Gonzo where are your “Hard Facts” you mean me saying I think Peterson might outbox an Argentine fighter? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!! The only thing “Hard” about you is YOUR “Hard ON” for me and AGAINST the United States of America…. Bury the hatchett man I love Kate Middleton she is a FINE piece of ass!! Till next time doormat!

Gonzo, I see I have quite literally driven you SPASTIC LMAO!! Like I said below you completely and utterly backup EVERYTHING I say about you… I present concrete examples of your racism that you substatinate ie admitting you have called Floyd “A Babboon” and the fact that you expect ME to comb the archives for your childish posts when YOU hurl accusations left and right with NOTHING but your frustrated opinion to back them up….??? Why would I waste my time and do that when you concede you have made the comments and ONLY your desire to equivocate is in play?? Again seeing you implode and literally feeling you drool on your keyboard in RAGE is actually VERY entertaining (I don’t know why) but then again I am just gonna go with it… You have been telling me for at least a year you are going to “Kill Me” when is this going to happen? or are these MORE of your hollow threats to be taken with the SAME grain of Salt they were when you first made them…

Bitter Bitter fans… You guys just saw a good fight (repeat) for the #2 spot at SMW and you still cannot enjoy the moment and accept the clear defeats of Froch and Kessler to Ward..Face facts Froch is a CRUDE fighter who is made to order for Ward… All this politicking and scenario setting is not gonna dethrone SOG who is sitting at P4P number 2 in the world… Carl Froch is a toug is a tough guy and simultaneously a SORE loser.. Ward beat a MUCH fresher version of Kessler and did it with ease… Froch and Kessler are still pretty evenly matched, that’s why Froch immediately discussed fighting Kessler again as and dances around Ward with all these stipulations and agitation that Wards NOT forced to go the Blue Collar route and take unnecessary punches from a guy who’s easy to defend against… I think they will likely fight again but I doubt Froch finishes the bout, Wards gotten meaner as evidenced by him smashing a top notch prime fighter like Dawson who dealt with Adamek… Froch is on the path to retirement of he fights Ward again….And more whining from he and his excuse prone constituency… Everyone knows he got UDed by Ward sporting a BAD hand…

The Truth

PrimaCarnero — A prime example of an ignorant and arrogant British filth who lives in an impenetrable bubble of grand delusions, believing that the whole world didn’t despise the British Empire and doesn’t hate them to this very day. In his distorted little mind, the world is a much better place as a result of British colonialism..LOL. The biggest lie in human history. And the Irish love the British and they get along famously..LMAO. What a joke! The U.S. was founded by Native Americans; it was later occupied and colonized by British turncoats who hated that god forsaken place and couldn’t wait to get away. So they fled in droves. Those British colonialists and their offspring massacred Native Indians by the tens of thousands and stole their land. Most of the people in the U.S. are certainly NOT of British decent, you IDIOT! And just because people in those African & Caribbean former colonies don’t try to kill you when they find out your British, doesn’t mean they don’t secretly HATE you. Pure truth and facts….

PrimaCarnero

PS; Im part Irish, and can tell u straight, the Irish and Brits get on great, which is why so many Irish live over there! I Lived all over Africa too; Zambia, Malawi, S Africa, Botswana, the Brits arent hated there, nor in Europe or Canada, Australia, nor the Mid East, its the U S of A thats hated in the Mideast sad to say. Same with Caribbean, loads of ‘em have gone to live in Britain and are proud loyal Brits, same with Indians and Hong Kong Chinese and so forth. Only people who really dont like Brits are some from USA because the Brits gave birth to the USA, Settled and founded it, its culture, language, laws, and most of its people etc.. all from Britain. Its a son of Britain, sometimes sons want to ouddo their dads or rebel.

The Truth

Of course the French hate the British, but so do the Irish, Argentinians, Hondurans, Brazilians, Venezuelans, E. Indians, Chinese, Burmese, Egyptians, Nigerians, Kenyans, Somalis, Sudanese, South Africans, Zimbabweans, Palestinians, Iraqis, Iranians, Afghans, Kuwaitis. Not to mention the peoples of Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Aden (the entire Islamic world for that matter), Malaysia, Singapore,
Papau New Guinea, Fiji, Borneo, Brunei, the Bahamas, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Caymen Islands, Montserrat, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago, Dominica, Guyana, Uganda, The Gold Coast, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Swaziland, Tanzania and the Falkland Islands.

