Luke Furman reports that the WBO super middleweight title bout between Robert Stieglitz and Mikkel Kessler, originally scheduled for November 5, has been rescheduled for April 14. The fight will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Kessler (44-2, 33 KO) has fought just once since he was forced out of the Super Six in 2009 due to an eye injury, and that was an easy comeback tune-up against Mehdi Bouadla on June 4. Kessler stopped a game but massively overmatched Bouadla in six rounds.

Stieglitz (40-2, 23 KO) will be making his fifth defense of the title he won from Karoly Balzsay in August 2009, and this will be by far the toughest. So far he's successfully defended against Ruben Acosta, Eduard Gutknecht, Enrique Ornelas and Khoren Gevor. By the time he climbs into the ring against Kessler, the 30-year-old Stieglitz will have been out of the ring a full calendar year.
