Froch to put right Kessler wrongs

January 17, 2013 14:44:42 UK
Carl Froch is determined to defeat Mikkel Kessler in their May re-match.

Carl Froch has warned Mikkel Kessler there will be no repeat of the problems that resulted in his defeat during their last meeting in the ring.

The 35-year-old Nottingham fighter has finally been granted his wish for a re-match against his Danish super-middleweight rival in a big £4million unification showdown set to take place in the UK on 25th May.

And, having lost out to 33-year-old Kessler in their previous showdown in April 2010, Froch has vowed that he is 'ready to go to war' and history will not repeat itself in their 2013 meeting.

It's time for me to put it right and do what needs to be done. I now have a tough training camp ahead of me.

IBF belt holder, Froch, is 1.44 to come out on top and take Kessler's WBA title on the night with the Dane 2.87 to make it two wins over The Cobra.

Don't forget all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on your mobile phone and tablet with the new and improved bet365 On The Move.

Froch said: "It was particularly heartbreaking to lose that fight against him. It was the first time I had lost and I lost my WBC world title. I regained it in my next fight but I still had that loss to Kessler.

"I know I could have beaten him on the night but there were a few problems that I won't go into because people don’t want to hear excuses.

"The things that went wrong in the first fight will not be allowed to happen this time around.

"It's time for me to put it right and do what needs to be done. I now have a tough training camp ahead of me."

Kessler has hit back at Froch and insists that he will use their bout to prove that he is the greater fighter once and for all.

He added: "I am ready to defeat him once again. I don't care where we fight, I said anytime, anywhere, I plan to make my loyal Viking fans, as well as everybody else in Denmark, very proud once again. I am ready for war."
