TARK

For 2 of your most illustrious countrymen to go spar for the enemy, to help him defeat you, could be a psychically damaging blow. It’s really not very nice. Kessler made a smart move because Froch has been disparaging these two guys, and they were glad to help him. Froch has to be more of a gentleman so people don’t hold such massive grudges against him. Calzaghe hates his guts. He’s not the world’s top super middleweight so there’s nothing to get so big headed about. But I’m sure he will gloat after he beats Kessler. That’s just Carl. If he loses he’ll be very bitter—rather than learning a lesson.

I’m a fan of both, but Froch is dreaming if he thinks he won’t be limited to single shots and one-two shots against Kessler. He can count his combination shots all he wants watching the video against Bute, but he’ll get sparked if he tries that this weekend. It’ll be pretty much a carbon copy of the first fight if Froch can survive getting stopped, he may be a little over-confident after the Bute win.

I think Froch is absolutely right in calling them out. If this has happened in Puerto Rico, lets say a young prospect went to spar with Margarito when he was preparing for Cotto, he would have had to stay in México. Could you imagine Beckam helping out Argentina before a game with England?

If anything sparring against kessler made them realise they’re not quite ready for the bigtime yet

you nailed it at the end. this is nothing more that froch building hype for the future. its the same reason he was dismissing groves in that i/v. how many times do we see it happen where a fighter dis’ an opponent as being not in their league and then fights them 6mths later. no doubt froch plans to fight groves after Kessler to cash in on the all England thing before rematching ward and getting another loss

Ward needs a PPV fight.

Calzaghe v Kessler was a bigger fight, that was a stadium fight with 50,000 attendance, that wasn’t PPV.

Froch fights anywhere because he has to. He isn’t even second best in his division. He would never leave his hometown if he had a choice. He likes the Dirrell type decisions. Wasn’t he crying after the Kessler fight about the outcome had it been in Nottingham?

I like Groves and Cleverly. The Cobra is on another level and that’s never gonna change, these guys are great fighters but not World Class. Froch for all his bragging has really went after all the best. I put him behind JOE, but everyone rates below JOE.

How many pay per views will this get? not as bigger a market as the USA ppv, and it’s only £14.95 compared to $69.95, I would guess at 150,000, not sure, I think that is a good question.

Froch is acting like a baby. Kessler is a very good fighter and if other fighters want to be his sparring partner then let them. It is a good learning experience for them.

I think Kessler is a brit on his mom’s side. Get your mum some dental work Mikkel! Thwm and the irish run from dentist.

I read somewhere that Froch had sparred some US fighters in preparation for Ward or Taylor, or perhaps even both. So he doesn’t have a problem not caring about nationality when it suits him. I’ve no doubt he would spar with US fighters to prepare for Hopkins too.

Maybe they really think Froch will lose…they can say what they think,even Magee said Froch will lose.But it does seem strange about being so vocal about it…and where is Froch support from his brothers in arms..lol.Anyway good-luck Froch a real warrior..who will fight anyone anywhere!!!

Froch is a pathetic unprofessional crybaby. Who was the main sparring partner for Bellew when he faced Cleverly – yes it was dear Carl “The Hypocrite” Froch. Carl may be in his 30s now but he still hasn’t grown up.

i have to admit i was surprised when i read that they had gone over to spa kessler… i did leave a little bit of a bad taste in my mouth… especially cleverly.. grooves … hes not at the elite level yet, hes not so important…

Why shouldn’t Groves or Cleverly spar with Kessler? This ‘British’ stuff is rubbish.

I think Froch will win a disputed SD.

the whiney crybaby is going to lose even worse this time.
