Haye Picks Kessler To Win, Hopes For a Froch Rematch

By Luke Furman

Former heavyweight champion David Haye is picking Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33KOs) to defeat Allan Green (31-3, 21KOs) on Saturday night at Parken in Copenhagen, Denmark. Kessler makes his debut at light heavyweight. The vacant WBC silver title is on the line.

Haye hopes to see a future rematch one day, between Kessler and Carl Froch, who faces IBF champion Lucian Bute on May 26th in Nottingham.

"Green can bomb and has a lot of strength, but Kessler is simply superior in boxing terms. I think he will outbox Green and stop him in one of the last rounds. It will be an exciting showdown. Kessler is 'for real', and he delivered a hell of a fight against my friend Carl Froch. I hope for a rematch between the two at a later date, but first he has to handle  things here," Haye said.
