Default Re: can kessler stop froch?

After listening to froch on ringside saying neither will hold, slip or slide (stupid in my oppinion). Then either could get knocked out if they let their pride get the better of them

I only hope rob mcraken can get frochs head in the right place.the all guns blazing aproach has worked well of late,i'd like to see a busy froch from the start,but being sensible at the same time.hope cuts dont come into play either from heads ,and if both men are over eager this is possible.

Froch has got mileage, despite his chin I fear he'll start showing it anytime soon. But not so far, and this is a real 50/50 all-action fight, anything could happen and I reckon whoever has their hand raised at the end will have deserved it. I'm going too, can't wait

Possibly to the body.

Froch was hurt to the body in the first fight, it's what won Kessler the fight.

Totally disagree.

Kesslers career was on the line in the first fight, it was a ***** to the wall performance, as urgent as you will ever see kessler, and it was that urgency that won him the fight against an unbeaten froch who still arrogantly believed he could walk through anyone he fough .

I don't see kessler summoning the same level of urgency, and froch now knows if he doesn't get it 100% right, this guy can beat him.

In essence, I think it's kessler who's facing the better version of froch, and I think it took 100% of him to just barely beat a 70% version of froch

He staggered Froch twice in the first fight.

I think Kessler's best chance is to go to the body however I'd like to see how Froch would react to the left hook punch he KO'd Green with...

Got to love this myth about Froch being distinctly under his best in the first fight, perpetuated by Froch's drivel about the volcano affecting his preparations. Froch talks like he flew into Australia on a Cessna. Flying to Denmark takes a few hours sitting in a comfy private jet. It's genuinely pathetic he keeps spouting that nonsense and even more pathetic when people lap it up.

Good friends are Mikkel and Carl. They speak often on the phone. Men made from the same cloth.

i dont think kessler could stop froch, i do think froch will stop kessler though this time, i not watched the first fight since the fight but i seem to remember Kessler looking like he was losing interest in the fight and sort of knowing he was going to be beat, then Froch started ****ing about like he does sometimes and Kessler caught him and rocked him badly and gave him the confidence to win,

I don't buy into the ash cloud excuse but I do believe he's a better fighter now

Back then he had 3 title fights, now he has 8, that's a lot more experience at elite level, kessler hasn't fought a world class opponent in 3 years

Kess has the power to hurt Froch, but i dont see a stoppage. i think Kessler again, wins a fair pts decision.
