The Judge: I agree with Kessler going to the body, even more this time. Regarding the comments of the fighters: Froch = I will Ko Kessler before the 9th round and Kessler: I hope I don’t kill him:) Talk is certainly cheap. Lets be honest, everything you can imagine, can happen in a fight like this, with firepower and hardness. Who could have known that the Magee who made Froch look like a half dead man, would be taken out in 3 rounds against Kessler. Who would have thought that Froch could box that elegantly against Abraham in Finland.

Tark, you’re out of your mind, clearly. Ward is a cheating, dirty fighter! He headbutted Kessler numerous times and would hold and punch. Froch is a more technical fighter?!? How!?!?!?!?!? Froch has NO defense, none! You said Froch got robbed in Denmark (which is of course untrue, like everything else in your comment), what about Dirrell getting robbed in England after rocking Froch and landing cleaner punches, all while his loud mouth bimbo was screaming over the commentators?!? Froch is good but Kessler is better… Thats the unbridled truth!

Tark: You must be in denial if you think that Froch won the fight in Denmark. Just look at the compustats for the fight. Kessler hit Froch more and was the busier fighter: Kessler –
Total Thrown: 765, Total Connects: 147 (19%) * Froch – Total Thrown: 546, Total Connects: 98 (18%)

Froch says he will KO Kessler within 9 rounds, I think it will be the other way around though, I can see Kessler targeting and stopping Froch with body shots this time around. The only reason this fight is even happening is because Froch hates the fact that Calzaghe beat Kessler and he didnt, this is the only reason he wants “Revenge”

You can’t stamp that anything but nonsense… Kessler isn’t technically sound at all… The only fighter MK ever fought who was a good technician was Ward. Froch is twice the technical fighter Kessler is — and is hardly a boxer. But he’s a better fighter and brawler than Kessler. At least he slips punches better. Ward hit Kessler with everything he threw and would have knocked him cold in the next round after they stopped it. Froch will get his revenge for that robbery in Denmark — and he’ll do it by KO.

Andrade is a fantastic gauge to let a potential breakout boxer know where they stand. Liberado has a hell of a beard and will keep coming forward. He’s no slouch. Kessler made Andrade’s head look like rock’em sock’em robots. He beat the hell outta that guy and he kept coming. On the other hand, Bute did well against Andrade but Andrade’s pursuit started to take it’s toll on Bute as he started to run outta gas and Bute got caught and went down a few times at the end of the fight. He was able to win most earlier rounds and secure the win even though he was decked several times at the end. To make a long story short, Andrade proved that Bute has big flaws and if you walk Lucian down, he doesn’t know how to fight going backwards or defend. You can’t be a champion and not be able to fight or defend going backwards. Froch did his homework and executed the plan, easy enough. Froch has balls to do that but it certainly paid off. Bute however is definitely not on Kessler’s level. Kessler has been in with the absolute best and knows how to fight going backwards and how to defend himself.

Wicky, Froch didn’t put Kessler “out of action”. Previous injuries carried into the fight did. And here’s something for you to consider; Kessler, coming into the first fight with Froch with lingering injuries was nowhere near 100 percent and I believe he had just switched trainers as well. Kessler is undeniably a more technically sound fighter than Froch and a healthy, in tune kessler will most certainly handle and possibly make a short night of Froch, and you can stamp that!

The last fight wasn’t particularly “grueling.” … It was a very sloppy, amateurish, wild swinging affair.. No sizzling weapons at all.. Froch should be a lot sharper in the rematch because he looked spectacular aganist Bute.. If he brings the same caliber fight to the Dane he’ll put him down and out. It depends on which Froch shows up – the rusty, plodding, Tin Man wood chopper who fought Taylor – or the Gattling gun who fought Bute.

Dirrell may have beaten Froch, but Carl was robbed against Kessler… Saying Kessler landed the cleaner shots is utter nonsense because Carl had Kessler going at times. Only a biased referee saved Kessler by breaking up non-clinches whenever Carl was doing a job on him with a hand free. Now Froch has a chance for revenge. He did look spectacular against Bute and to say he doesn’t fight better in England is more craziness.

He certainly looked better vs Ward than Kessler did.. Mikkel was a big stiff punching bag who Ward clobbered at will.

It wasn’t the Froch fight that injured Kessler’s eyes but the headbutts from Ward. Of course the very hard fight with Froch didn’t improve the injury. In fact Kessler played with his health in taking that match. Fortunately it seems he pulled through and now we have a great fight to look forward to.

Kessler’s durability could be his biggest problem. On paper Kessler won the last fight, although it’s contentious. However, Froch put Kessler out of action for a considerable time. Another grueling fight like that might end Kessler’s career.

Don’t be stupid… Bute is no way near the level of Kessler or Froch. He is overrated at best. A pure paper champ with absolutely no notches under his belt whatsoever. Powerwise he is far far behind the likes of Kessler. An idiotic statement pure and simple. Froch took this fool to school. Just shows you how far there is between the top 3 with Ward edging both Froch and Kessler. The gap from those three to the rest is imense.

I would love to read your Pre fight prediction for Froch-Bute. To say it was an easy defence afterwards because Froch won by Ko is ridiculous. It was a very dangerous fight against a fighter at least on a par with Kessler power wise. To say Froch lost practically every exchange with Kessler is also total rubbish. Did Kessler win that fight… Yes but if certainly very close.
