[QUOTE=knockoutkid;11002758]The German is a stiff on the inside, that title is as good as gone.[/QUOTE] I don't know, Kess was a statue vs. Ward so lets just see who shows up this time.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;11002238]He is not slick. He's a tough cookie who works hard and he carries a decent pop.[/QUOTE] His face healed well then. Havn't seen him fight.

The winner of this fight should face Lucian Bute for the right to meet Andre Ward later on down the line. (assuming of course that Bute beats Glen Johnson and that Ward beats Froch)

The German is a stiff on the inside, that title is as good as gone.

[QUOTE=Mr. Invincible;11002223]Cool. Thanks. The German has an impressive record, I hope this is a good fight. I think the Stieglitz looks a little green and baby faced. Maybe he is slick and can give Kess some problems and we see…
