Froch gets prime time TV slot

Carl Froch will appear on The Jonathan Ross Show at 9.20pm on ITV1 tomorrow night (April 6) to discuss his sold-out blockbuster rematch with Mikkel Kessler on May 25 at the O2 Arena in London, live on Sky Box Office in ‘Warriors’ Call’.

The Cobra is seven weeks away from the crunch clash with the Viking Warrior, and takes time out from his training schedule to join Hollywood stars Sir Ben Kingsley and Audrey Tautou on the sofa, with music provided by Alt-J.
Froch and Kessler revisit their epic battle of April 2010 when Kessler claimed the Nottingham star’s WBC super middleweight title in Herning, Denmark after 12 brutal and enthralling rounds of action.
Kessler’s WBA belt and Froch’s IBF title are on the line in London, with chief support on a massive night of boxing coming from unbeaten super middleweight contender George Groves.

Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
