This fight is going to really suffer by getting put in a so called neutral venue.

As mentioned, France would seem by far the best neutral option though.

I'd question the neutrality of anything on the continent. Sauerland would say the same about the UK too though. For both men to get a fair crack of the whip it'd probably have to be in America but that'll never happen.

When will this 'Froch has the beating of Kessler' end

Kessler had the beating of Froch. That's all that matters because it actually happened. All these could of would of could of should ofs are really ****ing annoying when McCracken was telling him he needed more and he couldn't do it.

What makes me laugh about this whole impasse is that unscrupulous judges can be bought off anywhere in the world. As if a fight abroad will suddenly solve the pervasive problems with the sport!

One of the Irish lads on here mentioned Ireland as a venue and I think that would be an awesome choice. I can't see many French people going to the fight and I think it might turn out to be pretty stale if held in France. Finland, Switzerland and Denmark are all other suitable options for a venue, but I don't think they are necessarilly the best ones. Ireland or America for me. Maybe even Canada as they always get decent numbers of fans in arenas to watch boxing there.

Ireland would be SAVAGE!

With a bit of promotion over here you'd get plenty of neutrals buying tickets for it and it would be handing enough for fans of both fighter to get here.