This long list does not include, of course, the so called “allies” and other European nations who secretly and deeply hate the British as well: Germans, Dutch, Danish, Italians, Swiss, Spanish, Portuguese, Russians (including the former Soviet countries), Swedish, Norwegians, and even the Canadians and Americans. List also doesn’t include the remaining countries of the world, except Israel, who hate Brits because it’s the moral, normal and socially acceptable, standard way of thinking. Sorry my limey foes, but this is what happens when your country spends hundreds of years conquering, butchering, colonizing, territorializing and displacing millions of people; re-designing the world map like God playing a game of Risk in the name of the greedy and bloodthirsty “Empire” & “Royal Family” — an ugly bunch of inbred retards who don’t do anything whatsoever. Now put that putrid hoity-toity aura of supremacy & entitlement in check, drop the ultra-annoying pompous accents, and desperately beg for the world’s forgiveness. Then after a few hundred years of sincere, heart felt apologies, we might consider forgiving you. But the world knows that you’re too arrogant to admit diabolical wrong doing and beg for forgiveness, which is precisely why you’ll never be forgiven. NEVER. So write your childish, baby nuts complaints to ESB that some writers are being unfair to Froch and British fighters. Whaaaaaaa…. whaaaaaaa!!! Cry us a river and change your dirty diapers. Rule Britarddia!

Bad report

Wow what a negative and basic report. Froth and Kessler put on a great fight tonight. I’ve followed boxing since 1971 and this ranks up there w as an excellent fight. Thanks Carl, thanks mikkel, you are both warriors and one day will be in the hall of fame. Shame this reporter could not give you the respect you deserve. If I were you both I’d consider retirement both of you have nothing to prove, your legacies are intact and you both have been in a lot of wars, enjoy the plaudits.

Man please Froch KO Ward? He cannot stop Kessler who’s way slower with terrible balance.. Carl Froch is a very good Blue Collar fighter who makes the common man feel like Rocky exists but in the REAL world the talent gap between Froch
And Ward is WAYYYYY to wide, I honestly see a scenario where Froch would be lucky to finish.. Remember Froch watched Ward tapes by his own admission to get a gameplan for Kessler.. I’ll be honest Frochs skills are in the C plus range, his chin and will carry the day against these other fighters but against Ward he’s dealing with a fighter who has A’s in all categories absent power… Ward has defeated EVERY style via UD or TKO Dawson a bigger, Slick southpaw, Bika a tough hard customer who’s unorthodox, Kessler and Froch… Froch openly professes his disdain and difficulty facing a guy who boxes on Wards level and is not gonna allow Frochs slow counters to reach his chin or get overly brave like Bute… I respect Froch but he’s 3 rungs beneath Ward as a fighter and I have a feeling that points going to be made emphatically… This is EASY work for Ward….

Yeah the writer of this article says” if Kessler would have won the 12th round I would e gave scored it a draw”! Yeah but it didnt and that’s why he lost !!! I had it 117-111 for froch

Froch problem is that he loads up with a punch trying to ko guys and that a mistake because he will lose rounds doing that and eventually losing to a good technical boxer ,he reminds me if jarmain Taylor sometimes , he thought he was a hard puncher but he wasn’t and that mistake basically ended up his carrier!

SREDMOND, by definition in sport you fight at home if you fight/play in your own country against an opponent from another country. That’s undisputed. By your logic, Froch didn’t fight at home either tonight since it didn’t take place in Nottingham. And their first fight was also on neutral ground then because they fought in Herning and Kessler is from Copenhagen.

