on the contrary, he's already avoided the rematch once. and when the world wanted to see him fight someone of worth after Calzaghe, he waited almost two years until the Super Six to step up, only to flee the tournament after the first two fights proved much more difficult than he expected and made his 'favourite' status appear laughable. we're yet to see him in a fight of real worth since then, almost three years on.
fortunately, i'm a man of keen discernment, so i was never sold on Kessler, but if i were one of those who ever believed in him i would be mightily disappointed by how things have turned out. Mikkel's career sucks, my friends.
