Carl Froch: "I Want To Decapitate Mikkel Kessler"

Boxing Scene Mark Vester8th July, 2009

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch is dreaming of a unification showdown with WBA champion Mikkel Kessler. Both fighters are slated to be part of Showtime's super middleweight tournament. In their first bouts of the tournament, Froch is due to meet Andre Dirrell, while Kessler is being placed against Andre Ward in November.

Froch is tired of hearing about Kessler.

"I keep hearing about Kessler so he's in my veins now - I want to go out there and decapitate him. I want to knock him out in style and then see what people have to say for themselves about me. It's looking like late September or maybe early to mid-October. That'll be six months from when I fought Taylor but you know what it's like with politics in boxing," Froch told The Sun.

Froch admits that Kessler deserves to be ranked higher than him. He still wants to challenge the "viking warrior" to set the record straight on which of them is better.

"Kessler's had more fights than me so he deserves to be ranked higher. I'm honest enough to admit that but I'm a proud warrior and I want to take him on and take his scalp. His only loss was against Joe Calzaghe so you can justify his ranking - but I'll beat him, that's for sure," Froch said.
