Kessler: No Problem Facing Froch in England, I'm Better!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC silver light heavyweight champion Mikkel Kessler (sat ringside on Saturday night in Nottingham, and watched Carl Froch (29-2, 21KOs) issue a five round beating on previously undefeated Lucian Bute to capture the IBF's belt at 168.

Bute's promoter was recently in talks with Sauerland Event, hoping to stage a fight with Kessler for later in the year.

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.

“I would have no problem travelling to England to face Froch. He came to Denmark, so why not?”
