I think more people will be interested in the fight exactly because they've fought before, and with Froch having a revenge mission. I sincerely hope so anyway, the first fight deserved much MUCH more public profile than it got. I hope they push this one hard.

No tune-up fights, right? No possible obstacles?

The air of mystery is not really there and that's important for me. Both fighters are pretty rigid tactically so there isn't much intrigue for me in terms of how they'll adjust etc. We know how these two match up, and while it was a good fight, I never really been that desperate to see it again.

It was also a shame the way the first fight came and went without getting the exposure it deserved and I think it would've been better from a marketing sense if this was their first fight against eachother as well. Kessler is too likeable to milk much out of the revenge angle either.

Also casuals who are just starting to follow Froch since he went on Sky will be like "They fought before? Who Won?....Kessler on points? Oh....."

I know, who gives a **** about casuals, but I think it would have been better all round if this was their first meeting. Their styles were always going to make for a great fight so we didn't need the first fight to tell us that.
