Despite Carl Froch’s commitment to facing Lucian Bute in a rematch in March, 2013, the IBF super-middleweight champion has admitted that facing Denmark’s Mikkel Kessler is his top priority.
The Great Dane out-pointed Froch in Showtime’s Super Six tournament two years ago and Froch has dreamed of revenge ever since.
Speaking to Sky Sports The Englishman from Nottingham said: "The rematch with Kessler is the fight I really want because he’s got the win against me on his record and on my record," Froch declared.
"That’s something I want to rectify and it’s also a big fight for the fans. It’s a massive fight for the fans.
"Me and Kessler gel as fighters and it makes for a really good spectacle. That’s the fight I want more than anything else, it really is."
