They say that Froch is slow, Kessler even said that just after Kessler vs Froch 1, but Froch looks like a rocket compared to King Arthur. I am sorry to say that AA -in with a man that is clearly physical stronger, has Ko power in both hands, and who is technically great =Kessler -will be in a world of trouble. I must admit that I doubt very much that this fight becomes a reality. I believe Sauerland will feed journeymen to AA, until he stops.

Kessler will end AA badly. Than Froch or Pavlic

I keep seeing Allan Green getting punched cold by Kessler. That was wicked! If Kessler lands that punch on anyone flush like that.. they are goin’ night-night!

You´re spot on – since he hired Jimmy Montoya as trainer, Kessler has been instructed to stand at middle canvas and not back down – both to keep on pressure and because he actually hits harder than most smw-fighters. With his old trainer he would utilize his jab more and be gone when the opponent attacked – we saw that with Beyer and Andrade, and i actually prefer the old Kessler. Counter-striking and moving a lot, and you didnt see him get hit – nowadays he always look like he was in a fight with a pitbull, but maybe age has its natural evolution on Kesslers strategy….who knows…

I think that what we saw in Stieglitz vs Abraham was a weak champ in Stieglitz, and an Abraham who does not belong in smw in any way or shape. In fact I saw an Abraham, who is finished at top level. At this point he has absolutely, no power or speed in his hands, compared to his good period in mw. I was an Abraham fan, but now he looks terrible, in every aspect of boxing. He has no conditioning, he is slow, he gets hit a lot, and the power is gone. I have never seen King Arthur this old. Kessler is Abrahams worst nightmare.

Lets be clear here: King Arthur looked absolutely terrible against Stieglitz. Abraham has no power in the smw division, on top of that he can’t box. If Abraham meets Kessler, he will be Koed, without a doubt. This fight is a dream for Kessler, if it happens. Be sure about one other thing: Kessler will go to Nottingham, where he has more than a 50% chance of winning against Froch, and earn a lot of money, with that kind of audience.

I’m not as convinced about Kessler as I once was. He’s probably still start as favourite vs Abraham but he’d need to rediscover old form. He doesn’t seem to move his feet the way he once did – he’s become more stationary and more hitable in the process and you can’t afford that against Abraham who can crack. Ward and Froch beat Abraham with movement and clever boxing. Kessler has become more ‘stand and trade’ these days but we’ll see. Hopefully they can make the fight and we’ll find out! . .

Kessler is all wrong for AA – Kessler has a great chin and always a high work-rate. Would be close to impossible for AA to get a decision win against Kessler.

Abraham gets a boxing lesson if this happens. Abraham is the winner of the peek a boo.

Kessler beats AA big, even on a bad day. If Kessler is on top of his game I would consider him the best in the division or a very close second!

Froch gave AA a boxing lesson and Kessler gave Froch a boxing lesson.
Dont think AA wants any part of Kessler. AA should go after Andre Dirrell and
finalize what should have been a KO

I doubt this will happend.
I can see AA – Sturm / Dirrell / Groves / Pavlik / Oosthuizen / Bika

I can see Kessler – Cleverly / Pascal / Cloud / Oosthuizen

I can’t see Kessler – AA that would be just all wrong for AA

It’s Me, Ernie…

There is give and take with these two, Kessler a good boxer that does get chin checked often, AA is not someone you should let do that to you. They both have strengths and weakness’ that will make for a great match.

would like to see this….

Posted August 26, 2012 4:34 pm 


I am an AA fan and to me he is an underdog in the Kessler fight. My matchmaking list for AA would be:

1) Pavlik
2) Dirrell
3) Martinez (what the hell… They are same size).

How is it even ? Kessler is actually a decent all round boxer he’s not one dimensional like Abe.

Posted August 26, 2012 3:31 pm 

The Kingslayer

I’d rather see Kessler face someone like Pascal or Cloud next.

Posted August 26, 2012 3:30 pm 

It’s Me, Ernie…

Evenly matched, looks like a barn-burner…

Kessler is better in every area. Either a clear decision or Kessler becomes the first guy to stop AA. If anyone can it’s Kessler.

Posted August 26, 2012 2:25 pm 


I said all along that the Abe-Stigz winner was gonna be fed to Kessler.

No way Kessler travels to Nottingham, he’s gonna be milked in Germany ’til he retires. The only person who wanted that fight was Froch. Kessler, Sauerlands and Matchroom won’t let it happen.

KESSLER TIME 1.50 PM 8/26/2012

Posted August 26, 2012 1:44 pm 


I hope it happens. The general concensus seems to be that it’s a fair match up, if the bookies have it as such, and are giving good odds, I’ll lay a sizeable wad down for Kessler to stop him….
