Froch: If I Was Back Home, I Would Have Beaten Kessler

By Mark Vester

In a war of a fight, Mikkel Kessler (43-2, 32KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Carl Froch (26-1, 20KOs) at the MCH Messecenter in Herning, Denmark, to win the WBC super middleweight title. The scores were 117-111, 115-113, 116-112.

The fight had a lot of close rounds. Froch was feeling his emotions after the fight was over. He said the fight was close and he believes the decision would have went his way if the event was held in Nottingham, England. Froch is now going home to relax and plans to return to the gym in a few weeks to start training for the August 21 bout with Arthur Abraham, taking place in the third stage of the Super Six Boxing Classic.

Froch gave a lot of credit to Kessler in the contest.

"I feel terrible. I lost my title but I don't want to make a mockery of anything. I think if that was at home in my town, the decision would have went the other way," Froch said.

"He's a strong proud warrior. The Danish fans have been absolutely brilliant. we said from the start the match between me and Mikkel Kessler would be one for the crowd. I though the fight could have went either way."

"If I beat Abraham I'm there. I will definitely be back."

If Dirrell fought in his hometown against Froch he would have won too. Easily. Froch might have been DQ'ed. Easily. LIKE I Have been saying from the start, Froch WONT win another fight in the super six.

[QUOTE=Lorily;8185756]So, why do you think Froch himself believes he would have won at home then?[/QUOTE] It's just sour grapes. He also believes he [B]deserved [/B]to win, which is clearly rubbish. Even the UK press all scored it to Kessler, and…

[QUOTE=Wrighty;8185438]Froch can't complain, he got a home descision in his last fight so it was Kessler's turn to get a home descision. Every fighter that has fought away from home in the super six has lost. Froch to Kessler, Kessler…
