Ali chats to Boxing World Champion Carl Froch.

The Nottingham fighter takes on recently dethroned WBA champion Mikkel Kessler in Herning, Denmark on April 24th.
Kessler will be looking to bounce back having been unexpectedly beaten by Andre Ward in the first phase of this ground breaking tournament.

Froch, unbeaten in 26 professional fights, is looking to become the first person to knock out the dangerous Dane, who has never been beaten on home soil!

“Anybody can be knocked out; I’ve knocked out people who’ve never been knocked out before…first and foremost I’m trying to get the win.”

Carl offered some interesting insights into how the competition may progress and was complimentary about Jermain Taylor’s replacement Allan Green, saying that the contender packed real punching power.

“He’s a big puncher, he’s fast and you know he’s a good fighter.”

On the upcoming fight with Kessler, Froch was adamant that he will need to be busier than in his last outing against Andre Dirrell if he is to come out of the contest victorious.

“Because it’s away from home and not at my place, not in my home town…you can’t rely on the close rounds going to you…I need to make sure I win the rounds clearly…but I’m hoping to get to him and knock him out, and get three points in the Super Six series”.

So to Herning it is, where a knockout victory will put Froch through to the semi-finals in a tournament that he believes will see the champion emerge an international superstar!
