Man Kessler has definitely lost a step the last couple of years but at least he has a good chin.

Froch landed a bomb

There used to be a good long tradition that it was almost impossible to beat a Danish boxer (or most at home really internationally) at home unless you knocked him out. I could see them giving Kessler two of the first 3 probably unfairly but the last 3 has definitely been all Froch

Froch is controlling the fight so far. Very impressed. Hope Kessler decides to go to war...Then we can see some real action.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

I dont think Kessler can hurt him tbh. Im also very impressed with Froch at this point

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

I get the same sense. When Kessler is putting together combinations, Froch is slipping and blocking real well.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

I would definitely favor Froch in a war but getting Froch to throw some of those wide wilder punches might be Kessler's chance with his good straight punches. Wonder if he has it in him.

Better from Kessler. He gets that round.

6-1 in my book

Big shot from Kessler! And we got a fight!

I could see 6-2 froch or even 4-4 depending on judges.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

was Froch hurt tired? He seemed to be all instincts there in the end with some more wildness for Kessler to exploit

Quote:
Carl Froch has revealed he is carrying an injury ahead of his WBC super-middleweight fight against Dane Mikkel Kessler on Saturday.

Froch, 32, flew into Denmark on Tuesday to prepare for his second Super Six World Boxing Classic clash.

Froch told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I'm never ever 100% for any fight.

"I've had all sorts of injuries and knocks and bangs in the past. I'm not going to disclose what injuries I've got but I'm never injury-free anyway."
Pretty dumb thing to say before the fight. Setting yourself up for an excuse

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

even with that wildness he might just have won that round too. Kessler didn't do a good enough job. He looks fresher though.

Exciting fight. Anyone can legitimately get clipped at any point.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Kessler has taken some powerful shots. All in all Froch looks to be in control.

Lay it all on the line Kessler!

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Good 11th . I think Froch took Kessler's best shot without blinking.

Overall Kessler just doesn't have good answers when facing something unorthodox presenting him with angles.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)
