Carl Froch wants Mikkel Kessler decider

Published Add your comment

Carl Froch has declared his main interest is fighting Mikkel Kessler for a third time in a 'decider'.

The pair fought in Copenhagen three years ago where Kessler won by decision before a reversal of result last month at the O2 Arena in London.

There has also been much talk ahead of a potential rematch between Froch and Andre Ward after their first fight in 2011.

Froch told ESPN: "I fancy a third fight with Kessler because I love fighting Mikkel. It's my kind of fight. You know that he comes to fight.

"Andre Ward is a great fighter and you know you're going to get a hard night's work with a trickster. But I'd rather fight Kessler for the decider." 

There is a lot of respect between Froch and Kessler despite the two having boxed each other for 72 minutes overall.

Both fights between the pair went the distance with the judges ruling Kessler the win in his home country, and Froch the winner in his.

The Nottingham fighter lost to Andre Ward in the final of the Super Six in the US two years ago.

It was another fight that went the distance as Ward inflicted Froch's second ever defeat, with the first one being to Kessler.

Froch said that he would be happy to fly to Las Vegas to tackle Ward for a second time.After the most recent Froch-Kessler fight, 

The 35-year-old added: "You know it's going to be difficult to win the fight against Ward depending on where it is and what referees you've got.

"Because I've boxed him before I know what to expect so I'd prepare differently, but a fight with Ward is a massive fight and one I want to avenge 100%."
