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.
