Carl Froch: You Are Going To See The Best of Me!

By Terence Dooley

Nottingham's Carl Froch and Denmark's Mikkel Kessler are pumped for their rematch at London's O2 Arena, with the IBF and WBA Super World titles at stake. Kessler defeated Froch by unanimous decision in Denmark in May 2010, but Froch has been in top form since losing to America's Andre Ward in December 2011, he was devastating while dispatching Lucan Bute (TKO 4) and Yusaf Mack (KO) and is confident of gaining revenge over "The Viking Warrior".

"Well you're going to see the best of Carl Froch, that's for sure," said Froch when speaking to Sky Sports News.  "When I'm at my best — and you've seen it against Lucian Bute, Jean Pascal, a lot of fighters at top level — I can mix it with the best in the world.  I've proven that time and time again."

He added: "This is a rematch against someone who's beaten me, so you can imagine how fired up I am and what I'm going to bring to that ring — it is going to electric.  And Mikkel Kessler is no mug, I'm not taking him lightly, he's a proper fighter and it is going to be one hell of a fight, a battle between two warriors."

Kessler also told Sky that he is also in prime form.  He said: "I feel good.  I feel I have a new boxing style, I've got better.  I like Carl because he wants to fight, I want to fight too, but I am ready for 12 rounds.  He's not a fighter who wants to punch and grab, he's here to fight and I'm here to fight him."

The fight will be televised live and exclusive on Sky Box Office HD from 8pm tomorrow night.

Let's see if I catch so called heat for picking Froch and he losses. I lost boxing knowledge points when I rooted for Peterson against Matthysse. I won't have any BK if Froch loses, lmao!
