Mikkel Kessler: I can become World Champion again

Following months of speculation, today, former five-time World Champion Mikkel Kessler announced his intentions to continue boxing and fight his way back to the top of the sport he loves.
 
“I’ve thought a lot about whether I should continue my career,’’ said Kessler.  ‘’I became a father and I have a life outside of boxing that I really appreciate. I’ve got a special responsibility. So it was not a decision I took lightly.
 
‘’But I still feel I have something to prove. I hate to lose! And I lost my last fight against Carl Froch. Many thought that I would quit, but I owe it to myself and my fans to finish on top. My last performance showed that I still belong at the top. And I know that my fans believe in me.’

Plenty of options still left for Froch

Reigning IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch is at the peak of his career right now and is at the stage where he will want to cash in on the biggest fights he can get before hanging up his gloves for good. He is fighting George Groves on November 23rd, and providing that the Nottingham fighter wins convincingly and without controversy, the search for more big fights will continue. But who is left? Actually, there are surprisingly still a number of worthy fights as I will tell.

Froch-Kessler final press conference quotes

IBF CHAMPION CARL FROCH:

“It doesn´t get any better than this… to be involved in a fight of this magnitude at this scale against a fighter like Mikkel Kessler at this venue…I could almost explode. I feel shaky and nervous but also confident and strong. I am so sharp. I will enjoy it, I will leave absolutely everything in the ring, heart, soul, guts, tears and blood if necessary.”

Froch v Kessler; The wait is finally over

Saturday night at the 02 arena in London, Britain’s IBF world champion Carl “The Cobra” Froch, will face for the second time “The Viking Warrior” Mikkel Kessler, in a bill titled ” Warriors Call “.

The first time these guys locked horns, the Great Dane took a unanimous points win against Froch on his home soil, in an enthralling battle, and now Kessler – looking in the mood to do business, is promising come Saturday night he will go 2-0 up, against the man many Boxing scribes feel is the favourite.
