Default Who does better in a Ward rematch, Froch or Kessler?

At least one of them will likely fight Ward again soon, but I really dont see either fight going much different, regardless where the fight takes place.

If I'd give anyone an edge I would say its Kessler could possibly do a little better, as he is the better boxer of the 2, but Ward's just too good for both

Yeahh I'd probably say Kessler...can't see him beating Ward but Froch's all-action style is tailor-made for Andre, while Mikkel is far more conventional and will stand a better chance. Froch just never got going against Ward, and with his style I doubt he ever could do. If Kessler is more comfortable at home or a neutral venue and gets his jab and one-twos going, he'd do better than last time I think.

Whoever wins a fight between the two, which is a fight that should happen before either one gets a tilt at Ward.

Exactly. Ward will smother him or just get out the way every time, Froch would spend all night looking to build an attack

Agreed. I love Froch, I'm a huge fan, I just don't agree with people who think he's been revitalised after beating Bute. He'll be looking for a shot that won't come, and tire himself out with lopping hooks and uppercuts that Andre will easily evade as he peppers Carl with jabs leading to another wide UD. I think Carl gets frustrated if he hasn't hurt his opponent after a few rounds, and leads himself massively open.

Kessler.He is a far more skilled boxer than the clumsy over rated Froch.

Nice try but not really!


The poll results after the fight was heavily in Kesslers favour, so anyone who had Froch winning that fight must be british based, a perfect example of a close but clear win for Kessler.

Neither really have much of a chance. Froch looked semi competitive in the second half of the fight against Ward, whilst Kessler got dominated all throughout. So I'd say Froch

I had it a clear win for Kessler as well, but he definitely didnt dominate

I'd say Kessler....I think he was shocked by how he got roughed up by Ward and wasn't prepared for such a dirty fight.

This time round he will at least be prepared for that kind of fight.

Froch imo will be out fought on the inside just the same and will be looking for Ward all night. Plus if Ward hadn't hurt his hand late on I think he would have been even more dominant.

So with two healthy hands I think Ward beats Froch worse....
