WBA super middleweight world champion Mikkel Kessler and undefeated and #1 WBA contender Andre Ward met Thursday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, site of their Nov. 21 fight, to discuss the match-up—part of the Super Six World Boxing Classic. Ward and Kessler were impeccably dressed and impeccably professional in relating confidence in themselves and respect for each other. After the cameras were turned off and Kessler was heading out, he made point of walking over to Ward, shaking his hand and wishing him good fortune in training camp.
