If this fight happened right after the first one I would pick Kessler hands down but I just can't see him winning at this point in time.

BOL in this bet. I may just play under 11.5 rounds for fun.

you're absolutley right. Kessler had potentially carreer ending injuries!
this is a long shot. a lot of unknowns...

Gennady Golovkin should definitely be on that list. Probably in the top 5. I would love to see him against kid chocolate if it wasn't for the hbo/showtime bullshit. I kind of feel bad for quillen actually because he has no good fights available at 160 with showtime.

That was a great fight. I thought it was closer than the the HBO crew seemed to think (and the consistently awful Adelaide Byrd), but that was all you could ask for in a prizefight.

I hope Kessler doesn't retire. One of my favorites.

Andre seems to be open to fighting froch again. I hope its in the UK just because of the amazing atmosphere and froch will need any advantage he can get.

Froch's already planting seeds for a Ward fight

Ward was pissed, couldn't even answer Jim's question

Kessler had more in the tank then I thought. I thought it was going to be a wipeout after 3 rounds.

Froch fights so amateur...like if you were to search up a random youtube fight video but he gets the job done with his chin, power, will.

The way he throws his right hand and left hook...he is susceptible to a highlight real counter KO

very good fight

I had Froch winning by a few rounds. The one judge who had it 118-110 is crazy.

Froch wants one more for a rubber match. He wants that match ASAP. Ward will have 2 fights later this year in September and December setting up for something big in 2014, (his words.) I guess a Froch/Ward rematch or Ward goes to 175 and cleans house there (or goes down to 160 for a Sergio showdown.)

I don't think there is anyway that ward could make 160. I'm really curious how long He can stay at 168

A few of the weeks HBO and Showtime go head-to-head.

July 13
Showtime

Bernard Hopkins vs. Karo Murat for Hopkins' IBF Light-heavyweight Title

September 7
Showtime

Danny Garcia vs. Lucas Matthysse for Garcia's WBC, WBA Super Light Welterweight and Ring Magazine titles.
Lamont Peterson vs. Zab Judah for Peterson's IBF Light Welterweight Championship


September 14
HBO PPV
(October 12 if Mayweather/Showtime keep the date. Will go head-to-head with Canelo if he fights and Floyd does not.)
Timothy Bradley vs. Juan Manuel Marquez for Bradley's WBO welterweight title
Showtime PPV
Floyd Mayweather vs. TBA or Canelo Alvarez vs. TBA


September 28
Showtime

Miguel Cotto vs. Victor Ortiz


September
HBO

Andre Ward vs. TBA


October 5
Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Povetkin for Klitschko's IBF, WBO and WBA Super Heavyweight titles.


November 23

December 7
Showtime

Amir Khan vs. Devon Alexander for Alexander's IBF Welterweight title

Boxing won't have another marque match-up until 2 weeks down the line when HBO and Showtime go head-to-head in Dawson/Stevenson and Maidana/Lopez. But, I think the undercards on both events will steal the show. Lara/Angulo and Gamboa/Perez.

Maidana/Lopez is going to be fun.

I think it's going to be Mayweather/Khan. That should be fun as well for the first few rounds.

Froch should stay away from Hopkins and go after a Ward rematch in the UK.

What's up with Andre Dirrell?
