Undefeated WBO World Super-Middleweight Champion Joe Calzaghe heads to New York next week to publicise his mega-showdown against rival Mikkel Kessler set for November 3 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Record-breaking title-holder Calzaghe will meet face-to-face with WBC/ WBA World Champion Kessler for the first time at a press conference on Tuesday 4th September in The Landmarc at the mighty Time Warner Center in the heart of Manhattan.
Further promotional activity will see Calzaghe and Kessler filming a TV commercial for their fight with American TV giants HBO.
Calzaghe said, "I'm not a big fan of flying but for once I can't wait to get on the plane! I'm up for this fight big time and I when I see Kessler face-to-face and look straight into his eyes I will know if he has the fire in his belly. His promoter Mogen's Palle has been doing all of the talking so far so I will be interested in hearing what Kessler has to say for himself.
Calzaghe and Kessler will then see each other in Cardiff for a press conference at the Millennium Stadium on Monday 10 September. Details will be released shortly.
