Actually and funnily enough Mikkel Kessler told us he was at about 50% for his fight with Mundine and only had a decent weeks worth of sparring because of his back injury and he even flew all the way down here to fight, which is more than a day's trip. As for the fight itself, he had to pace himself and hold back a bit. We learnt this from a month long training camp in Denmark with Kessler.
Is that ironic that Mundine claims to have been at 50%? Not looking to get drawn into the useless debates but I thought it was a bit funny.
Cool, but Kessler made it known pre-fight. Mundine used this excuse as well as many others post Geale II. If he was ripped off by the judges as he claimed, then in the next breath claims he lost because was 50%, then he has contradicted himself.
