Saturday night was a great night for combat sports. Whether it be the incredible UFC 160 event that delivered a number of devastating finishes or the boxing match out in London, fight fans got to see some incredible action. In the Carl Froch vs. Mikkel Kessler rematch that was three years in the making, Froch was the first to get off on the night, but Kessler answered in the middle rounds before Froch came back to finish the fight with momentum. Froch got the edge in a highly entertaining back-and-forth battle at the O2 Arena.
Froch’s win ties up the series with Kessler at one win a piece, as he advances to 31-2. All three judges scored the fight in favor of Froch (118-110, 116-112, 115-113).
With the win, Froch retained his IBF Super Middleweight championship, while claiming the WBA Super Middleweight title belt that previously belonged to Kessler.
