Take a look to see what was said, how the fighters look, and more.
IBF CHAMPION CARL FROCH:
“It doesn’t get any better than this… to be involved in a fight of this magnitude at this scale against a fighter like Mikkel Kessler at this venue…I could almost explode.
“I feel shaky and nervous but also confident and strong.
“I am so sharp. I will enjoy it, I will leave absolutely everything in the ring, heart, soul, guts, tears and blood if necessary.”
WBA CHAMPION MIKKEL KESSLER:
“A lot of people said I am crazy to come to London and fight him in his hometown because I have already beaten him once. But you know what, this is the fight I want to fight, I don’t see any bigger fight in the world right now.
“I am a man of my word and I shook his hand and I said I am going to fight you in your hometown and that is why I am here.
“I want to show him and all the fans that I am better than him in his hometown, too. And I want his belt, I have never had the IBF belt.”
