Froch always seems nervous on his ring walk and when he steps in the ring.
He hasn't done too bad thus far in his career.

body language months before fight > form, styles, age, venue, training camp, injuries

Ok then.......

But Kessler is a different beast. I still don't take that into consideration.
he didn't as he entered the ring mind, i wouldn't like to bet on this one regardless but I think kessler has a slight edge

this is a new angle, but i am not wrong often(if ever) and boby language is a big tell.
i remember what ali did to foreman,a fight foreman should and would have won, but ali played his sad mind games. its all about confidence, and ali knocked it out of him, in more ways than one.

if you believe you are the man you often are

I seem to remember a lot of people saying Abraham got the better of the stare down and Froch looked nervous therefore Abraham was going to KO him......

Look what happened there.

I can't see why Froch would publicly say he wanted to fight Kessler multiple times then have his promoter set the fight up if he didn't think he would win and it can't be a money issue as he would have likely been paid much more for a Bute rematch in Canada if he could draw him in.

The only giveaway for sure that a fighter is shitting his pants is when a fighter runs into the ring ala Enzo

i never said froch was shitting it, nor is he lacking confidence. i do see kessler being more confident, and in an evenly matched fight, that gives him the edge.

i see this in most sports, and i am usually right..its an opinion of mine, its not an exact science, but i get it right mostly

if you believe you are the man you often are
body language does say a lot,without doubt,but this far away from a fight,nah
and the highlighted bit makes me think you are a complete ****,so,therefore you are wrong
