Three years after posting the most memorable bout in the Super Six super middleweight round robin tournament, Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler are ready to do it all again.

This weekend's rematch in London features two belts at stake. Even more important for the winner is a potential shot at redemption (and lucrative payday) with divisional king Andre Ward, who will be live at ringside as part of the HBO broadcast team.

Froch (30-2, 22KO) weighed in at a trim and ready 167.9 lb. as he seeks to avenge his first career loss. Kessler (46-2, 35KO) hit the scales at a lean 166.74 lb., his second lightest weight in more than a decade.

The main event airs live on HBO in the United States (Saturday, 6PM ET) and on Sky Box Office in the United Kingdom.

Full Weights

Carl Froch, 167.9 lb. vs. Mikkel Kessler, 166.74 lb. - 12 rounds, super middleweight

George Groves, 167.4 lb. vs. Noe Gonzalez 167 lb. - 12 rounds, super middleweight

Tony Bellew, 174.5 lb. vs. Isaac Chilemba, 174.25 lb. - 12 rounds, light heavyweight

If I didn't know any better, I would've thought these guys were best friends.

Kessler looks ominously in-shape and relaxed
