Kessler-Larsen update: WBA supermiddle champ Mikkel Kessler came back from vacation in Thailand last week and signed according to Danish media the proposed contract from Team Palle for a fight against Mads Larsen. However, with the contract came a side-contract with demands such as that the fight against Larsen would be his last for Team Palle where manager Bettina Palle have a contract for another year and Mogens Palle have an option for three voluntary defences. Sauerland Event, who have Mads Larsen under exclusive promotional contract, insist on having Kessler vs Larsen as a co-promotion with Palle, who wants it as an exclusive Team Palle promotion. Meanwhile, Mads Larsen insist on having Kessler as opponent (having previously turned down a shot at IBF titleholder Lucian Bute) have told media Sauerland Event should let go of their demands for a joint venture. Sauerland´s CEO, Chris Meyer, insist on a co-promotion though due to the heavy investments from their side in resurrecting Larsen.
