Froch targets Kessler rematch
- From the section Boxing
New IBF world champion Carl Froch targets a home town rematch with Dane Mikkel Kessler after the Nottinghamshire fighter became a three-time world champion with Saturday's defeat of Lucian Bute.
The super-middleweight described himself as "a man on a mission" in his five round victory after a "flat" performance when beaten in his previous outing by Andre Ward.
Froch reveals that he and his "friend" Kessler have a "gentleman's agreement" to fight again in Froch's home town after he was outpointed by Kessler in Denmark in April 2010.
