I think you actually need some hype to be a hype job , the only place where Kessler is hyped is probably Denmark .

At the very least he's a good solid World Champion , whether he's on Calzaghe's level is another issue but we'll find that out soon enough .

I remember a fighter called Jeff Lacy to be a hype job of comical proportions.

Kelly Pavlik. It's moreso the internet fans than anywhere else. He's about to get his ass kicked.

At least Taylor's proven against quality opposition (allbeit debatable) . What's Kessler done apart from beat a very timid Anthony Mundine ?

Nope, he's my favourite fighter. Just sick of this Kessler bandwagon thats appeared from out of no where. Calzaghe should be fighting Hopkins/Taylor/Tarver rather than Kessler who's nothing more than an alphabet champion.
