Stevenson vs. Oosthuizen on March 2 For Froch's Belt?

By Luke Furman

The IBF's super middleweight situation is still unresolved. Carl Froch has a mandatory defense due to Adonis Stevenson (19-1, 16KOs). Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn, is trying to reach an agreement with Sauerland Event for a rematch with WBA "regular" champion Mikkel Kessler.

The IBF would likely approve a unification between Froch and Kessler. If a deal is not reached, or the IBF rejects the exception request, Froch would be forced to face Stevenson or vacate his title.

If the title is vacated, promoters Yvon Michel [for Stevenson] and Rodney Berman of South Africa are willing to make a match, with Froch's vacant title at stake, between Stevenson and IBO champ Thomas Oosthuizen (21-0-1, 13KOs). The fight would happen on an HBO televised date of March 2nd in Connecticut. Oosthuizen is said to be returning on the March date, with or without Stevenson.

Everyone involved is waiting for the outcome of the Froch-Kessler negotiations.

Stevenson-Oosthuizen is actually a good fight to determine who's a good #1 contender for the winner of Froch-Kessler, so I wouldn't mind seeing it come off.

oosthuizen beats them all: Kessler, Froch, Stevenson....they should stay away from him if they value their records.

This is all talk. The IBF will allow the unification with Kessler.

comment by Clegg, on 12-31-2012
As neither has earned a shot yet, they should be facing off for the mandatory position rather than Stevenson getting it just for beating Donovan George.

and the added advantage is that if Kessler/Froch winner holds IBF/WBA then winner rematching Ward who holds WBC/WBA "Super"/Ring/Lineal makes it for 'all the marbles'. except for Abraham and that poxy stooges belt that the chief sponsor Warren will soon have his hands on via Groves.
