Kessler Glad To Be Back, Bouadla Confident of Upset

WBC Super-Middleweight World Champion Emeritus Mikkel Kessler (43-2, 32 KOs) and WBO #5 Mehdi Bouadla (22-3, 10 KOs) participated in a media work-out today in Copenhagen, Denmark. On Saturday, the two fighters will come face-to-face at renowned PARKEN Stadium. It will be the Viking Warrior´s first fight since an eye injury forced him to pull out of the Super Six World Boxing Classic.

“I have really missed the action in the ring,” the Danish national hero told reporters after today´s session with coach Jimmy Montoya. “I am in great shape and I am thrilled to be back. I have been working hard with Jimmy. He has pushed me through a lot of demanding sparring sessions. I´m ready for Bouadla. He is a tough guy who will be coming at me from the first bell, but I am well prepared.”

Bouadla said he has travelled to Denmark to shock the boxing world. “I am here to win,” he stated. “I know Kessler is a great champion and a great fighter but he has been out of the ring for too long. His long break will be a problem for him. This is my chance to make my name known around the world. I will make the most of it.”

The Viking Warrior´s comeback will be shown by TV2 in Denmark, with US premium TV network SHOWTIME also broadcasting the fight ahead of the Super Six World Boxing Classic Semifinal between former Kessler victim Carl Froch, now the WBC Super-Middleweight Champion, and Glen Johnson.

didn't know this was this weekend. Glad to see it will be on Showtime before the Froch-Johnson bout.
