Up-and-coming tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki, the world number two and 2009 US open finalist, will be ringside on April 24th to support fellow Danish superstar Mikkel Kessler in his must-win Super Six World Boxing Classic clash with WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch. Wozniacki and Kessler have been good friends for a long time, and despite a very tight tournament schedule, the 19-year-old sensation will travel to Herning to cheer for the “Viking Warrior” in the most important fight of his career.
“Mikkel is a very good friend of mine,” Wozniacki said. “He is a great athlete who works very hard for his success. I really look forward to watching him beat up Carl Froch in Herning on April 24th. Even though it will be a tough fight, I am sure Mikkel has got what it takes to leave the ring as the winner. I will do my very best to cheer and support him from ringside. He has had a great career and I am sure we haven’t seen the best of him just yet.”
Also in attendance will be Michael Maze, the Danish European table tennis champion, who is also a good friend of Kessler and Wozniacki.
The fight will air on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/PT as a one-fight card (same-day delay).
