Mikkel Kessler
Matchroom Sport and Sauerland Promotion, the promoters of Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler respectively, have announced that the two world super middleweight world champions will face each other in Britain on a date and at a venue to be decided.  The match up between IBF king Froch and WBA champ Kessler could be the fight of the year and the two sides are delighted that terms have been agreed for the biggest fight on British soil in 2013.

  Full details on the fight will be announced at a press conference soon, and both fighters have expressed their delight that they will once again lock horns.

  "First and foremost, I’m really pleased the fight has finally been arranged,” said Froch. “I feared that Kessler had second thoughts about his promise - but the man has come good on his word.  

"Our first fight was pure warfare. We went at each other for every minute of every round and the rematch promises to be even more fiercely contested. I seriously wish I was ringside myself for this fight, because I’m gunning for revenge at all costs and the fight fans are in for a real treat.  

"He is a class act both inside and outside the ropes. We are cut from the same cloth and we will be friends yet again after the fight. But the moment I heard the fight was done on the telephone, I was completely switched on and he was the focus of my mind. I can’t wait to get back into camp for this one. I’ve never felt so motivated.  

"If Mikkel thinks he saw the best of me in Denmark then he is in for a rude awakening. I give him the utmost respect that he has the guts to board that plane and come collect a serious whooping at the hands of the Cobra - let’s bring it on!”  

“I promised Carl we would meet again and here we are, getting ready to leave it all in the ring for a second time,” said Kessler.  

“I have the utmost of respect for Carl, I feel we are very much alike. He is a great champion, a true warrior that has fought the best opponents all over the world in some of the most hostile places, just like me. Our first fight, especially the last round, showed what we are all about and I was to do it again.  

“Since that first fight, I have become even stronger. I am fresh, I am healthy and 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!”  

”This is one for the ages,” said Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn. ”My hat goes off to both men for putting everything on the line here in what can only be an epic battle. Too many super fights fall by the wayside so to make Froch v Kessler 2 is a dream come true.  

”Froch vs. Kessler 1 was a barnburner but I really feel Carl is a different fighter now, especially in the UK. These are the kinds of fights and nights that can cement the legacy of Carl Froch and no one deserves it more. We know what to expect from both men and either way it’s going to be brutal.”

"Kessler vs. Froch I was an instant classic, the best fight ever on Danish soil – Kessler vs. Froch II will be even better,” said Kessler’s promoter Kalle Sauerland. ”Mikkel and Carl are two all-time greats, two future hall-of-famers and they will leave it all in the ring once again.

  “We have worked non-stop since Mikkel´s victory over Brian Magee to make this fight happen and give the boxing fans in Denmark, Britain and all over the world what they want to see – a mega-fight that will go down in boxing history.

  “Kessler versus Froch, the Viking Warrior versus the Cobra, the WBA Champ versus the IBF Champ, Copenhagen versus Nottingham, Denmark versus England. This is all about honour, pride and sportsmanship. It´s history in the making. This is what boxing is all about and what boxing needs, two true warriors toe-to-toe.

  “This fight will be remembered for years to come. The Viking Warrior is coming to England for war!” to Doghouse Boxing.
