Kessler Praises Froch Performance/Prepared To Face Froch Again

Mikkel Kessler, one of only two men to have beaten Carl Froch has praised the Englishman for his impressive display in Lucian Bute last weekend.


Danish boxer Kessler, out-pointed Froch in an exciting battle at the Parken Stadium in Denmark back 2010, and said he is prepared to Froch again and will even come to England if he has to.


"You could not fail to be impressed by the way Froch boxed [against Bute], and he was a different fighter to the one which lost to Andre Ward earlier this year," Kessler told the Daily Express after watching Froch stop Bute inside five rounds.


"I think you could say his display was just about punch perfect. He landed with the majority of his big shots and his accuracy was excellent.


"I have nothing but respect for Froch and I think the feeling is mutual. We fought each other in the ring, it was a great fight and I won. I am sure Froch thinks he will beat me next time and I hope there is a next time as I will show him again that I am the better fighter. I would have no problem travelling to England to face Froch. He came to Denmark, so why not?"
