If this fight doesn't go the distance, Froch has more chance to be the winner than Mikkel. I believe Carl wins this one by unanimous decision though.

I think Froch would stop Kessler this time, Froch has looked better since his loss to Ward, Kessler has gotten steadily worse

Unfortunately (for Kessler) if it's close I can't see Kessler winning if it's in the UK.

if the fight is in England i would go for Froch by close decision. Kessler has probably slipped a little of late

I think Froch has improved since they faught, where as on the other hand Kessler has steadily declined. Froch wins this one eitherway.

I like Kessler in this one.. Remember that his fight against Froch was his first fight with a new coach, and he had to take a break after the fight due to eye injury..
Even the past prime Kessler should edge Froch on workrate and accuracy..

I think people are fooled a bit by Froch beating a boiled down LHW with no SMW pedigree.
if Kessler is back near to his best, which he hasnt been for a while, I would pick Kessler by clear decision. This version of Kessler who beat Froch in a war, will be a tough fight for either.
If Kesslers site is OK then I think Kessler may shade it, though wouldnt want to bet either way

In what way has Kessler declined?
Stamina? Condition? work rate? chin? defence? punches?

Tell us...

Regarding your question everything apart from conditioning. Just out of curiousity, did you even watch any of his last few fights since the Ward loss?

Froch has a bad back problem in the Kessler fight which mean't his training was not as intense as he would have liked, his preperation was all over the place and he was no where near his best that night. But Froch took his defeat like a man and instead of making excuses wants put things right by beating Kessler in a rematch - which a fully fit, properly prepared Froch will do.

Froch wins by stoppage.

He is just getting better and better.

I had the fight 115-113 for Kessler. However, Froch has improved immensely since then. I think his timing is top notch now and he could really hurt Kessler this time round. Lets be honest, his power shots are surely going to do some damage to Kessler's eye.

Kessler was hurt and down in the Green fight, if Carl was in Green's place that night he could have closed the show in the first round.
