IBF super-middleweight champion Carl Froch insists he is at his ‘physical peak’ ahead of his rematch with Mikkel Kessler at the 02 Arena in London on May 25.
The 35 year-old was narrowly out-pointed by the classy Dane for the WBC title in April 2010 but Froch believes he is now much stronger now than he was 10years ago.
"As I’ve got older I’ve got stronger. I diarise everything. Everything’s written down and my runs are improving, the weights too," Froch told Sky Sports News. "I’m at my physical peak.
"I’m sure I’ll go over the hill at one stage, but at the minute I’m hitting everything I need to hit. Physically I’m in my prime and mentally I’m so much tougher than what I was when I was 25.
"Success breeds confidence, and I’ve had that much success I go into the ring very confident and that’s half the battle in boxing, believing in yourself. I’m 36 in July, but if the mind’s willing the body can be worked into doing whatever you want."
