Hall of Fame Showtime Broadcaster Al Bernstein calls the November 21st Mikkel Kessler-Andre Ward Super Six World Boxing Classic match, “potentially one of the best of the tournament.” Bernstein, who will be at ringside with Gus Johnson and Antonio Tarver to call the action on Showtime, believes that this first round Super Six match-up features the two best ring technicians in the tourney. “Mikkel Kessler is close to a textbook boxer and he has power added into that mix. Andre Ward has a vast amateur background and has moved carefully through the pro ranks, so he has fully developed as a fighter. They both have a high skill level and I believe they will produce a terrific fight,” Bernstein said.
This match concludes the first stage of the Super Six World Boxing Classic. In round one Carl Froch won a decision over Andre Dirrell to gain two points in the standings and Arthur Abraham stopped Jermain Taylor in the 12th to put three points up on the scoreboard. The Ward-Kessler match can be seen on Saturday on Showtime.
