Golovkin's Promoter Interested in Kessler Clash

Before Mikkel Kessler started his press conference in Copenhagen to announce his comeback, an interested party had made a call to inquire about a potential fight.

According to Danish tabloid Ekstrabladet, Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions reached out to Sauerland Event, to discuss the possibility of a clash between Kessler and IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin for a July date in Las Vegas. The fight would obviously have to take place at the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds, although Kessler has stated in several interviews that he might entertain a catch-weight.

The possibility of fighting in July was immidiately shot down, as Kessler needs 4 to 6 months to get into fighting shape. Kessler has a tentative target period of October/November for his next fight and there is interest on his side in facing Golovkin.

Promoter Kalle Sauerland stated:

“To make such a big fight you’ve got to know what television networks are interested. HBO is crazy about Golovkin and Viasat would of course want to showcase such a fight to the Danish audience. This would be a treat to the Danish fans and to fans around the world. This is definitely something we will work on.”

The Danish paper believes Kessler will require a purse of at least $4 million dollars for such a fight.

“Of course I cannot comment on specific numbers when we are not even in a negotiating stage, but it will be expensive to lure Kessler to America. Much more expensive than having the Viking Warrior fight in Denmark,” Sauerland says.

[QUOTE=pedrito]I means seriously... Why in the world would GGG risk his current popularity fighting a technically excellent guy with an ugly and akward style, who never comes out of his backyard, has little to no following, and who nobody except hardcore boxing fans know? Why would he? Especi...

I thought he had business to take care of at 160

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]But Chavez Jr and Kessler do make sense, right? :thinking: Quack quack.[/QUOTE] Of course they do, both are tough but winnable fights that'd bring a load of money and raise GGGs profile considerably. Ward is the kinda high risk fight that Golovkin should take once his r...

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]"Golovkin’s built his reputation on saying he’ll fight anybody. I raise my hand and say I’m somebody. Let’s do it. nothing. And then they circumvent and try to go to Chavez. First they said we’re going to stay at 160 and clean it out. Then Chavez fell through and now it’s som...

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson]Yeah. Why bother answering? :ugh: If you had read the article, you'd have known that Kessler isn't ready to return before late autumn. Ward on the other hand, has been looking for a fight for a very long time. They even asked Sauerland for an offer which they flat out t...
