Mikkel Kessler: Groves Must Give Froch Hell To Win!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Mikkel "Viking Warrior" Kessler is a very interested party in Saturday's super middleweight grudge rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves, taking place before 80,000 fans at Wembley.

Kessler won a twelve round decision over Froch in 2010, but then lost a decision in their rematch last May. The Danish star also used Groves as a sparring partner for the Froch rematch. Kessler says Groves needs to follow the same game plan that he used to defeat Froch in their first meeting.

"It was a lot of punches, it was a war [for me to beat Froch]. You have to give him hell, throwing a lot of punches at Carl, a lot of combinations at him. When I see the fight number two that I lost, I put my combinations together. I hit him hard and solid. I had the best solid punches in that fight, but Carl, when you hit him once, will always come back with some punches," Kessler told Sky Sports.

"That's what Groves has got to do. He's a counter fighter and he's very fast and that's where Carl's weakness is. He needs to have the final word in the exchanges."
