Missed the fight, but props to Froch on his victory and I'd like to see Carl Froch get a rematch with either Andre Ward or Andre Dirrell, or fight the old man Hopkins.

Good fight. Froch turned the tables and wanted the fight more than Kessler this time around. The exact opposite of the first fight. I was impressed with the improvement in Kessler's head movement and attention to defense. His balance however is absolutely atrocious. May be the worst I've seen in a while. The late great Manny Steward would work wonders in his training camp. Froch just overwhelmed Kessler with his work rate and heart. Ironically, Froch has been winning his last fights by looking like Joe Calzaghe...who he seems to hate lol. Nothing about that fight however made me think he should fight Ward again. I think Ward will put it on him even worse.

This was agreat fight. Its very satisfying to see two top guys in their prime fighting eachother. Not only are they both in the top 3 of their division, they are both very evenly matched guys. Like Canelo/Trout, its a treat to see this type of fight. Both of these guys left something in that ring the other night. It was much more of a war than their 1st fight. Froch is a beast. Kessler, I think is closer to the tail end of his prime than Froch is. I though Froch won at least 8 rounds to 4. I would love to see them do it again. Initially, I rerally didnt want to see Ward/Froch II, because I thought Andre was so dominant the first time. Now, I wouldnt mind seeing it at all. What of the talk of Froch fighting Hopkins next?? Wouldnt mind seeing that too.

Ward trying to put all their fighters to sleep I see lol...Froch has options but to me his safest one is Kessler, if he fights Hopkins or Ward, he'll get dominated IMO

Shit! What round(s) did that happen? I did not see evidence of a close stoppage. The ref was Pete Pedroski out of Chicago. Not experienced enough IMO for a big fight like that.

It was one of the late rounds that Froch hurt Kessler a bit...could've easily been the 12th round, since Kessler had his way with Froch in the 11th i believe. I mean the motherf*cker was in position to stop it, as if Kessler had nothing to offer in return. He was slipping punches and all. Weird stuff, but I know for sure that I would've lost it, had he stopped it.
