Froch can't wait; sport ROUND-UP.

BOXING: Carl Froch is relishing a war with fellow world champion Mikkel Kessler after beginning his Super Six World Boxing Classic campaign with an "unsatisfying" split-decision win over elusive American Andre Dirrell.

Froch retained his WBC super-middleweight title for the second time in Nottingham with a close-fought but ultimately uninspiring win.

The 32-year-old said: "It was unsatisfying for a warrior like myself who likes to get involved in a fight and a trade-off.

"I like to stand and fight and I think Mikkel Kessler will do that more which will give the fans and TV viewers what they want."
