I haven't been overly impressed with any of his comeback fights since his surgery. He looks a little slower, a little more sluggish & flat footed. It's all a bit weak and flimsy for me. He's ready to fall I fancy

I wouldn't be surprised if Froch stops him.

Thoughts?
Been saying this for years. Kessler's been on a slow declined for aaaages. The best of him was left behind when Ward head-butted the shit out of him, had only one fight per year between 2010-11, has a war with Froch with only one decent-operating eye, has surgery on it, and he's looked even more robotic/sluggish since he's returned.

Meanwhile Froch has been slowly improving with each fight and not shown any signs of softening up. Kessler's an old, battle-worn horse and Froch is relishing the prospect of having a scrap with him. He knows he's there for the taking. Froch by late TKO.
