Michael Buffer Says Both Froch, Kessler Have Advantages

Hall of Fame ring announcer Michael Buffer will be calling IBF Super Middleweight Champion Carl Froch and WBA Champion Mikkel Kessler into the ring for their blockbuster rematch on May 25 at the O2 Arena live on Sky Sports Box Office in ‘Warriors’ Call’ in association with Betfair.

The “Voice of Champions”, who has announced more than 500 world title fights in over 30 countries, is excited to be part of what he thinks could be the fight of the year.

“After 30 plus years of announcing some of the greatest names in boxing, I still get a thrill when another opportunity comes along to be involved with a super fight like the upcoming contest between Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler at the O2 in London on 25 May,” said Buffer.

“This year, so far, has been one of my busiest ever and while I'd love to get a weekend off, there is no way I'd miss this one. 

“We have two of the best fighters in the world with enormous fan followings that are loyal, passionate and supportive. The O2 has been sold out for months. Add to that the fact that two of the sport's top promoters (Matchroom Sport and Team Sauerland) have joined forces to present this fight at one of the world's greatest venues in one of the world's greatest cities and the net result will be an electric, red hot evening of excitement. This will be boxing's equivalent to a Rolling Stones concert and I won't be surprised if Mick Jagger and company are at ringside! 

“Both ‘The Cobra’ from Nottingham and ‘The Viking Warrior’ have been training like never before in their careers. Each looking for victory, obviously, but both want more out of this fight. For Carl it's the chance to erase the loss he suffered in Denmark three years ago. Mikkel wants that IBF belt his opponent wears. 

“For both, a win will bring a huge demand to get a rematch with still undefeated American, Andre Ward. In my opinion, there may be no difference in the tangibles of boxing with experience, chin, speed, power, conditioning and the will-to-win being so close to equal.

“Psychologically, Froch should have an edge with the crowd on fight night, this being his home turf but Kessler may have the edge with the factor of winning their first meeting.

“Focus will be the key to success when the bell rings. I know millions of fans in the UK, Denmark and around the World will be focused on the O2 Arena in London on 25 May when Mikkel Kessler meets Carl Froch in what may turn out be the fight of the year!  

“Ladies and Gentlemen; LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!”

Buffer will also chair the official pre-fight press conference on the Wednesday before the fight.
