Mikkel Kessler Ready to Face Carl Froch

Mikkel Kessler presented his new gym to the media today when he hosted an open training session in Copenhagen. The Viking Warrior cannot wait to get back in the ring and become world champion again. The 30-year-old will meet WBC Champion Carl Froch in the second round of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, and Kessler says he’s already looking forward to it. “I really had a bad night against Andre Ward, but I had a good rest, analyzed everything with my team and now I am ready for Froch,” he said. “I have just started my preparation with my new coach Jimmy Montoya. Things have been going really well. We are training very hard here in Copenhagen and will move camp to Berlin next week. I feel very hungry without a world title and I will take the WBC belt from Froch.”

Jimmy Montoya has no doubts that Kessler will bounce back. “Mikkel has so much talent and he will show it against Froch,” Montoya said. “In this tournament the best are fighting the best and obviously Froch is a very strong fighter but Mikkel is better and he will beat him in front of his home fans in April.”

Promoter Kalle Sauerland added: “That was not the real Mikkel Kessler in the ring against Ward. But Jimmy Montoya has already started to bring back the real Viking Warrior. The clash with Froch will certainly be an exciting one and I am 100 percent sure that Mikkel will notch his first three points in the Super Six, especially with the support of his Danish fans.”
