Kessler back in the mix

“This was a great victory for me,” said Mikkel Kessler (45-2, 34 KOs) after his fourth round knockout of Allan Green (31-4, 21 KOs) on Saturday night in Copenhagen. “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.”

Trainer Jimmy Montoya added, “Mikkel has always had a lot of power in both hands. He prepared Green well to the body. He opened him up and then he caught him. And that was not a lucky punch.”

Promoter Kalle Sauerland stated, “This KO – and the way he set it up by hitting Green with body shots – showed that Mikkel is still at the very top of the sport. I said before he needs to win and he needs to impress and today he delivered in impressive fashion. The people of Denmark can be very proud of their Viking Warrior. He has great fights coming up now.”

It was Kessler’s second fight since pulling out of the Super Six tournament due to double vision in August 2010. He returned in June 2011 to stop Mehdi Bouadla. He then suffered a hand injury that scuttled a fight with WBO champ Robert Stieglitz, before his spectacular return against Green.
