Froch - Kesser re-match confirmed

Carl Froch finally appears to have got his wish with the news that Mikkel Kessler has agreed to fight him for a second time.
Kessler inflicted a first career defeat on Froch when the clashed in Denmark three years ago via a points decision.
Froch has been desperate for a re-match ever since, though a deadline set for Tuesday meant that, had a fight not been agreed, he would have had to have faced mandatory challenger Adonis Stevenson instead.
However, Froch and his promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed that they had reached an agreement for a fight in the UK with Kessler, with a venue to be announced.
“This is one for the ages," said 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."
Froch meanwhile was equally delighted and has promised boxing fans a memorable encounter against two foes who will not give an inch.
The Boxing betting is already struggling to separate the two, who are both equally matched in terms of strengths and career stats.
"First and foremost, I'm really pleased the fight has finally been arranged," said Froch. "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.
