Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has labelled Saturday's super-middleweight world title fight between Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler as 'the biggest fight in Britain this decade'.

The hugely-anticipated showdown is a rematch of the pair's 2010 meeting in Denmark when Kessler won a unanimous decision after 12 rounds.

"It's by far the biggest fight I've been involved in," said Eddie Hearn.

"It's a fight between two huge names who are ready to go to war on Saturday in what will be the biggest fight this decade in Britain."
