Kessler Injures Hand, Title Clash Postponed


Mikkel Kessler injures hand in practice, WBO Title clash against Stieglitz postponed to early 2012

Team Sauerland regrets to announce that Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33 KOs) has sustained a hand injury in practice, forcing him to postpone his hotly-anticipated November 5 clash with WBO Super-Middleweight Champion Robert Stieglitz (40-2, 23 KOs) to early 2012. The venue will remain Copenhagen´s PARKEN Stadium, and all tickets purchased will remain valid. The new date for the show, which will be co-promoted by Team Sauerland and SES boxing, will be confirmed as soon as possible. “This is a major disappointment for me,” Kessler said. “We´ve had a great preparation and I was in fantastic shape when I injured my right hand during a routine training session. The doctors advised me that it needs a rest and I can´t fight on November 5. I am very sorry to keep my fans waiting. The good news is that the injury should heal quickly after a little break. I will rest my hand and then get back to training to be fit for Stieglitz early next year.”

Just like the Viking Warrior, promoter Kalle Sauerland was gutted. “It´s a shame that this big clash of champions has to be postponed,” he stated. “I know how hard Mikkel has worked and how disappointed he is to postpone the original fight date, but we have been through this before. We will now speak to our broadcasting partners – TV2 in Denmark, ARD in Germany and SHOWTIME in the US – to find a new date in early 2012 as soon as possible. We will then kick off the new year with a massive show at PARKEN, with two of the world´s best super-middleweights battling it out.”

As soon as the new date for the show at PARKEN has been confirmed, Team Sauerland will make an announcement. All tickets purchased will remain valid. Fans unable to attend the fight on the new date can refund their tickets through billetlugen.dk’s call center (+45 70 263 267) until three weeks after the announcement of the new date.
