|WBC silver champion Mikel Kessler.|
|Kessler scores a devastating knockout victory.|
Although, it was a good performance from Kessler, it was clear that he is not the same fighter that he used to be. His age seems to be catching up with him, in and out of the ring as he has also revealed he finds it hard to make the 168lb weight limit for the super-middleweight division. He actually weighed in for this fight at 169lb so at the moment it looks like he could end up becoming stuck between weight divisions.
It's not clear as to who is lined up for Kessler next but there has been a big call for a light-heavyweight showdown between him and WBO world champion Nathan Cleverly. This would be a great fight for the fans and both men as the bout would make a lot of money as both fighters have huge fan bases in Europe. This would be a risky fight for Kessler to take as Cleverly is an up and coming fighter that is still young, fresh and hungry so he will want this win to earn a big name on his record.
A return to super-middleweight seems like a more sensible idea for Kessler as he only just made it over the minimum weight limit for the light-heavyweight division and his power and skill seems to be much more effective at the lighter weight.
