he can be superthick as well. He just seems a bit simple in the ring - if his plan A develops a hole, he rarely has a decent backup plan. Whereas Calzaghe had his superfitness and high punch rate/low hit rate to f...

[QUOTE=Clint650]Calzaghe was whooping on Kessler after round 5. Kessler couldn't keep up with the pace, and couldn't hurt Joe with anything. You could see it in his face inbetween rounds, he was slowly giving up. Meanwhile Joe looked as fresh in the 11th round as he did in the first. There are a ...

[QUOTE=DreamFighter]tbh, if Kessler broke his hand going into the Calzaghe fight he shouldnt have got in the ring at all. So blame himself. The reason why he lost, to me, was that he wasnt physically fit enough to last the distance on the night. He was gassing in round 6, if I recall right, de...
