As the build-up to Froch v Kessler II, at the London O2 Arena reaches a crescendo, Froch remains pretty convinced that he can reverse the defeat Kessler inflicted upon him in the first encounter between the two pugilists.

Speaking to the media, Froch believes that he has the punch-power to end this encounter early on remarking,

?On Saturday night I cannot see Kessler lasting the effing distance with me.?

?I apologize for swearing and I know my intentions sound horrible but that is what this fight against him means to me after I lost our first bout.?

?I am going to leave everything in the ring so that when I come out I can tell myself there are no excuses, fans will know I gave it all I could.?

?But when I am catching Kessler with quality punches, I am going to go for the finish. I want to take him out early.?

?I want to put the record straight. That?s how I feel inside.?

I?m not sure Kessler will be that easy to get rid off, especially as he?s already proven to be a world-class operative. But something tells me Froch is really fired up for this one and perhaps, just perhaps, he can provide the finish he craves.
