Kessler Proves He’s A Force At Light-Heavyweight - Which Champ Should He Aim For?
By James Slater
Though he came in at a fraction below 170-pounds for his fight last night with Allan Green, and though he could certainly make the 168-pound limit easily enough if he wanted to, Mikkel Kessler showed us he is a genuine force at light-heavyweight. Kessler, a former three-time champ at super-middleweight, scored a brutal KO over Green, his left hook sending him into oblivion in the 4th-round.
Now the holder of the practically meaningless WBC “Silver” title at 175-pounds, the 33-year-old Dane will be looking for a genuine belt to make his own soon. And there are a few good-looking fights that he could get in the coming months.
KLESSER CLAMBERS OFF CANVAS TO KO GREEN
Former two-time world super-middleweight king Mikkel Kessler had to climb off the canvas to seal the WBC's silver title at light-heavyweight with victory over brash American Allan Green in Copenhagen on Saturday night.
The 'Viking Warrior' was bowled over by a combination in the opening stanza but came back strongly before knocking Green out with a devastating left hook in the fourth.
Kessler, who was cheered on by more than 15,000 vociferous fans at the PARKEN stadium, said: "This was a great victory for me. I had to get rid of the ring rust in the first round. But once I got going, everything went according to plan.
"I am glad I could give my fans a spectacular victory. Their support was fantastic."