Big Al, dream on Wards announcing the fights of guys like Froch and Kessler who are 35, Wards 28 or 29 we are NOT fooled by stadiums here in the US it’s about PPV maybe Ward gets there maybe not …. But in a boxing ring he dominated Kessler and Froch who ate NOT the envy of Big earners in the US… National pride will NEVER make Froch or Kessler anything other than Andre Ward lackeys… Frochs wild style and slow hands are made for Ward, I doubt he’d finish a second contest… Dawson’s a way better fighter technically and he was forced to QUIT…

Posted May 25, 2013 11:06 pm 


Mud

Kessler looked sloppy and had BAD footwork all through the fight. He even looked slow at times and showed signs of “couldn’t pull the trigger anymore”, like aging fighters use to (see Mosley). What kept him in the fight was his resilience only, not actually being on par. Froch looked like he’s 10yrs younger.

Kessler should retire, as he doesn’t need to take any more damage.

Posted May 25, 2013 10:47 pm

SRedmond, Ward can take his ball and go home. He’ll never earn half the money Froch or Kessler have. Or fill any stadium with half as many people. Or give us half as many exciting fights.

I thought Kessler won by a round. Mikkel’s best years are way behind him, but he still looked slicker and sharper than Froch tonight. Great fight though. Amazing atmosphere, and both men fought their hearts out.

Posted May 25, 2013 10:27 pm 


SREDMOND

Ward owes Froch NOTHING…For all the Whiners Carl NEVER fought Ward “at home” they fought in Atlantic City New Jersey… But never let Froch forget his place as challenger he cannot demand anything from a guy who neutralized him with one hand… If he’s serious he will get his ass on a plane and get another HOT steaming plate of SOG ass whipping… Froch cannot handle a technical and increasingly mean elite fighter like Ward… That’s a SUPER easy fight for Ward… Froch is WAYYYYY too easy to hit… Hats off to Mikkel and Carl but NONE OF this atones for thei beatings at the hands of Ward…

Posted May 25, 2013 10:21 pm 


SREDMOND

What people will remember is that Ward left Froch and Kessler fighting like two starving children for the #2 slot… The bitterness with Ward for beating both men up… Froch with a damaged hand is just sad… While Kessler and Froch take abuse and eke by their elite foes Ward dominates them (Froch, Kessler, Dawson) both Kessler and Dawson have finished ALL their fights absent facing Ward who cut their nights short… Make no mistake Frochs rediscovering his swagger is good to see, but he was discussing retirement like a common lame post Ward… If he’s smart he will stay out of the ring with Ward…. A somewhat past it Kessler still gave him a good scrap..

Posted May 25, 2013 10:12 pm 


Mark

In 10 years no one will even remember Ward, he’s boring. So what if Froch lost to him, so did Gatti to many but he was more entertaining than the rest.

Hopkins bought would be the most anticipated, I think Hopkins could win as Froch is wide open to counters which is Hopkins game. Would be an interesting fight and great build up though and he would titles in 2 weights as well as matching Calzaghe if he got the win.

Posted May 25, 2013 10:02 pm 


PEEJ

You are dreaming. Yes Ward was slowing down but he had already dominated so much of the fight. And if it was 15 rounds he would of trained for 15 rounds. Oh yeah he beat Froch with a fractured hand

Posted May 25, 2013 9:50 pm 


Vanihm

I had it even maybe 115-114 Froch. Still Kessler looked tired and didn’t have the energy for 12 rounds. Had he been 2 years younger he would have won IMO. Froch only proved that Kessler is over the hill.

Posted May 25, 2013 9:47 pm 


TARK

Lefthook…. Froch won just like I predicted… He’s a much better boxer than Kessler … But come on man.. Somebody give Cleverly or Groves a shot.. Fight a slick boxer for a change.. Sparring is completely different than a fight.. You’re going to get buzzed if you spar for 15 years.. Something’s going to catch you that you didn’t see.. I’ll bet Kessler never hurt Groves.

Posted May 25, 2013 9:29 pm 


Big Al

Tark. Ward had to bite his lip at the UK interviewer because he had the nerve to suggest that Ward fight Froch outside of the US. Will never happen. Ward said anything outside of Oakland is an away fight for him. Also, I think he was knocking on B-hop cause Hop said he would go to the UK and Ward wouldn’t. Its an easy fight for Ward, but its asking too much of the SOG.

