Well I guess you guys will be all over me now. But it comes from Kessler himself here is the translation.
My own take is that I think he as very stupid not to postbone the match, he must have underestimated Calzaghe since he fought he could win if he wasn´t 100%. He stated that if the fight got postboned we was afraid that it would never happen. Still stupid I think. He also fought Mundine with a back injury.
I hope this is the last time Kessler do this.
Interview with Kessler:
Kessler: I can now reveal that I had a hand injury and I couldn't use the hand the last 3 weeks.
Why did you keep it a secret ?
Kessler: Are you insane had I revealed it I would have been done for.
Why didn´t you try to postbone the match ?
Kessler: Had I done that the fight would never had happened.
Despite the injured hand Kessler refused to use the hand as a excuse for the defeat.
Kessler: I lost to a better man. It was Joes night.
End of interview
And I agree Joe was the better man at the night, but I hope Kessler have learn something from that fight
