Calzaghe-Kessler Officially Announced
Boxing promoter Frank Warren announced that WBO Super Middleweight Champion Joe Calzaghe will take on WBA and WBC Super Middleweight Champ Mikkel Kessler on November 3rd at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales earlier today.
The winner of the fight will become the undisputed middleweight title holder as all of the belts will be unified.
The most interesting thing to come out of today’s press conference was the fact that there currently isn’t a deal with an American TV outlet that will have the fight broadcast on PPV or premium cable over here. Warren did say that a deal was close however. He refused to name any possible networks.
“We are still working on that. We are still working to conclude our deal. It’s the best fight out there. It’s such a good fight that nobody can ignore it. I’m confident that something will be done,” Warren said.
