Froch Denied unification fight


Recommended Posts

Carl Froch was denied a world title unification clash after his next opponent Mikkel Kessler was left complaining about the decision to stop him in the 11th round against Andre Ward.


Kessler lost his WBA world super-middleweight title to American Ward in Oakland, California, when the bout was stopped due to cuts above the Dane's eyes caused by headbutts.


Ward was ahead on all three scorecards as he won his first world title to deprive Froch of the chance to become Britain's first undisputed super-middleweight world champion since Joe Calzaghe outpointed Kessler in 2007.


Kessler said: "I would have liked the fight to go on another minute. I knew I could have continued."


Nottingham's unbeaten Froch, 31, will instead defend his WBC title against Kessler in Copenhagen in March.
