Kessler Promises Impressive Showing Against Stieglitz

By Luke Furman

As reported several days ago on BoxingScene.com, WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (40-2, 23 KOs) of Germany will defend his title against Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33 KOs) April 14 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The fight was originally planned for November 5th, but Kessler suffered a severe hand injury during a sparring session and withdrew from the contest.

"I am extremely happy with receiving confirmation of the rescheduled date of the fight. As far as my injury, everything is moving in the right direction. I'm in shape all the time. After I fully recover from the injury, I will resume my training. In the end I promise to reward my fans for this unfortunate situation [with the fight being pushed back so far]. On April 14, they will witness a magnificent spectacle," said Kessler, a former WBA and WBC champion at 168.
