Carl: I'll star in a Frochy horror show.

Byline: Frank Haynes

CARL FROCH last night predicted his rematch with Mikkel Kessler will be "vicious and barbaric".

The Nottingham brawler has waited three years for revenge after Kessler handed him his first pro defeat Froch, 35, is slight favourite to win in London's O2 Arena with the WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles at stake - but isn't over-confident.

He said: "This is a tough job, Kessler will be fit and strong.

"He's talking about this maybe being his last fight and people are looking at that as a negative.

"But I'm looking at that as a negative from my point of view because that means he's going to turn up and just leave it all in the ring and have one last hurrah.

"I know it's going to be tough, it's going to be brutal, it could be quite vicious and barbaric.

"Both of us are in there to do a job, we're both strong warriors at the top of our game so it's a 50-50 fight.

"I'm confident I'm going to win. I know how to beat Kessler but he'll probably tell you exactly the same. I've waited three years for this and achieved a lot in the time since."
