Why will Froch win? Because Froch is on his way to his prime, and Kessler is on his way to retirement..

Why did Kessler win the last fight? Because Froch wasnt there yet.. Now he is..

Like Falcao face some weeks ago!

Can't say that Kessler is not the same fighter anymore.
In his last fight he KO'd Green in 4 rounds. (under 10 minutes)
Has anyone including Ward and Miranda done that before? NO!
Yes Glen did get him but Green was standing when the ref. called it off.

Then a lot thinks Kessler is weak now he has been on the floor.
a lot of champs like Ali,Ward, SRL, Calzaghe and ODLH have been down.

In the first fight Carl said after 6 rounds: "He is killing me to the body!".
He will say it again in the second fight.
Froch was also cut in the first fight remember...
First the nose and then over the left eye.

I see Kessler counter more in this one and it will do more damage on Froch then the first fight.

Han kommer helt sikkert ikke til at stoppe Froch. Fra Kesslers synspunkt, så synes jeg ikke en Froch rematch giver mening, fordi han allerede slog ham første gang ( Kommer endda fra en diehard Froch fan) Kesslers timing var elendig mod Froch, men Froch var så doven og arrogant det helt sindssygt. Froch kommer til at være mere aggresiv og komme fremad, for at undgå kontrastød vil Froch slå flere slag ad gang modsætning til sidste gang. Jeg tror det kommer an på hvem der har centerringen og om Kessler formå at ramme ham i en kontra.

^^Kessler with full version will defiantly better, but honestly that's nothing compared to how Froch has matured in every aspect of the game since the last time, he was so arrogant and lazy and was so vulnerable. This time he will throws combinations, making it hard for Kessler to counter him.

Froch UD, especially if it's in Nottingham.

Their first fight was razor close in Denmark and even if you don't think Kessler has slipped, there's no way you can think he's gotten better. He's had a couple layoffs and injury issues, and in general that's kind of worked against Kessler to shorten his career IMO, he just looks like an old 32. Also, I don't think it helps that he hasn't fought at a high level since the Froch fight.

IMO Kessler HAS slipped and Froch has gotten a little bit better. I think Kessler's chin sees him through the fight, but winds up on the wrong side of the decision.

Froch lost the first cause he was inactive during the middle rounds. I think he would win a rematch on points.

Allan Green and Yusaf Mack are basically the same situation. They're 2 never champions who have been blown away and man-handled every time they've taken a step up (including against non champions like Andrade and Miranda).

Should Froch fans be giddy that Froch KO'd Mack in less than 9 minutes? Something no one has done before including guys with gaudy KO ratios in Andrade, Berrio, and Cloud?

Hardly anything to get amped about. But it does concern me that Kessler managed to see the canvas against Green.

I have to promote my man here so don't spoil it.
A lot is overrating Froch right now and Underrating Kessler.

If Kesslers site is OK then I think Kessler may shade it, though wouldnt want to bet either way
I don't think people are fooled by the Yusaf Mack fight. That's a fight that everyone expected Froch to win by KO, so it was pretty much impossible for Froch to exceedingly impress.

I think most people are just banking on Kessler being on the decline and Froch not being on the decline.

Would've voted draw if an option.

A true toss-up right now.

Kessler hasn't seemed to continue the regression he was carrying into the S6, and may have even returned to his form prior to Perdomo by reallocating his focus from old faded strengths to newfound ones.

Froch meanwhile has improved steadily.

Slight edge to Froch if anybody, especially in Nottingham.

What are some of the new found strengths? I liked his body work in the Froch fight, but I don't seem to remember him carrying it into Bouadhla. What were some of the other strengths you noticed?
