Boxing: Carl Froch-Mikkel Kessler rematch agreed
Tuesday 15 January 2013
Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler will meet in "one of the biggest fights in world boxing" this year after agreeing an explosive rematch on British soil.
Nottingham IBF super-middleweight champion Froch suffered a contentious defeat against Kessler in a classic in Denmark in 2010. He has always craved revenge and is likely to get his chance in London, possibly at the O2 Arena on 25 May.
"It's on – the biggest fight that can be made in British boxing," said promoter Eddie Hearn. "The first was an epic battle and Froch-Kessler II will be one for the ages."
