During his open workout, the "Viking Warrior" Mikkel Kessler (46-2, 35KOs) told reporters, once again, that he will retire from the sport if he loses the upcoming rematch with Carl Froch (30-2, 22KOs). The two fighters will go for the IBF/WBA super middleweight titles on May 25th at the O2 Arena in London.

Kessler, 34-years-old, won a tough twelve round decision over Froch in 2010, but the Danish star has been bothered by numerous injruies over the last couple of years.

"If I lose this fight, I will definitely stop my career. I have made up my mind that if I lose, then I'm done with boxing. I've been boxing for pretty much all my life, but I also feel that I have come to a point where I would like to try some other things of. Therefore I will not continue if I lose. But if I win, I still have the courage to keep chasing the big fights. I really want to stress that I do not believe that I'm going to loss. Training has been great and I have never felt this strong," Kessler said.

[QUOTE=jri9d0]Damn Mikkel, you questioning your ability to win already?[/QUOTE] My thoughts as well. Mikkel has obviously pondered his post-boxing life a little too much. Froch by mid-rounds TKO (Mikkel quits on his stool).

[QUOTE=Ringlife]Carl is one of my favorites but I just got this feeling Kessler is going to land that monster left hook in England.[/QUOTE] He'll land it but froch can take it

[QUOTE=LacedUp]Guys calm down. I speak to the guy regularly, and I can assure you he's very very confident. And so is Montoya. You will see something special on may 25th.[/QUOTE] I speak with the war mongering obama on a regular basis too