Posted May 25, 2013 9:23 pm 


TARK

Kessler didn’t do crap… Froch had to carry the fight or there would have been no fght.. Hiring Groves and Cleverly as sparring partners was a brilliant move.. It not only twisted Froch out of shape, it showed that Kessler was extremely serious and not skimping on getting ready.. However those 2 boys must have had to hold back.. Kessler must have been getting out-boxed every day.

I’d like to see Groves or Cleverly against Froch… I can’t see how he could beat them.

Alf_p : C’mon as a fellow dane….I want him to take one last dance with Froch…Sure he’s lost a step….But he only lost a close fight at World-class level no shame in that….There where both positive and negatives…He lost the first 3 rounds because of lack of lateral body moving….Montoya didn’t train him proper for the jab…You just can’t afford to throw 3 rounds in the bin like that at this level….In what all knew would be a close fight away….They got the plan B working in the 4th and Kessler took 3 in a row…Both guys took some vicious hits tonight…On the positive Kessler still has the chin and he didn’t mark up as badly as he has been prone to since Ward…He almost decked Froch in the 11th and spent his last powers there…And had to survive the 12th….But only 18 rounds in 3 years is always going to hurt you in a 12-rounder….A 3rd fight is hardly unwinnable…Kessler stiil can produce great fights….Or else he would have just caved in and dived in the 12th….But sure Kessler has possibilities out-side the ring and could pursue them…I just think an end to the trilogy would be great for Him,his wallet and us the boxing fans

Posted May 25, 2013 8:53 pm 


TARK

Anyone who scored this fight 115-113 is blind and stupid… When you make the round by being more aggressive and throwing a lot more — and when you also land more and harder — it’s your round… This fight was 118-110 for Froch, who worked twice as hard as Kessler… Like usual when Kessler faces world class fighters, he expects the other guy to do all the fighting and waits for monster openings that never come. He fought a more active fight than he did against Calzaghe…where if he just followed up a couple of those massive uppercuts with left hooks, he might have won … I’ll give him credit for improving his skills since then.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:52 pm

Froch said in the interwiev he wanted Froch – Kessler III the decider… now Kessler has said in an interwiew in danish newspaper after the fight that he also wants a decider in a netural venue,,, let just hope the promotors can make this happpen,, after this great great fight, should be no problem :)

I think Ward’s going to miss out on paychecks and won’t realize his full potential if he stays in Oakland for the rest of his career. People whined about Calzaghe staying in Wales all the time so it’s only fair that Ward should get criticised. Froch will end up facing Hopkins next because Bernard is smart and knows there’s money to be made in the UK.

Nothing against my American comrades but this whole come to the USA and get it thing is tiresome. I think you will find there are as many Brits love Kessler as they do Froch…because he has never ducked anybody and left his comfort zone to fight away from home. Ward would seriously increase his global respect and fan base by showing he can be top dog ANYWHERE…not just in his own garden.

Ward vs. Froch II could only happen in the UK cause that’s the only place it will generate money. I respect Ward and I think he’s the P4P best but frankly it’s time he went abroad, boxing is meant to be a world sport it doesn’t revolve around Oakland.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:36 pm 


Alf_p

Great entertaining fight. Massive respect to both fighters. As a dane however, I hope that Kessler now retires. Although mentally and tactically better now, he is physically very far from the Kessler that fought in 2006 and 2007. Much slower and gets hits a lot more. Not a good thing, when you already have accumulated injury to your body.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:35 pm 


Big Al

In a way I guess its poetic justice for Ward. He won’t fight away because he doesn’t want to feel disrespected and feels he should be treated like the SOG he is, but I predict he’ll never realize the kind of money earned by guys like Kessler and Froch either, or get recognized by anyone outside of Oakland for that matter. That’s what he deserves I guess. His type are usually their own undoing and always walk around feeling like they never get the respect they deserve. I think he was even trying to throw criticism at Bernard Hopkins too.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:35 pm

The Kingdom, ROBE, and CROWN of 168 lies in Oakland, California. SO why would Ward Fight away??? IF you really WANT it you’ll come and GET it. IF someone is GOOD enough to come and take the CROWN somewhere ELSE then Ward will HAPPILY come there and take it BACK.

