Anyone who has Froch winning this fight knows nothing about scoring fights and should be embarrassed.

Kessler 115-114 with the eleventh even, in Denmark it was crazy, Kessler was missing and hitting Froch on the arms and the crowd where going wild this must have influnced the judges, I think with a better work rate and keeping his arms up Froch would have won but for me it was Kessler's night he was like a man possessed

similarly, anyone who had Kessler winning the fight by any more than 3 rounds knows nothing about scoring fights and should be embarrassed..

Kessler, though I don't think the score cards really do Froch justice.

A lot of those rounds were fairly close.

Froch won rounds 5,10, Kessler won rounds 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,11,12, some rounds were close, but I favoured Kessler because he was the aggressor, landed the more hurtful punches, showed a solid jab, took the better of the exchanges. Can't automatically award Froch close rounds because he is behind on the scorecard.

You have to remember not to react to the noises the crowd are making or to flurries of shots that are getting blocked or are missing the target.

I have no argument with the result, but the 117-111 card from one of the judges was a joke

11 to Kessler??really??

I can see the argument with giving 1-4 and 6-9 to Kessler (although I dont neccessarily agree with it), but I thought Froch clearly won rounds 5, 10 and 11

It seems there is a trend now, where every fight that goes the distance, someone claims the other guy has won. No matter how clear and straightforward the result actually is.

Kept saying that through the whole fight, everyone round us kept cheering if Kessler got near him, this has got to have impacted the judges scores.

For the record I had it level. 114-114

Kessler landed some big clean shots in the 11th.
