WBA Super-Middleweight Champion Mikkel Kessler (46-2, 35 KOs) today conducted a media work-out in his gym in Copenhagen, Denmark. On May 25, the Viking Warrior will collide with IBF Champion Carl Froch (30-2, 22 KOs) in front of a sell-out crowd at the O2 Arena in London.
“I defeated him in the first fight and I will defeat him again,” Kessler said. “I don´t mind fighting him in his backyard, true champions fight all over the world. I have fought in Wales, Australia, Germany and the USA, no crowd can intimidate me. I know what I have to do to leave the ring victorious.”
Kessler has been working hard with coach Jimmy Montoya, who has been in Denmark since March. “Mikkel´s in great shape,” Montoya said. “This will be a good, a very hard fight. Carl Froch is a hell of a fighter, but so is Mikkel. You can´t predict knock-outs, they just happen, but let me tell you one thing, Mikkel will win by knock-out!”
Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: “I´ve never seen Mikkel in his fight mode so early before a fight. It´s 33 days until he will be going to war with Froch again. You can see from his mood already now that he will put everything on the line that night. And Mikkel will win again.”
