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.

Features

Derry Mathews

It can be rather strenuous watching a Derry Mathews fight. Like a penalty shootout in football, a Mathew’s fight squeezes enough drama, tension, and unpredictability into a short duration so his popularity and fight frequency is rightfully high. Next up for the Liverpool veteran is another chance at domestic glory as Walsall’s Martin Gethin put his Lonsdale lightweight belt on the line at the Liverpool Olympia on May 10th.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
