Magee Feels Kessler Will Repeat and Defeat Carl Froch

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Brian Magee is picking Mikkel Kessler to defeat Carl Froch for a second time when they fight in their super middleweight unification on Saturday night. Kessler won a tough twelve round decision over Froch in 2010 in Denmark. This time Froch has home ground at the 02 Arena in London. Magee was stopped by Froch in eleven rounds in 2006 and then stopped in three by Kessler in December after a hard hook to the body.

"Kessler's fast, he's still very fast. He's a good boxer and mover," Magee told "It's his mental side too, he's good at breaking you down, looking for openings. The fight was very fast for two rounds. I found out in the first few rounds that his speed was very good."

"If you watch the Carl Froch fight back again, even in the last rounds when they are both toe-to-toe, Kessler was cool and smart enough. His boxing brain was still ticking over while Froch was just like a mad dog in a frenzy, throwing wild punches.

"He wasn't just head down and swinging and I think that is what Carl has to watch out for, because Kessler is a precise puncher. He's good to the body. It was that big right hand. It caught me right on the solar plexus, it was like he punched through me."

[QUOTE=anonymous2.0;13399009]This was the first Kessler article I've seen, why is Carl Froch dominant in Boxingscene articles and Kessler almost nonexistent? Make no mistake, I'm hyped for this fight, I'm hyped about what Carl says, but I would be over the…
