Back in 2010, in Denmark, Kessler won a twelve round decision over Froch in a classic battle of fighting spirits and power punches. Kessler is now very interested in another fight with the Nottingham boxer.
"You could not fail to be impressed by the way Froch boxed and he was a different fighter to the one which lost to Andre Ward earlier this year. I think you could say his display was just about punch perfect. He landed with the majority of his big shots and his accuracy was excellent," Kessler told Daily Express.
"I have nothing but respect for Froch and I think the feeling is mutual. We fought each other in the ring, it was a great fight and I won. I am sure Froch thinks he will beat me next time and I hope there is a next time as I will show him again that I am the better fighter.
