The thing is though, i think kessler forced him into these errors at certain points in the fight.
It is frustrating watching him at times though, as he had kessler going at certain points, and seemed incapapble of going in for the kill like he did with taylor
Taylor was dieing on his ass in the last round so nothing was coming back. Kessler seemed about as strong as Froch, they were both tired. Kessler also invested in the body and took some steam out of Froch. As successful as Taylor's early boxing was he didn't seem to take much out of Carl and he was never the stronger guy like Kessler was.
