David Haye feels defeat for Carl Froch against Mikkel Kessler could signal the end of the road for the Cobra.

Froch faces Kessler for the second time in his career and following his thrilling defeat to the Dane three years ago, expectation is high that the clash at the O2 Arena on Saturday will be a classic.

Haye firmly believes the pair will serve up a treat, as he feels it is the most exciting fight in 2013, but has warned Froch that defeat could knock him out of the super-middleweight big league.

"For one of them, this could be the last big, super fight of their career," Haye told Sky Sports. "For the other, a revenge shot at world No. 1 Andre Ward could be on the horizon.

"Basically, they have it all to play for."

Haye will be at ringside for the fight and is anticipating a classic. He said: "This fight will have everything. It involves two men who know each other well, have fought each other before - which always brings added spice - and who are both keen to add to their legacies before their time in boxing is up."
