May 06, 2020, 01:06 PM

Viking Warrior Mikkel Kessler fought the likes of Joe Calzaghe, Carl Froch and Andre Ward in a decorated career that saw him capture the WBA and WBC titles at super-middleweight. From fighting early on in Las Vegas to being on the big Mike Tyson-Brian Neilsen bill at the Parken in Copenhagen, he was initially guided by Hall of Fame promoter Mogens Palle. He unified the titles and scored wins over Anthony Mundine, Marcus Beyer and Eric Lucas before his huge night in Wales against Calzaghe. Kessler fought in the brilliant Super Six series, learned to ride fast motorbikes and a comeback was curtailed after he was bitten by a tick and hospitalised. Here, he talks about the big nights, who would have won between Froch and Calzaghe and Calzaghe and Ward and much more. Now now he lives quietly in Denmark.
