Froch vs Kessler II weights: Froch 168, Kessler 167

Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler made weight for tomorrow's big rematch in London.

IBF super middleweight titlist Carl Froch and WBA titleholder Mikkel Kessler both made weight for tomorrow's big rematch in London, with Froch weighing in at 168 and Kessler at 167.

The two first met in 2010, with Kessler (46-2, 35 KO) winning a highly competitive decision at home in Denmark. Froch (30-2, 22 KO) will have home field advantage tomorrow at the O2 Arena, and is the favorite in the fight.

On the undercard, Tony Bellew and Isaac Chilemba also made weight for their rematch, a fight that has WBC light heavyweight title implications for the winner. Bellew (19-1-1, 12 KO) weighed in at 174½, while Chilemba (20-1-2, 9 KO) came in at 174¼. The two went to a disappointing draw on March 30, and decided to get right back to it with a rematch.

Also on the bill, George Groves (18-0, 14 KO) takes a stay-busy fight with Noe Gonzalez (30-2, 22 KO). While Gonzalez has a pretty record, it's empty, and he has losses to Felix Sturm (UD-12) and Adonis Stevenson (TKO-2) in his two steps up. Both fighters weighed in at 167 for the super middleweight fight.

BLH will have full live coverage tomorrow, starting early with the Sky Box Office show. HBO will air the main event live at 6:00 pm EDT, and then on replay at 10:00 pm EDT.
