2010-04-24 Mikkel Kessler w pts 12 Carl Froch, MCH Messe Centre, Herning, Denmark - WBC. Referee: Michael Griffin. Scorecards: 115-113, 117-111, 116-112.

Due to fight Allan Green in the next leg of the ‘Super Six’ tournament, Kessler was forced to withdraw from the contest at the end of August due to an eye injury which affected his vision. Vacating his WBC title at the same time and given ‘emeritus’ status, he was told that he would be given the opportunity of regaining his belt when fully fit again.

Following that, the WBC announced that Andre Ward and Andre Dirrell would meet for the vacant title, but after much protest Froch was matched against Arthur Abraham to find a successor.
