Although Mikkel Kessler admits Carl Froch was his toughest fight to date, the Danish boxing hero said he hopes to Froch out this time when the pair clash in a rematch at the 02 Arena on May 25.
"I will try to knock him out this time,” Kessler told Sky Sports. “It was a hard fight we had last time. I wanted to give him the chance to fight me again. I never got the rematch against Calzaghe(Joe), so now I’m here.
"There’s been some very difficult fights but that was the toughest, most physical fight I’ve been in."
Kessler is also pleased that Froch has finally admitted that he lost the first fight fair and square
"I got Carl to admit today he lost the first fight fair and square," added Kessler. "If I lose on the 25th, I will admit it. Don’t be like that, be a man and admit it. Now he has but he’s going to lose again.
