Kessler: I’ve Made Big Changes

By Rob Hough

Mikkel Kessler (42-2, 32 KOs) said Thursday he will unveil a mix of old and new when he fights Carl Froch (26-0, 20 KOs) on April 24, both fighters’ second fight in the Super Six World Boxing Classic. Kessler, who lost a technical decision to Andre Ward (21-0, 13 KOs) in the tournament’s first round and replaced trainer Ricard Olsen with former assistant trainer Jimmy Montoya, said a new approach was required. “I had to change a lot, of course,” Kessler said on a conference call. “I can’t reveal the details now, but I had to change a lot.” Froch, also on the call, said he wasn’t serious or disrespectful in commenting recently that he will decapitate Kessler—a quote Kessler has posted on the wall in his training camp. “We all know it’s a metaphor, a figure of speech,” he said. “We’re two proud athletes at the top of our game. There’s no cheap talk from either of us, no slagging each other off.”
