Carl Froch And Mikkel Kessler Come Face-To-Face At Weigh-In (PICTURES)

24/05/2013 14:41 BST

Carl Froch will go toe-to-toe with conqueror Mikkel Kessler tomorrow night determined to overturn his 2010 defeat by the Dane and secure his legacy as one of Britain's all-time greats.

Both men made the 12 stone weight at the first time of asking, with Froch boasting a one pound weight advantage, scaling 11st 13lb 9oz, while Kessler was 11st 12lb 7oz.

The 35-year-old IBF super-middleweight champion meets WBA title holder Kessler in a rematch of their thrilling war in Denmark three years ago, in which the home fighter edged a unanimous decision after 12 brutal rounds.

Since then Froch has embarked a superb run of form against elite opposition, becoming a three time world champion by beating the likes of Arthur Abraham and Lucian Bute.

The calm before the storm

Tomorrow he has the chance to effectively erase the blot on his record against Kessler, the only man other than Andre Ward to have got the better of him as a professional.

"It's definitely about securing my legacy," Froch said.

"We talk about legacy but he's one of the only two fighters to win a decision against me and it was in a close fight that could have gone either way.

"If that fight had been in England then there is a big argument to be made that I would have won the fight.

"But instead it took place away from home on foreign soil and I didn't get the nod. So it would be nice to rectify that loss and redeem myself, if you like, and set the record straight.

"It's the biggest night of my life and my career so far because it's going to bring my whole career to a pinnacle."