Tomato-can: What anti-american prop. are you talking about?…..Sure, we don’t like Ward…But neither does the americans….Or else there would be more attending his fights…or caring for that matter…It’s pretty clear (for me atleast) that the US has some problems with Doping and it’s Germany or the US that has most corrupt judges or that dirty tacticts are accepted in the ring in the US….I honestly don’t think it’s anti-american to discuss those problems…

Kesslerfriend

Well, congrstulations to Froch, but the judge who scored 118-110 should be baned from boxing in all eternity – just shamefull to the sport. I had it 115-113 in favor of Froch. It was a close one, and boy did Kessler almost have Froch in the sack in the 11th! Kessler Said postfight, that he did not have the energi to follow up. Guess Froch likewise had Kessler in Big trouble in the 12th. In the postfight comments Kessler admitted that he did not/could not stik to his ganeplan. He was prepared for the jab and ude a move/counterpunch tactic – but failed in practise. I think Kessler looked a bit shot to be honest – not the man he used to be. I would seriusly consider not going into a part III – What new stuff would he come up with?

Ward confirmed he won’t fight away, that is not good enough for the Boxing fans, we pay your wages, have some respect.

Tomato Can.. Not saying that at all bro. Kessler is finished and Froch has been in way too many wars as well and taken way too much punishment. I already predicted long ago that Ward would eventually find his passport and come over to Europe but that he would either cherrypick a weak champ who stood no chance of beating him or wait for Kessler and Froch to pound the the last remnants of fight out of each before he discoved he had a pair of bollocks not swinging between his thighs. lol.

lol, I haven’t paid that much attention to Ward’s chip on his shoulder or sense of entitlement. But I did notice it a little tonight. I’ll pay more attention to it in the future. As of for now, I’ll give him the benefit of doubt.

The Truth-Go take a BRAIN scan. That wasn’t ME. That was one of MY Nut Sack Garglers. I took Froch on the DAY that the Fight was announced and the post is still THERE to prove it!!!! I’m almost as GREAT as Boxtradamus!!! What a NICE call!!!

Posted May 25, 2013 8:23 pm 


Gonzo of Nazaerth

Big Al.. I’ve been telling people for years that Ward has a huge chip on his shoulder, grotesque sense of entitlement, and is a whinny disingenuous hypocritical cnut. He’s not the Mr. Nice Guy he likes to portray himself as in the media. He likes to play the devout Christian, and tries to say the right things, but his body language and facial impressions don’t match what he’s saying a lot of the time and the minute he’s under the slightest bit of distress or put under pressure his bitterness and sense of entitlement comes gushing out.

Quote – CORRECTAMUNDO – Froch will be “easy” work for Kessler. I am the greatest fight prophet EVER born!!!!
Posted May 23, 2013 3:59 pm

Wrong and lying again. Worst prophet ever. Froch wins making Kessler “easy” work for Froch. Although we all know it wasn’t too “easy”.

Old School Rules

Kessler should take the WBO strap from Steiglitz and retire with a belt. Froch should fight Ward in England (I’m American) and retire if he loses. He has nothing left to prove unless he can get a rematch with Dirrrel.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:19 pm 


Tomato Can

Gonzo. lol.. So I guess you’re saying you’d pick Froch and Kessler over Ward in a rematch? I wouldn’t, but anything’s possible.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:18 pm 


Tomato Can

lefthook, you’re right… Hey Don’t get me wrong, I thought the fight was great, and I thought both fighters put on a great show. I picked Froch to win. It’s just the Anti-American stuff rubs me the wrong way, sometimes. Mostly when Euro fights are going on. But in any case, I don’t have a problem with what Carl says or does.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:16 pm 


Old School Rules

It’s sad to see Kessler such a shadow of what he used to be, but the fighters that rely on their superior athleticism (Kessler, Jones Jr) always end up like this at this age. On the other hand, guys who use strength and toughness (Froch, Foreman) can last into their 40s since power and chin are the last to go.

big Al – i agree, ward went right down in my opinion.. he needs to grow a pair and come fight in the UK… for the record i still think he wins though

Posted May 25, 2013 8:14 pm 


TARK

This guy is dead wrong… Froch won 118-110… He put forth over twice the effort of Kessler and threw when there were no openings.. Kessler wasn’t doing much and Froch was determined to make it an exciting fight for the fans.. He could have won by jabbing, pot-shotting, and hanging back, but he expended the last ounce of his energy.

