04/04/12 Kessler Moves up and Hatton's war of words with McGuigan

Kessler steps things up

Mikkel Kessler has made the decision to take his Boxing ability to the Light Heavyweight division. The choice has been made after pulling out of a world title shot with Robert Stieglitz , and he will now face 31-3 Allan Green. I can only feel that it has sunk in that he was never going to able to take on the Super Middleweights elite fighters again. After losses to Johnson and Ward and going the distance with Froch, it would seem that Kessler will now try to work his way to a World title through the Light Heavyweight division. It has been reported that he will be looking to take on the winner of the showdown in April between Chad Dawson and Bernard Hopkins, he will have to fight off competition from Welshman Nathan Cleverly as Promotor Frank Warren has already confirmed he has made Hopkins their next target. We may even get to see the Dane take on Cleverly which would be a good measure to see where Kessler is regarding being a legitimate contender for a World title again.

Hatton Fires at McGuigan

After it was announced that Ricky Hattons very own Scott Quigg would take on Rendall Munroe, a lot of people were left with a disappointed look on their face, none more so than Barry McGuigan, who for some time now has urged Hatton to get his fighter in the ring with Irishman Carl Frampton. Hatton has stated that two days after the Munroe fight was announced McGuigan tore into Hatton saying that he was running scared of his young prospect, Hatton has confirmed that as these comments were made after the signing of Quigg, Munroe which is the fight they wanted and that McGuian should get a grip. Either way I think we will eventually be looking at a match up between Quigg and Frampton, but we may have to wait as im sure that there will be a few other experienced fighters that feel they are further up the line to face the British Champion.
