LONDON (AP) - Mikkel Kessler will fight Carl Froch in a super-middleweight rematch in Britain in a title bout.

No date or venue has been confirmed for a rematch of the 2010 fight that Kessler won on a unanimous points decision in his native Denmark.

The 33-year-old Kessler is the WBA champion and has won 46 of his 48 fights _ 35 by knockout. Froch (30-2, 22 KO) holds the IBF belt, which the British fighter took off Lucien Bute in May 2011.

Froch says “this is the fight that I want more than anything in the world.”

Kessler says Tuesday, “I don’t care where we fight _ I said anytime, anywhere.”