Froch out-landed Kessler in the first fight and landed the more damaging punches.. This time he upped the margin considerably.. Kessler just doesn’t have it against world class boxers.

Well done to both fighters. Thoroughly enjoyed it and had froch 3 up. 118-110 was ridiculous though.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:10 pm

Anybody else watching SkySports get the sense that Ward looked totally irritated to even have to be there and answer questions? Starting to get annoyed with this guy’s attitude and personality.

Tonight was one of the few occasions when the “Great” was put back in Britain and I was proud to be a Brit. Well done Carl.

Gonzo of Nazaerth

Froch looked slower tonight than he has done in his last two fights. He was falling into the same old trap that has plagued him for most of his career: Loading up too much on his punches.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:07 pm 


CORRECTAMUNDO

Froch came out there out jabbing Kessler from the JUMP. And then he started following it UP with the BOMBS. Kessler’s chin is Top NOTCH. Anybody else takes those shots and gets TKO’d if not KO’d.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:06 pm 


Gonzo of Nazaerth

Froch was clearly just super motivated and just wasn’t thinking straight. He obviously didn’t mean it or say it with malice.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:05 pm 


PJD

I think Ward would completely dominate Froch 120-108 if they have a rematch.
Froch is just too slow.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:05 pm 


Gonzo of Nazaerth

Of course it was classless. Boxing is extremely dangerous and there’s no place in it for comments like that, or PED cheats either.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:04 pm

Tomatoe Can… Come on m8, its not like you with the negativity. It was just pre fight BS. Froch totally bosses that fight from start to finnish, almost stopping him on a few occasions

Froch’s a warrior with a great chin. He was very focused tonight.
But god is he awful to watch. Technically horrendous.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:03 pm 


CORRECTAMUNDO

The only guy in the Sport that can beat Ward right now is Floyd. Ward would even beat Wladimir Klitschko by decision. IF Ward chose to Fight Rock em Sock em Robot style then he’d LOSE. He’s not going to abandon his Boxing SKILLS like that…….Anyways NICE WIN by Froch!!! THANKS for giving MY record another BOOST!!!

Posted May 25, 2013 8:01 pm 


kk17

scored it 115-113 Froch 116-112 Froch is ok too 118-110 ? no way

Kessler has still something left but should take some more easy fight next like Abraham, Stieglitz or
James DeGale

Posted May 25, 2013 8:01 pm 


Tomato Can

Froch won, he deserved the win… I don’t even care about what he says or does, but he’s hardly a class act is he? How would he feel if, Kessler developed a brain bleed from tonights fight? I don’t care what he says, but IMO it’s what he said was classless.

Posted May 25, 2013 8:00 pm

well done mr carl froch i nvr thought in eer this would be the result thought kessler a class above how wrong was i nice one tell you what frotch what a warrior nvr quits.

Posted May 25, 2013 7:59 pm 


Gonzo of Nazaerth

Yeah, they both took crazy shots Tomato Can but Kessler’s chin and toughness doesn’t get anywhere near the praise Froch’s does. That’s why I drew attention to it.

Posted May 25, 2013 7:57 pm 


Tomato Can

Ward, just knows he’s better than both Froch and Kessler, yet they both whine and cry about supposed injustices in their losses to Ward. Obviously, Ward is going to show a little less respect to both of them because of that. But from the sounds of things, Froch isn’t going to get his wish of fighting Ward where he feels he gets it right. But even Froch isn’t sure he’s be able to beat Ward at home. It was nice to see Froch speak so honestly about that fact.

Great fight Froch pulled it out like I thought he would.But I really think if they fought again Froch would win even easier,like somebody said Kessler is more on his down slide.Froch is still peaking I belive where Kessler I really belive is going to see things are getting tougher as he fights on…

Froch stumbled in round 11. That was Kessler’s moment for a knockdown. Decision for Froch was fair. I think these two fights show the difference in what a home advantage can give a fighter mentally.
