Default Nice bit of insight from Camp Froch

Hi All - just wanted to share an email I received off a mate of mine who does a lot of work with Rob McCracken, helping to support Amateur boxing. Nothing outrageous but a nice little insight from a reliable source.

"I was with Froch yesterday and he looks in great nick. Kessler is a great fighter and it will be difficult in Denmark, but Carl and Rob think he is getting on a bit - may just be about to go over the hill. They reckon he will start to tire in the second half of the fight once he sees that Froch can hang around for all 12.
I am not telling you what to put your money on but a stoppage in the later rounds seems to be the way they see it going."

Certainly on the cards. This fight could go any number of ways though. I wouldn't rule out any outcome. Either has the power to stop the other, either could find ways to win a decision though its obviously tougher for Carl away from home. Even a draw

You come to a definitive conclusion on how you think it'll go yet?

Froch has matured and is always in good shape. He issues are technical.

Honestly, no. But I will do before the fight.

I'm confident I could pick the right outcome if given 5 chances. Late stoppage Froch, late stoppage Kessler, points Froch, points Kessler, draw.

;O)

I don't think it's wise to go into the fight hoping someone will gas in the later rounds, unless its Jermain Taylor.

As far as I'm aware Kessler has never shown an inability to do 12 so it is quite surprising. Or mind games.

Late stoppage either way, points either way and draw?

My point was this: in this fight I give all 4 outcomes an even enough chance, whereas many fights its easy to rule out the near impossibles.

However obviously I will make a concrete pick on fight week I need to watch Kessler recently and try to imagine him in this matchup, which is not that easy. I've seen enough out of Froch to know what he'll bring to this matchup.

Just wait for it old man, I'm usually almost always correct.

Its pretty interesting looking at the odds for this fight. Kessler was a very strong favorite, but the closer we are getting to the fight, the closer the odds are getting to evens. I think Kessler will start better than Froch, but Froch's pressure will get to Kessler as the fight progresses leading to him losing confidence and going into his shell. Eventual result will be either a pretty wide UD as Froch sweeps the later rounds or potentially even a corner stoppage from Kessler's team.

Regardless, its a fight Im very much looking forward to watching.
