On Saturday night, all of Europe will be excited about the super middleweight World Title fight between the 6’ 1” Carl “The Cobra” Froch (30-2-0, 22 KOs) from Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom and  Mikkel “Viking Warrior” Kessler (46-2-0, 35 KOs) from Copenhagen, Denmark. The two champions who did so well in Showtime’s Super Six Tournament, Froch, 35, and Kessler, 32, will be fighting for both the IBF and WBA World Titles. Some of that excitement has to be rubbing off on the U. S. boxing fans and of course Showtime had the foresight to buy up the rights to show that fight card in the U. S.

Here is your pre-fight Press Conference plus a look back at their first fight on April 24, 2010.
