Kotelnik is Already Planning To Return To The Ring

By Bill Kozloff,

Former junior welterweight champion Andreas Kotelnik (31-4-1, 13KOs), who recently retired, is already planning to return at the end of the year.

Kotelnik, 35-years-old, announced his retirement last month, but now he wants to have a fight before the end of the year. The former champion has been inactive since a close decision loss to Devon Alexander in August 2010.

"I plan to hold a fight this year. Where and when I'm going to fight, I still can not say. There is nothing concrete that I'm able to say about a future opponent," Kotelnik said.

[QUOTE=AndNewChampion;12292108]Froch is slightly less than Kessler. [B]Joe would abuse Froch[/B], too fast, too quick on his feet and Froch would get lost. Remember Froch just beat Taylor, and since then? Froch does not like boxers, he loves brawls like Pascal.…
