Mikkel Kessler: I have a new, better style for Carl Froch

Scott Heavey

Mikkel Kessler says he'll surprise doubters with a new, better approach to Carl Froch tomorrow, as he hopes to repeat his 2010 win.

Mikkel Kessler dismisses the idea that he's not the same fighter he was three years ago, and says that he's got a better style now to deal with tomorrow's opponent, Carl Froch:

"He said he was better than the last time. I said I'm 10 times better this time than I was the last time. ... I feel like I've been working on my technical boxing skills very much for the last two years and that's why I have stopped my opponents so fast and I feel good this way. I feel I have a new style but better. I think it's better for Carl now."

Kessler (46-2, 35 KO) is the slight underdog for this fight, despite his win over Froch in 2010. The feeling is that Froch has perhaps improved since then, while Kessler has been largely inactive and hasn't faced any top opponents, beating Mehdi Bouadla, Allan Green, and Brian Magee since he fought Froch, followed by his withdrawal from the Super Six World Boxing Classic, where Froch eventually finished as runner-up to Andre Ward.
