Photo: Kessler Sparring With Sulecki For Froch Rematch

By Luke Furman

WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler (46-2, 35 KOs) is sparring hard with undefeated Polish prospect Maciej Sulecki (13-0, 3 KOs), who many consider to be a top boxer in Poland. Kessler will look to get a repeat victory over IBF champion Carl Froch (30-2, 22 KOs) on May 25th at the O2 Arena in London. Kessler won a twelve round unanimous decision over Froch in Denmark as part of the Super Six tournament in 2010.

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13223106]Kessler was probably at his career worst coming into the fight against Froch. He has improved a lot since then, his jab is sharper, he's gone back to the straight 1-2 as you saw against Magee. Uses body punches again…

@BennyST: I don't think Kessler is on a decline. He has been, but is improving now. The Post-Calzaghe Kessler of 2008-2009 (against Perdomo, Häusler, Ward) was terrible to watch. Problems with his promoter and the impaired vision. In a article…
