Mikkel Kessler on Andre Ward: He Doesn't Have The Guts!

By Oscar Nielsen

On April 14th in Copenhagen, WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz will defend his title against former three time champion Mikkel Kessler. That hasn't stopped Kessler's promotor, Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event, from trying to set up a remacth between the Danish star and WBA/WBC champion Andre Ward, who defeated Kessler in the first stage of the Super Six tournament.

Kessler doesn't expect a Ward rematch to happen, because he doesn't expect Ward to fight him outside of the United States for any amount of money. Kessler wants to place his main focus on the fight with Stieglitz.

"Other names are being mentioned like Bernard Hopkins and Sergio Martinez, and I cannot see Ward leaving the United States for a fight. You can see that a lot of boxing fans are blasting Ward because he hasn't got the guts to leave his home base," Kessler told Sporten. "I've told Kalle not to involve me too much [in fight discussions]. My main focus is Robert Stieglitz on April 14."

Given the one sided result of the first fight, I really don't think a rematch is needed. However if Ward can make the 3-4 million Battling Nelson claimed, I say Ward go get that coin!

I would like to see a rematch...Kessler has a punchers chance however if the fight was resonably clean the result would be much the same. Sure Kessler Hasint got the best resume in the world but he has beaten some…

Headbutting and excessive holding are two of Wards greatest attributes (It's cheating)... Ward knows he will be in trouble if he is not able to hit and hold. Ward will stay in jokeland (thank god)
