According to Bjarne Nielsen, who often breaks exclusive Team Palle news in Ekstrabladet, a Danish tabloid, has reported that talks are taking place for a February 28 unification showdown between WBC super middleweight champ Carl Froch and WBA champ Mikkel Kessler.

The report notes that Mogens Palle, Kessler's promoter, was approached by **** Hennessy, who promotes Froch - and the two sides have been talking the fight over. Froch won the vacant title on December 6 from Jean Pascal. The mandatory to his belt is Jermain Taylor. Kessler, a two-time champion and regarded as the best at the weight, has one loss on his record via decision to Joe Calzaghe.

This is a fight I would very much like to see. Kessler is going to be hitting Froch with some brutal punches. Froch's sturdy chin is going to get tested. I like Kessler in this one.

If this fight is indeed made, it'll be interesting to see where Jermain Taylor finds his next opponent. Bute maybe.

Jermain should be jumping all over a fight with Froch. Kessler-Froch shouldn't even be in discussion phase. Froch said he wanted 70 to Taylor's 30; he must be delusional if he thinks that should or is gonna be the case.

Taking more money on a **** fight because he is to chicken **** to fight froch
Taylor is the bigger name. Even Lacy name is bigger. If Froch really wanted the Taylor fight he would of came to the US for it. But he didn't. Asking for 70-30 to fight Taylor IMO is a way out of not making the fight

Carl Froch is so 1 dimensional he makes Kelly Pavlik look like a complete fighter.

Kessler can be hurt though (even Slappy Joe hurt him), so Froch maintains a puncher's chance. That's ALL he has however.

Froch is just a belt holder, and like so many others that is NOT enough to make you a big name.

Hell, if Taylor was asking 70-30 in his favor I wouldnt think thats outrageous. Taylor is a former undisputed middleweight champion, with fights against Hopkins and Kelly Pavlik.

I know you're a fan and that mate but can you not see how easily Calzaghe would beat Froch? It wouldn't be even nrealy competitive.

That's just absurd. Froch needs a reality check
Yeah he does. Taylor has 8 or more fights on HBO or HBO PPV, Froch has none. Taylor has had 6 fights for the unified undisputed middleweight championship, Froch has had none at any weight. Taylor has fought against 2 future hall of famers in 3 different fights, Froch none. Taylor has held 4 title at one time, this is Froch first title. So for him to even utter (even whisper) 70/30 is blatant disrespect.
Taylor has been avoiding froch from day 1 froch wanted to fight and instead he fought lacy (what a pussy) and now hes no1 for a shot a carls wbc and the fight still wont happen

Why would Jermain fight Froch for less money? He's already had all the major titles. He's fighting for money now so Taylor avoiding Froch is laughable.
By Froch? No. Taylor to much for him
Exactly. Taylor will beat that ass when they meet and it'll be decisive.
