Kessler: I Warned Carl Froch of Harassment in America!

Danish three time super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler will be ringside later tonight at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, as he watches the Super Six final between Andre Ward of America and Carl Froch of England. He'll be rooting for the Englishman.

For Kessler, losing to Ward in the first stage of the Super Six is still a sore point for the boxer. He wasn't happy with the way he was treated by the American officials and he spoke to Froch to prepare the British boxer for similar incidents of harassment. Kessler won a close decision over Froch in the second stage of the Super Six.

"I've spoken to Carl several times since we met in the ring. In fact, I have just spoken to him. I pick him to win, but you have to be concerned as to how he'll be treated. By the looks of it they treated him fairly so far. The presser went along nicely," Kessler told Danish press.

Kessler had advised Froch to get every agreement in writing and he vividly remembers how he was treated before his fight with Ward:

"I told Froch about all of the little things that stressed me. Just as I had my final [pre-fight] pee, they told me to do a doping-test. In order to do that, I had to drink two liters of water. Not good when you are standing in the dressingroom. And when the final wraps were put on my hands, Ward's trainer said I had to have them re-wrapped. They should have said that earlier," Kesser said.

The boxer added - "Then they said I should get ready to go to the ring in 5 minutes and I started to hit the pads. Then they said '10 more minutes'. That continued for 45 minutes. They wanted to stress me out. It was pure harassment."

[QUOTE=Freedom.]You think it's okay for American referees to be crooked, just not referees in other countries, right?[/QUOTE] Your disdain for blacks, Jews and Americans has been obvious for years. The fact you make such transparent claims with no proof though is humorous. :fing02:

Abraham was a flagrant foul. Terry Norris had 3 DQ losses for the same thing in his career and could have had more (including Leonard). Ward's are hardly unintentional but they are smart and pretty well accepted tactics hard to call in the flow of a fight. Froch earned a narrow win over ...

[QUOTE=Grand Champ]Are you freaking kidding me? This is the biased that disgust me. What happened after Dirrell was done faking his reaction? Nothing. He won the fight and danced the night away ;) What happened after Ward-Kessler got stopped on headbutts: Kessler had to have eye-operation...

[QUOTE=Check]Comparing what Abraham did to some headbutts or a throw down is absurd. Other than that, this is boxing and rough tactics will always be part of the game. Got no problem with hitting off the break, behind the head, or pushing an opponent around. What Abraham did is far beyond that th...

[QUOTE=Grand Champ]I'm not talking about the the fact that Froch ''won'' I'm talking about the manner in which he won. I'm not sure if you were present here (NSB) during Froch-Dirrell, our lovely americans whined so hard that Froch got rough with Dirrell . Froch even threw Dirrell if I ain't mist...
