Kessler: Me Against Bute, You Might Says It's Revenge

By Chris LaBate

Former super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler has no problem with going to Montreal for a fight with IBF champion Lucian Bute. Kessler is going to take a tune-up fight before the summer. Renan St-Juste has been mentioned as a possible opponent for Kessler's comeback. Kessler anticipates big business in Montreal, with a storyline of revenge. Kessler knocked out Montreal's Eric Lucas in 2006.

"You might say it's revenge, but I'm not scared of any opponent, and he can't beat me anywhere. Lucian is a very good boxer, who must fight in important matches if he wants to reach the top. I always thought of him as a great boxer. I would not be afraid to come to Montreal. I can fight anywhere. I think I would do very well against Bute," said Kessler.

I'll be shocked if Bute fights a live opponent anytime soon.
