Former WBA 168-pound Champ Mikkel Kessler participated in a light workout on Monday in Herning, Denmark, just five days before his Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown with WBC super middleweight champ Carl Froch on Saturday, April 24 onSHOWTIME® (9 p.m., ET/PT, same-day coverage) from MCH Arena, in Herning, Denmark.

Denmark’s Kessler will be counting on the support of his home fans when he challenges Nottingham, England’s Froch for the WBC 168-pound crown, a title he previously held before losing it to the retired Joe Calzaghe.   Kessler is hoping that home-field advantage prevails for the fifth straight fight in the super middleweight tournament.A packed crowd filled the Shopping Centret Herning, one of the biggest shopping centers in Denmark, located just a few kilometers from the site of Saturday’s world title fight.

After one round in the tournament, Froch (26-0, 20 KOs) has two points, while Kessler (42-2, 32 KOs), who has never lost a fight in his hometown of Denmark, needs a victory to get on the board.  Froch would become the tournament points leader with a win over Kessler.

The fight will be shown this Saturday, April 24 onSHOWTIME® (9 p.m., ET/PT, same-day coverage) from MCH Arena, in Herning, Denmark.
