Boxing: Froch sets his sights on Kessler
Saturday 07 July 2012
Carl Froch only has eyes for old rival Mikkel Kessler as he maps out his fighting future. The three-times world champion will return to action against a leading contender in November before facing Lucian Bute in a rematch in Montreal in March 2013.
However, the Nottingham boxer, who turned 35 this week, said yesterday: "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. That's something I want to rectify and it's also a big 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.
"If it makes more sense to have it at [Nottingham Forest's] City Ground, bring Kessler over here, that would be a massive occasion."
