FROCH SAYS HE'S IN GREAT SHAPE FIVE WEEKS BEFORE FIGHT
Press Release: IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch believes he is in the shape of his life as the countdown to his blockbuster rematch with Mikkel Kessler in London on May 25th draws ever closer. There’s less than five weeks until Froch gets the chance to exact revenge on the Dane. Tucked behind closed doors in Nottingham, England, Froch was in a bullish mood following a gruelling fifteen round training session with trainer Robert McCracken. “I am exactly where I want to be with May 25th beginning to come into view,” said Froch. “I am getting that tingle in my hands and down my spine now, I know that feeling well and it means that I’m ready to fight. It is such a huge occasion for me but it’s nights like this where I thrive and stand up to be counted. I feel like everything is clicking in training and sparring has been fantastic, I couldn’t ask to be in a better place than I am right now.” McCracken added, “He’s very, very sharp. To be in the shape he is in five weeks out is a very good sign. He’s in superb condition, he always is – and there’s a hunger in his eyes that I can remember before all his big wins, like Lucian Bute, Andre Dirrell and Jermain Taylor, with the same spitefulness in his pad work before them too. I’m very confident he’s going to do the business.” The May 25th co-feature is another rematch, a light heavyweight bout between Tony Bellew and Isaac Chilemba.
