Froch out of the gates like a man possessed. Kessler struggling to find his rhythm so far.

I'm in the UK and actually scored it a draw. Kessler taking 456 9 10 11, a couple of those with counter punching that i can understand judges not seeing or whatever. how that judge reached 118-110 i dont know. froch was always the aggressor so if thats what they look for i can understand, but only 2 rounds to kessler? great fight tho

I had it 7-5 for Froch as well. Kessler was too inactive at the beginning and gave away rounds.

But he came on at the end. Good fight.

I don't mind 7-5 Froch, his activity level definitely gave him some swing rounds, my goodness these chins on them...I think Kessler might of over trained some, seemed weird in there too me, probably why he didn't throw as much this fight. Regardless great fight, would love to see a trilogy.

Lennox Lewis Warns Froch About Facing Ward Again                                                                                                                                              Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65942#ixzz2UR8yO5O2

Former undisputed heavyweight world champion Lennox Lewis believes Carl Froch will have his work cut out if he fights American Andre Ward.

Froch defended his IBF super-middleweight title and took Mikkel Kessler's WBA belt with a unanimous points decision win over the Dane at London's 02 Arena.

A previous defeat to Kessler and one to Ward are the only blemishes on Froch's professional career but Lewis thinks the Nottingham boxer should be wary of the American.

Lewis told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme of the prospect of Froch fighting Ward: "He's really going to have to go to camp and fix up some of his technical issues.

"He cannot fight the same way he fought in this fight.

"Against Andre Ward he has got to be a little bit scared because Andre Ward is a serious hombre and he's coming there to fight and he's looking for that knockout.

"If he sees a chink in your armour in any way he will seize that opportunity."

Lewis was impressed with the way Froch stepped up and took the fight to Kessler.

"Let me tell you he felt really comfortable in there," Lewis added.

"He basically threw a lot of the boxing out of the door and he was just going in there for a smash-up. He boxed really well, he was in control."

Kessler rocked Froch with a punch in the sixth round and that was an area of concern for Lewis.

"There were a couple of sticky moments that I was concerned about but he did very well. He showed he can take a punch.

"I was surprised at Kessler because although he looked like the better boxer he just didn't have the heart for it.

"Froch had the heart and the willingness. He just wanted to show everybody that he's a banger.

"He really dug deep. Even that last round because if I was his trainer I would have told him he had won the fight and he did not need to risk anything.

"But he wanted to risk it and he wanted to go in there and knock Kessler out."

Kessler Admits Carl Froch's Pace Was Too Much                                                                                                                                                      Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65938#ixzz2URCnikha
This is a legal waiver. By copying and using the material from this article, you agree to give full credit to BoxingScene.com or provide a link to the original article.

Mikkel Kessler admitted he could not handle the pace set by Carl Froch as the Nottingham man took a points win in their exciting rematch. Froch made a fast start against his super-middleweight rival and Kessler did not gain a foothold until the middle rounds, but 'The Cobra' came on strong to earn a unanimous decision at the 02 Arena in London. Kessler almost staged a grandstand finish in the 11th when a right hand left Froch on unsteady legs, but the gruelling battle had taken his toll on the 34-year-old who could not force a stoppage.

"It was tough with the good crowd he has at home," he said. "It's not nice to come into such an arena when it's not your own people. It's nice to see so many boxing fans here, but still I know there will be a lot of Danish people at home and I want to thank them very much for supporting me. I gave it my all. I was tired in the end. I hurt Carl in the 11th round, but I couldn't follow I hadn't the energy to do it. It was a very tough fight, and very tough coming over here, but it is nice to fight a warrior who wants to fight."

wouldn't mind seeing a Groves/Froch fight, but I'm sure Froch is looking for a bigger pay day...he wants a rematch with Ward but in the UK..I think Froch/Hopkins would be more competitive.

I really like this kid George Groves. He's a fun fighter to watch.

Froch has bigger fish to fry but I'd love to see Groves step up the quality of his opposition. I believe he's ranked #1 by the WBO so he should be getting a title shot soon.
