ABSTRACT
CARL FROCH dashed from 14 rounds of sparring to the birth of his second child as he balanced fatherhood with preparing his world title re-match with Mikkel Kessler on Saturday. The IBF super-middleweight champion was about to leave home in Nottingham for his gym in Sheffield when his partner Rachael Cordingley started having contractions. Froch said: 'Rachael went out of her mind but I had to leave and I told her I would be back about four or five and I hoped she wouldn't have Natalia before then. 'When I finished sparring I shot down the M1. I got there [hospital] at 5.30 and the baby was born at seven o'clock. So happy days.' Froch has always insisted that the birth of his daughter would not disrupt his focus on avenging that narrow defeat by Kessler in Denmark three years ago. 'I have to keep my focus,' he added. 'The main thing is that mother and baby are healthy. I picked them up from hospital the next day and went back to business.' Froch is irked that two fellow British boxers, Nathan Cleverly and George Groves, have been to Denmark to help Kessler with sparring but says: 'I wouldn't have done that if one of them had been coming up to a big fight but I don't think it will do Mikkel much good. Neither of these two are in my league.' Froch-Kessler is live on Saturday night, Sky Sports Box Office HD.
