Carl Froch Jabs Mikkel Kessler


O2 Arena, London, UK– (HBO) Carl Froch (32-2, 22 KOs) UD 12 Mikkel Kessler (46-3, 35 KOs) (IBF 168 lb. title) Froch was rolling early and had things in hand through ten frames before Kessler, needed the KO to win, went for it in round eleven and didn’t get it. Both fighters felt the sting of the other, but Brit was the better man this evening. Froch wants another bout with World 168 lb. king Andre Ward.


Argentina– Champion Omar Andres Narvaez (39-1-2, 20 KOs) SD 12 Felipe Orucuta (27-2, 23 KOs) (WBO 115 lb. title) Most people feel Oruceta did enough, if not “more” than enough to win here with a strong finish. Because of the controversy, does this mean the WBO mandates a rematch? Told you in preview that unless Orucuta gets “lightning in a bottle,” he’s losing on points.

  • I’m not quite sure whats more annoying, Froch and his bluster or his wifes chalk on a blackboard voice. Either way, someone should remind him and his promoter that being in the “drivers seat” means nothing if youre driving a bumper car at a circus. You got DOMINATED by Ward. I understand wanting to fight in the UK for a home cooking decision but hopefully Ward knows better. Youre right in one respect, fans will certainly press replay to see you fight again. Your rock em-sock em style is very entertaining however, anyone who wants to learn how to box, rather than take repeated head punches will rewind to watch Andre. Carl, how entertaining will it be 10 years from now when those head shots catch up to you and youre having trouble remembering your sons name, or his birthday,…or you start slurring your speech. Google Arturo Gatti and see your future, a punchy guy trying to live off past glory. PS. Calzaghe would have kicked your ass, not that I’m a fan of his, but he beat Lacy (who was a MONSTER at the time) and a young Kessler who everyone picked to beat him. What prime fighter did you beat?…a last second miracle against Jermaine Taylor? How about your miracle against Dirrell?….beaten by Ward…maybe no chin Bute or overated Abraham…sounds like hall of fame credentials to me lol
