Mikkel Kessler's Boxing Future is Still Undecided

By Per Ake Persson

The Viking Warrior, former super middleweight king Mikkel Kessler (46-3, 35KOs), became a father for the first time around Christmas. A private matter it may seem, but Kessler is on the record telling reporters that he would never enter the ring as a parent. However, he was recently interviewed in BT and Kessler left the door open for a continued career but nothing is decided yet. Kessler has been out of the ring, and the limelight, since losing a twelve round decision in a rematch with Carl Froch in May of last year.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;14166178]True, but it's a bit over the top comparing Kessler to Hagler. :)[/QUOTE] I compared how one ended his career and how one [I]may[/I] end his career. I did not compare fighters.

Hagler retired with a loss. I don't evaluate his abilities based on that last loss.

WAR KESSLER. He could probably beat Froch in another fight. In their last one it was still close and Kessler could hurt him.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;14165772]That's pretty shocking that a veteran of the sport with his experience would not know to pace himself properly in training camp.[/QUOTE] Well, I guess as age progresses something else decreases.
