Former EBU supermiddle champ Christophe Rebrasse (23-3-3) take on Seyedin Syroos (15-6-4) in a fight for the vacant Francophone (now affiliated with the WBC) title March 14 in Charleroi (Belgium) on a 12 Rounds Promotion.
This fight headline a big pro-am show and in the chief support another former EBU champ returns in featherweight Alex Miskirtchian (24-3-1). Miskirtchian has been out since losing to Evgeny Gradovich in May 2014 and it was announced that he would try his way in the US last fall but apparently nothing materialized and he’s now back in Belgium.
12 Rounds Promotion is headed by Alain Vanackere, who also manages Miskirtchian.
Former WBA and WBC supermiddleweight champion Mikkel Kessler (pictured) tells Ekstrabladet that he's now officially retired. Kessler’s last fight was in May of 2013 when he lost the rematch to Carl Froch in London.
He then took a long time to regroup but announced in May of last year he would fight again - but was only interested in the really big fights with no tuneups.
To get "the really big fights" proved however a big obstacle and while promoted Kalle Sauerland told media several times he was close to a deal nothing ever materialized. Others speculated in that the Viking Warrior was in fact retired but needed to keep his name warm to satisfy various sponsors.
Kessler does however leave the door open for another fight if he likes of Andre Ward or Carl Froch should be interested.
