Default Calzaghe-Kessler finally signed.

According to danish press the fight was finally officially signed at a pressconference in Copenhagen today.

Even if it's been considered a done deal for some time, it's nice to see them put the pen to the paper.

No and no. But we all know that's what's going to be said!
Kessler is no fraud but win or lose Calz is getting kind of old.

In the reports its mentioned that the exact time of the fight (not talking dates, just what hour it's on) will be announced August 19th. and is depending on what HBO is prepared to offer.
So i guess no agreement have been reached on that yet.

He's 35, not young for a fighter, but he's very fresh at 35. If Kessler wins, I will be first to provide him with massive credit because Calzaghe is at 80% or so in my opinion and will be in damn near the condition he was vs. Jeff Lacy, well enough to represent what he still is.

That being said, Calzaghe wins by a brutal one sided thrashing, it'll be supernatural.

Well Cardiff here we come, looking forward to taste your beer and celebrate
the (winner) Kessler after the fight!
Worst case senario, we must drown our sorrow.
I'll guess we can have a great night anyway

I am certain of a Calzaghe win, but if Mikkel does win I will be happy to buy you a beer.
Superfight in Cardiff!!

Is Calzaghe the best he has ever been right now? I dunno, maybe not 100% but pretty damn close to it I would think

Absolute rubbish. Tickets have been on sale for weeks now. Probably publicity for Danish fans to buy their tickets.

Nope it's not publicity Kessler hadn't signed the fight which he himself had stated on previous occasions.

Only reason tickets have been for sale for some weeks now, is 'cause ****** is a hustler. Both Palle and Kessler have stated several times that nothing was signed yet, but that they still felt quite sure that the match was on..
****** definetaly has some balls, to put the tickets up for sale before anything was sure..
