The super-middleweight title clash between Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler will take place on May 25 at London's O2 Arena.

Carl Froch's super-middleweight title fight with Mikkel Kessler has been arranged for May 25 at London's O2 Arena.

The eagerly-anticipated fight was announced last month, with a number of venues in line to stage the bout between the IBF super-middleweight champion and the WBA regular super-middleweight holder.

Nottingham's Capital FM Arena was considered, along with several football stadiums, but it has now been revealed that the O2 Arena will host the rematch between two of the weight division's biggest names.

Kessler came out victorious in their first bout in Denmark in 2010, edging out Froch by unanimous decision.
