Betting Shop: Kessler wants to take on Froch again
By Andrew Scott Tuesday, 3 September 2013 01:18
Mikkel Kessler wants to have a third fight with Carl Froch, and betting shops all over the world would certainly not mind seeing this happen.
Price per head sportsbooks learned that the Dane – who is a favourite with many betting shops – said that the fight he’s craving for is a decider, just over three months since Froch beat him on points at the O2 Arena, and many people with a betting site remember very well when this took place.
Betting shops can see that the loss left the record all square at 1-1 between both super-middleweight stars, and Kessler said that it would not be possible to turn down a third clash.
“I would do a third one,” he told Ringside – Froch-Kessler Special.
“But now I have to be honest; I have to take a vacation and think about things. But you always have to I think and it’s intelligent to be a little more wiser!
“Some other fighters take one or two fights too many. I have been fighting for so many years, and if I take a lot of beatings in my career it’s not good for my health – and that’s number one.
“Now I’ve got to be a father and so I better think about the future. But still… Froch III? That could happen!”
Both men then said immediately after their second fight that a third encounter could take place, and many people with a betting site are very eager to see this bout get underway.
However, Froch agreed to defend his WBA and IBF world titles against George Groves.
Price per head sportsbooks know that this means that any third meeting between the fighters would have to wait until 2014, but Kessler acknowledges that even a rematch with Andre Ward is not nearly as exciting as a decider, and he’s even ready to return to the scene of his loss.
“I would go back to London,” he said.
“I don’t care. Maybe not a neutral place because people wouldn’t recognise us or know about boxing – and people would have to travel. So I think we have to do it in London or in Copenhagen.
