Mikkel Kessler did a little road work this afternoon outside Herning, Denmark with physical trainer Thomas Macon just two days before his Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown with WBC Super Middleweight Champ Carl Froch on Saturday, April 24 on SHOWTIME® (9 p.m., ET/PT, same-day coverage) from MCH Arena, in Herning, Denmark.

Denmark’s Kessler has been living and training in a remote countryside hotel to escape “Mikkel-Mania,” the media frenzy surrounding the Group Stage 2 fight in Denmark.  Kessler is coming off of a Group Stage 1 upset loss to 2004 U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Andre Ward in which he lost the WBA 168-pound title.

Kessler (42-2, 32 KOs), who has never lost a fight in his hometown of Denmark, needs a victory to get on the board in the cumulative points-based tournament.  He’s looking to defeat Froch (26-0, 20 KOs) on Saturday night and earn back the WBC belt he lost to Joe Calzaghe in 2007.

The inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic is a ground-breaking, six-fighter tournament from SHOWTIME Sports featuring the class of the super middleweight (168-pound) division. The field is comprised of world renowned fighters competing in a points-based round-robin tournament for the inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic Cup
