    It's to bad, this seemed like an exciting fight with a lot of potential for a great brawl. I can't wait for the kessler team to start throwing out their excuses.

    I personally think Miranda would have beat his face in pretty badly. Mid rd KO.


    Hopefully they find a replacement.

    Miranda aint caving kesslers face in at all.
    Kessler would've taken this. What a shame.

    It is hard to disagree with Pantera

    Kessler must make way more money fighting in his backyard.

    Its the only conclusion I can come to for this.

    I was more interested in Miranda/Pascal anyway.

    Bute have anything lined up?

    They should go for him. It would give him some more exposure.

    Sticking Lucian Bute in this card would seem like a decent save IMO.

    I like that.
    Andrade v Miranda. That would be a fun fight to watch.

    Bute v Kessler. If it would happen it would be interesting.
    But with Kessler not wanting to fight Miranda I have to question what he's interested in doing. Hoping a match up with the winner of Calzaghe/Hopkins?

    I think that would be a tough replacement to sell to the fans. Seeing as how Kessler shut out Andrade in thier fight. 120-108. Kessler vs. Miranda is much better. :D

    Bute seems motivated to fight.
    I think ESB might be going a bit over the top with their criticisms of Kessler, but you've got to wonder what he's thinking.
    Bute stepping in would be a big statement on his part.
    Maybe help him avoid some of the criticisms that hounded Calzaghe, and that are starting to hound Kessler.

    I would definitely take Kessler v Miranda over Andrade v Miranda.
    However, styles make fights.... and Andrade v Miranda would be the definition of a fan's fight.

    Styles do make fights. I love watching Pantera, he is always entertaining.

    Andrade has seemed to recover from the Kessler disappointment, but I still think Miranda would have a bit too much for him.

    Still worth watching nontheless.

    I'm starting to think that Kessler and his corner have been watching the Miranda vs. Banks KO replay a bit too much. :icon_chee

    I heard Kessler might be fighting for a belt at 175 to set up a fight with Roy Jones. I don't know how much truth there is to this, but it would makes sense for Kessler as Jones would be a big pay day for him.

    Too bad, but there are still some good fights for both guys. Kessler > Miranda, also with the crazy, sick tattoo.
