Mikkel Kessler-Allan Green Deal Reached For May 19th

By Rick Reeno and Per Ake Persson

BoxingScene.com has been advised that a deal was reached for Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33KOs) to make his light heavyweight debut against Allan Green (31-3, 21KOs) on May 19th at Parken in Copenhagen, Denmark. The WBC's silver title will be on the line.

The two fighters were scheduled to face each other in 2010, as part of the Super Six super middleweight tournament, but an eye injury forced Kessler to withdraw from the entire competition.

Lou DiBella, who promotes Green, confirmed the information to BoxingScene and he likes his boxer's chances in the fight. By the time the fight happens, Kessler will be coming off an eleven month layoff, and before that he was out for over a year.

"I actually think right now, at 175-pounds, I give Allan Green a chance to win. I think at 175 it favors Green. He was a dead man at 168, but he's not a dead man at 175. Let's see how Kessler does at 175," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

Allen green's Career is at the embarrassing point where he is considered a win for any contender a sure win. Green isn't good enough to challenge a contender and is a safe fight for an easy win. Green gets paid…

All I can say is that Allan Green has a great team. They got that dude in the Super 6 and now this fight with Kessler when Green hasn't done a damn thing good in boxing for a while now.…

Kesslers has had three big fights-Calzage who destroyed him. Ward who embarrassed Kessler made him give up. And Froch a close win if that. kessler is not very good and so soft and limited and weak. Just a sad way…
