Kessler: Carl Froch is Still Making The Same Mistakes

By Oscar Nielsen

When Mikkel Kessler talks about Carl Froch, he does so with some leverage as the two of them have fought before. While the English Media believes that the Nottingham Cobra has progressed in the last couple of years, the Dane sees little change. He tells Danish news agency RITZAU:

"He is making a lot of mistakes. I also think that he never changes. A lot of the stuff he is doing, is exactly the same thing he has been doing for years. Of course he has gained some experience with his fights, but essentially he is doing the same things he's always done."

Kessler and his American trainer Jimmy Montoya has crafted a plan that should ensure victory again for the viking superstar on May 25th in the UK.

"I've watched the first fight against Carl a few times, but not that much. My trainer watches it twice a day though," the Dane laughs and adds: "We're coming to London fully prepared and with a couple of surprises in store for Froch".

Kessler hopes that Carl Froch feels the pressure from the massive home crowd in London.

"I'm sure that this, being his biggest fight at home, will lead him to come flying out of his corner from the opening bell. He wants to show that he's the champion. That's just good [for me]."

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;13349839]I think this is a common misconception. Froch looked worn out against Johnson. Was outclassed against a one handed Ward, battered a shellschocked Bute who had a gimpy leg. Froch might be favoured, but that should be because of homefield.…
