With the recent announcement that WBA super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler has signed with German-based Suaerland Event, the proposed super middleweight tournament by Showtime is finally in place.
Kalle Sauerland told reporters that Kessler was heading to the United States on Monday, July 13, for press conference in New York. The same press conference that BoxingScene.com has been talking about for the last few days. The announcement of Showtime's super middleweight round robin tournament, which features WBC champion Carl Froch, Jermain Taylor, Andre Dirrell, Andre Ward and Arthur Abraham.
There is still no confirmation that every promoter has signed on but things are looking a lot better with Kessler's involvement. The tournament is slated to begin in October with Froch meeting Dirrell and Abraham meeting Taylor. Kessler is due to face Ward in November but he may choose to make his mandatory defense before that fight. He still has a lot of time to get the mandatory out of the way.
