Kessler Preps For Stieglitz, Eyes Ward on Neutral Ground

by Przemyslaw Osiak

Former two-time champion Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33KOs) is already training for his next fight, scheduled on April 14th in Copenhagen against WBO super middleweight king Robert Stieglitz (41-2, 23KOs). Kessler is not taking Stieglitz for granted and expects a tough fight.

"He's strong and I know that. I know that we will win against Stieglitz but it will be a tough fight. I've fought the best in the world, but Stieglitz is a physically strong fighter and he has strength for all of the twelve rounds and you have to be in very good condition to beat him. That's very important," Kessler said.

One of the goals of Kessler is to obtain a rematch with WBA/WBC champion Andre Ward, who decisioned the Danish star in 2009.

"Of course I want a rematch with Ward, but I hope that this time he flies out of his country and flies to my country, or to a foreign or neutral place," Kessler said.

[QUOTE=RubenSonny;11774582]All paper belts which mean nothing.[/QUOTE] But IBF and WBO is the real deal or what are you talking about?

I have nothing against Kessler and he'll pretty much fight anyone but he has to get over the Ward fight. Seriously, Kessler has fought a lot of fights at home, granted Ward's never left but he won the Super Six…

Ward embarresses Kessler.

Hope Kessler finally gets Calzaghe's belt that he fought for in 2007. Afterwards he will have thin air in the SMW division. Doubt he can beat Ward, but one never knows.
