Betting Site: Hearn is eager to see Froch vs Kessler II fight

Betting site services found out that Froch was in Nottingham’s Market Square in a public workout as preparations for the super-middleweight unification fight reach a conclusion.
Promoter Hearn and many people with a betting shop are as keen as anyone to see the fight on Saturday.
“There’s huge anticipation ahead of the biggest fight of this decade,” he told Sky Sports.
“This is a war of a fight and the whole country can’t wait.
And betting site services also can’t wait to see what will happen when this fight gets underway.
“This is head and shoulders ahead of anything we’ve ever done, we sold 19,000 tickets in three hours and that was 20 weeks ago.
“You know what you’re going to get from Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler, they only know how to fight one way. I’m sure they’ll have their own tactics going into the fight but that will go out of the window once they start exchanging blows.
“There were 10,000 in the O2 for the Premier League darts last week so double that and add the hostility of a boxing crowd with 18,000 Brits and 1,000 Danes – it’s going to be a special atmosphere.”
Betting site services saw that a lot of the talk that took place over the weekend centered around George Groves helping Kessler in recent weeks with sparring sessions, apparently to Froch’s displeasure.
But Hearn would rather look on it as a positive for Groves, who will face Noe Gonzalez on the undercard, and many people with a betting shop also believe that it will be a good thing for the boxer.
“For George Groves, sparring with Kessler is great and I’m sure it’s going to improve his performance,” Hearn added. ”
“Some don’t like it but I wouldn’t look too much into that. George is in a big fight himself and maybe we heard some stories out of that camp as well!

“I don’t blame George for going out there and it fuels the fire for a potential Groves v Froch fight in the future which in time will surely happen.”
