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

It was nothing about "winning" the weigh in -- it was about the fact that the two guys looked like lovers of some sort... It seemed hilarious to me... That's all..

[QUOTE=MDPopescu]I was just joking about Carl losing his heart... Froch is a shy guy and he's smart and softspoken, generally... I think that, during the weigh in, he wanted to wipe out that stupid image of himself going for a kill...[/QUOTE] Fair enough mate

People still putting stock into weigh-in's? No matter how many times someone 'wins' the weigh-in and then gets beat in the ring, people still think weigh-in's are remotely important? Make weight, that's all they are good for.

[QUOTE=SAJ10]I agree that Kessler looks bang up for this and Froch backs down in the man to man eyeballing, looking away, talking into his ear to break eye contact etc. It could be a phycological score to Kessler. I thought similar in the weigh-in for the first fight they had and Kessler won t...
