Kessler: I Feel Very Confident of Beating Froch in Trilogy

By Luke Furman

Former champion Mikkel Kessler was ringside on Saturday night at Wembley Stadium in London, and watched Carl Froch retain his IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight titles with an eight round knockout of British rival George Groves.

Kessler (46-3, 35KOs) has not fought since losing a twelve round decision to Froch last May. The Danish boxer is currently training for a ring return in the fall. He handed Froch his first career defeat, a twelve round decision in April of 2010 and feels ready for a trilogy battle with the Nottingham boxer.

"Congratulations to Carl Froch with the impressive eight round stoppage over George Groves. If possible, I'm more than ready to fight Carl for the decider, and I feel very confident that I will win that fight. The fight in the O2 Arena a year ago, was not one of my best. I started out slow and had the chance to stop Froch in the eleventh round, but failed. That won´t happen again," Kessler said.

"No excuses though, Carl fought brilliantly, and I can´t take anything away from him. It was close, but he won the fight. If Carl decides to retire, there´s still some potential exciting fights for me out there. Golovkin, Ward or even Chavez Jr. It´s no secret that I crave for the big fights. This will be my 50th fight and I want to make sure that the fans get the matchup they truly deserve."

I had Froch winning both fights. Don't really prefer to see this again. They were close so I wouldn't complain however.
