Default Froch - Kessler pre fight analysis.

Go to 2:03 .

Against Froch that would have been a combination, with all punches landing flush. Froch does not posses Andre Ward's foot, hand or reflex speed.

Kessler managed to block/avoid one or two of Ward's punches (which are fast accurate, untelegraphed), therefore Froch cannot land a single clean punch on Kessler.

Kessler wins.

Analysis over.

Kessler will certainly find Froch easier to catch.Froch cant afford for Kessler to build up a lead cos i cant see him being able to close the gap later as Kessler wont tire down the stretch.I think Kessler wins on a ud by about 3 rounds.

Kessler is coming of an absolute beat down. Whether there was headbuts or not, its a fight so who gives a ****. Kessler is coming of a humiliating loss.

now instead off stepping into a 10 round warm up or fighting a weak contender for a vacant title, he is fighting the toughest fighter in his division. Froch is the strongest fighter he has faced, the hardest puncher, and is the best fighter he has faced if you exclude his 2 losses.

the only thing in Kesslers favour going into this fight is thats its in Denmark

Kessler close ud. Too sharp imo. I think his decline in recent years has been slightly overplayed.

It looks like he's trying to punch a fly at 2:03.

No wonder Calzaghe had to start doing cocaine. His entire legacy has cullapsed under the pressure.

This fight is comically slow in comparison.

The more I think about the more I'm favouring Kessler. He's gone from being overated to underated in the last few years. To quick and will punish Froch's overeagerness.

Nah, was taking the piss. Should have used an appropriate smiley. It's one of my favourite fights of the last few years. Was a cracking atmosphere too!

I'm still undecided on a winner, but one thing I'll definitely agree on is the treatment of Kessler. He's gone from being the hype of the division to the most underrated fighter in the tournament.

Same thing will happen to Froch if/when he loses to Kessler. Untill someone else loses.

Ward is the future of boxing if his mentality towards his career remains the same.

Bet Froch is praying that faded fragile version of Kessler turns up.
