By Per Ake Persson

According to the European Boxing Union, EBU super middleweight champ James DeGale (11-1, 8KOs) will make a mandatory defense of his title against Italian veteran and former WBC king Cristian Sanavia (45-5-1, 13KOs) on April 21 in Denmark.
 
There is a well circlulated rumor that DeGale-Sanavia will move forward as the co-headliner to a possible main event between Mikkel Kesler (44-2, 23KOs) and WBA interim-super middleweight ruler Brian Magee (36-4-1, 25KOs), who recently knocked out Kessler's countryman Rudy Markussen at Brindby Hallen.

But there is a problem with that rumor, Kessler is scheduled to face WBO champion Robert Stieglitz on April 14 - a fight that's been finalized since late 2011. However, there are rumors from various sources that this fight won´t happen.
 
"I have seen it, you have seen it, we are not the listed promoters [of DeGale-Sanavia] and I can't tell you anything," said Sauerland Event's CEO Chris Meyer with a big smile.

[QUOTE=gingeralbino]Easy nights work for Magee, going to Denmark and KOing their SMWs is what he does best. :headbang::lol1: Kessler's ribs are in for a bashing.[/QUOTE] :lol1: I really like Magee and the shot he landed on Markussen was very pretty.

comment by BattlingNelson, on 02-26-2012
[QUOTE=belna]Maybe Sauerland is sure that Kessler would be named Ward's mandatory if he fights Magee. Kessler's goal seems to have his revenge over the American.[/QUOTE] I cannot see that. Magee holds the WBA interim bogus belt which comes in at about no. 3 in the internal pecking order of WBA wo...

[QUOTE=taansend]To build a Kessler DeGale bout??? Does DeGales have a promoter at the moment?[/QUOTE] I honestly think that Kessler has bigger fish to fry than James DeGale.
