Default Has anyone heard anything about Kessler?

I love watching this dude fight but since Calzaghe out slapped him he has disappeared. What is going on with him and when is his next fight?

You mean he slapped him to death with that vicious right hook to the body in the 8th round that hurt Kessler for the first time ever???

DUH

He's still licking his wounds probably.....he called out Calzaghe ALL the time after beating guys and saying stuff like "Im coming for you"

Good fighter but in an interview still tried to say he was better than Calzaghe

Put him in with Bika or Bute

HBO wanted to make Kessler/Wright - but Wright doesn't feel that Kessler's name is big enough for him. Since Wright shot that down - I haven't heard anything else about Kessler.

outslapped?? get a grip, have you actually watched the fight?!

Kessler is awesome and should rule SMW now joe has left, stick him in with Lacy just to boost his name in the states, then the offers will come in for him.

After the Calzaghe fight he had an operation in his hand, and his promotor, Palle, is old and has bad health, which partly explains the silence.

But he is stuck in limbo until Calzaghe vacates his titles and right now the big us-based name-fighters think he is high-risk low-reward. So many interesting fights to be made though...

Well Kessler will be waiting until at least the summer then cos Calzaghe keeps his belts even though he is going up to LHW.....He should go after Bute's belt

He is on the bottom of the bottle.
Probably next to Hatton somewhere in the Caribbean.

Kessler would make short work of Bika - how come someone can beat a load of bums on some big brother reality TV show and be considered a world class fighter?

Send Junior Witter and Gavin Rees there, they'd feel right at home!

That was because Kessler was fighting with a broken rib...

Exactly.

Bika is a gatekeeper. Nothing more, nothing less.

Not a bum, but he did beat some bums winning the contender, which gives him **** all reason to be considered an elite fighter!
