MASHANTUCKET, CT - APRIL 25:  Carl Froch celeb...Carl Froch‘s Saturday night super six fight with Mikkel Kessler will go ahead despite the travel disruption across Europe caused by the volcanic ash cloud, a spokesman for Froch has said. 
 

A no-fly zone has been in place over much of Europe since last week, but the spokesman said that Saturday’s fight in Herning, Denmark, will take place.

The fight, which is part of the Super Six tournament, will see Froch defend his WBC super-middleweight belt against former champion Kessler.

One option could see the Nottingham fighter fly to Demark by helicopter to take on Kessler.
Froch is determined to become the first man to knock out the Dane.

“He hasn’t got a chance against me,” Froch said. “It makes for a humdinger. Kessler is going to be knocked out for the first time in his career, unless he’s a lot tougher than I already think he is.”

Froch, who is unbeaten in 26 professional encounters, will be making the third defence of his world title against Kessler, who was outpointed by Wales’s ex-world champion Joe Calzaghe in 2007.
