The rumored fight between WBO super middleweight titlist Robert Stieglitz and Mikkel Kessler is close to done. Kessler is currently the mandatory contender to Stieglitz's belt, a standing he earned with a win over mismatched Mehdi Bouadla in June. After that win, Kessler's team asked the WBO to install him as Stieglitz's mandatory, and they obliged.
Kessler (44-2, 33 KO) would be a pretty healthy favorite against Stieglitz (40-2, 23 KO), but Stieglitz has looked better since a 2008 loss to Librado Andrade, his last defeat. Kessler, 32, only has losses to one-time division ruler Joe Calzaghe and current arguable top dog Andre Ward, and has several wins over fighters on Stieglitz's level.
