Default Winner of Froch/Kessler rematch Ward

I'd like to see the winner of these 2 get another crack at Ward
in Las Vegas. i'd still favor Ward to win, but without the hoopla
and tough schedule of the super 6 and the fact that both men
have improved. Froch getting more seasoning and Kessler learning
new skills under a better trainer and returning to form, I think
they would have a better chance at a competitve contest w/
The Champ. Thoughts?

I don't see how Kessler and Froch have improved since they were very soundly beaten by Ward. Ward on the other hand looks virtually untouchable and hasn't lost a step.

I just watched kessler/magee and froch/mack and while there opponents
were b level (mack at this point more like C level) I saw some things
that say otherwise(especially with Kessler) Unless ward wants to beat
an exposed Bute, i don't see another fight at '68. Do you?

Well, Ward has practically cleaned out his division and didn't look remotely touchable in the process, so no, I don't see any appealing match ups. However, judging from last weekend's broadcast, I could see HBO trying to stage a clash between him and Golovkin which I'd like to see. If that doesn't happen, Ward should probably move up but LHW is pretty dire at the moment.

I don't like a Ward/GGG matchup honestly. Golo isn't proven like
Froch and Kessler are. i'd like a Ward/Kovalev matchup after 2
more fights for the russian. He has the style to give Ward much
danger. Call me crazy but I see it. Shumenov too because he's
so ****ing strong and could KO Ward clean if he lands.

Kesslers really hates Ward and wants to prove to the world he can KO the f..cker... This is the fight I want to see next at a neutral venue! Kessler needs to beat Froch first ofcourse...

adonis stevensons next fight is for the interm ibf title. the winner of froch vs kessler will have to fight stevenson within 3 months or stevenson gets the full belt.

for the record I think unless there is a bs decesion Kessler wins again.

I disagree.

I can just as well see Froch winning.

For me it is a 50-50 fight. With an edge to Froch. Not because it will be a bull-**** decision but because fighting at home gives a psychological edge.

But I can also see Kessler being better and more precise than last time and winning a similar UD as last time.

Ward would still most likely beat both, even after he recovers from that shoulder injury

I don't think he hates him.

But he certainly has no respect for the way he won last time with almost 100 initiated clinches. Outside of Oakland that would admittedly have led to a definite disqualification.

Froch yes. Because they fought and Ward won fair and square.

Against Kessler - who knows? If they fight in a neutral place and get a normal referee who does not allow excessive clinching and headbutting, then Ward would have to fight differently to win. Can he? Perhaps.

I totally agree.
Ward was so scared facing Kessler that he had his back covered.
Kessler deserves a rematch after that ugly fight!
But Ward has no ***** and will never face Kessler again.

"The better man won on the night"-Mikkel Kessler on his fight against Ward.

Seems he has some respect for Ward
