Froch should’nt waste time on this mandatory defence much bigger & better fights to be made in rematches with kessler, bute & ward, on current form i see him beat kessler, destroy bute again but tbh he would still come up short against ward as he is on another level. He could then retire or maybe even go for a title at light-heavy i.e domestic showdown against cleverley

I’d rather see him fight Adrian Adonis.

I think the Cobra will relinquish the belt for a more lucrative fight but it would be good to see belts on the line vs Kessler than just a high profile exhibition match.

Not interested in Froch vs. Stevenson one bit. I’d rather see Froch vs. Ward, Bute, or Kessler.

The total lack of information from Sauerland and Hearns and the IBF is strange. Since there were no press conference in Canada, Friday, regarding Froch vs Stevenson, and Frochs own position, I believe that Froch vs Kessler 2 will happen, and be confirmed soon. Froch and Kessler with their injuries and age have 2 to 3 fights left, they both said this, so when Kessler has outpointed Froch in London, he can take on Ward in Las Vegas and end with an easy fight, like Abraham or Bute or Pavlik. Good money, good career.

I’d like to see you in the ring with one

I want to see Froch-Kessler II in Nottingham.. Stevenson can fight the winner, which will be Froch… The winner of the Nottingham based Froch-Stevenson fight can rematch Ward… That fight will be held in Vegas … While Froch is knocking out Kessler I’d like to see Stevenson fight Andre Dirrell.

Mick: Wouldn’t it make more sense that Bute(4) and Stevenson(1) fought for one of the spots in a titlefight while Rodriguez(3) and Oosthuizsen(5) fought for the second spot given their ratings at IBF…..To make some kind of amends for a stupid decision.

I’ve also read that Froch is prepared to vacate the title if they get in the way of a Kessler rematch. What’s the betting the IBF order Bute vs Stephenson?

I think most Kessler fans has respect and some love for Froch(Minus the retarded ones)…Just as i think most Froch fans has respect and some love for Kessler(Minus the retarded ones)

The first fight was that kind of fight….Where boxing actually wins….Let’s all hope the contract is signed soon.

wtf are you saying? Boxing fans are the most retarded.

Nice try but your retardation is not hidden enough.

The Kingslayer

I wonder what happened, seems like a no brainer to me that a rematch is the best fight out there for both Kessler and Froch. Oh and lol at the clown asking Froch to step up, he must have missed the war he brought to Denmark.

Froch fighting another bum hahaha when will he ever step up to the plate and fight Kessler the Viking Gladiator???? Froch only fights bums he’s worse then Wilder!!!!

A big danish newspaper just reported that Froch will vacate his IBF title to meet Kessler, if he has to, Kessler also wants this fight in 2013 in London.

Froch vs Stevenson is as interesting as Ward vs Boone, the common denominator here, Boone Koed both Ward and Stevenson. Froch vs Stevenson a good fight, not in a million years, it is the typical 3 round easy Froch fight, ending in a Ko. I think its time the big dogs, in the smw division start meeting again. All these boring warm up fights, its not on, after the super 6. I have not been able to find any real confirmation that Froch vs Kessler 2 is gone. Maybe they just postponed the fight until this summer.

Froch/Stevenson is a good match up, but Froch/Kessler is better. Froch/Kessler will definitely make more money too. If necessary Carl needs to drop the IBF belt (alphabet soup means nothing anyway), and make his rematches with Mikkel and Andre. If “Superman” is any good at all he’ll still be around for a fight with Froch in a year or so.

I can’t see this happening, there’s far too much ca$h involved with Froch/Kessler II. If however it did happen in Canada how about compramising & staging it @ Alberta or even over the border @ NYC? As I said Froch/Stephenson is a no brainer with no interest outside of Quebec.

Jim Carrey’s Mom

Really!?!?! How many of these Canadians with the French coward streak does Froch need to beat up until these clowns realise they aren’t any good. Maybe Lemeiux will move up to SMW and be next. French Canadians are the weakest fighters in the world.

I make the fight at Port-Au-Prince! 5 millions US$ for the British and 5 for our champion Adonis, our other national hero Jean Pascal will be on co-main event! Vive Haïti!

If this fight ends up taking place in Montreal then Eddie Hearn wants sacking i’m afraid.

Stevenson’s biggest wins are vs George and Jesus Gonzalez. It would be a travesty if this fight takes place in Canada, and that’s before taking into account what an unsavoury fellow Stevenson is. Are Canada really so desperate for live boxers that they support his guy?

” “but the ‘Superman’ fight is certainly the most profitable, as well as the best alternative for the champion” cant see how this match up would net more than kessler froch ………

This is a tough fight for Froch if he chooses to go this route. Honestly though, I really don’t see this fight taking place anytime soon as long as Kessler/Froch is on the table. It’s a much bigger event with much more money involved. I don’t see the IBF choosing not to support Froch if he still wants the unification bout with Mikkel Kessler.

The IBF’s 3% will be much more with a big ticket fight like Froch/Kessler.

If the IBF is smart they will allow Froch to defend against Kessler, creating a stipulation that guarantees Stevenson a shot at the winner.

Well this is a decent fight and will be good while it last but Foch wins by KO

Nonsense. The challenger does not dictate where the champion fights him. Besides why would Adonis want to get his ass kicked in his home town? I’d pass on this fight altogether if I were Froch. He doesn’t need the IBF trinket and Adonis is beneath him.

This completely contradicts everything that the President of the IBF just told me two days ago.

I was told that Lindsey Tucker was overseeing negotiations between Froch and Kessler, so I would be willing to assume that this is merely a press release written by Stevenson’s management and promoter.

They can plan on fighting the IBF’s decision, but there’s not much they can do about it.

A unification bout is the best thing for the sport and the IBF realizes this. i don’t see them taking the side of Adonis on this one.

Desperation to have it in Quebec!!! I would like to see it in neutral ground, but its stevenson who is the challenger so he should rightly try to get it from Robin Hood county.
