Sauerland to have Olympic-style drug testing

16

German promoter Sauerland has extended their TV deal with German network ARD through 2015. As a condition to the extension, Saulerland will need to conduct Olympic style drug testing on its fighters under the supervision of the German National Anti-Doping Authority. In addition, this testing will be performed on opponents of Sauerland fighters. This, in turn, means that the fighters in the Super Six will be subjected to random drug testing, for instance, as both Arthur Abraham and Mikkel Kessler are with Sauerland. Already, the new policy has swept out one Sauerland opponent. Sebastian Sylvester was supposed to face Pablo Navascues a few weeks ago, but Navascues was knocked out of the fight when he flunked a random pre-fight drug test. It's a small step, but it's a positive first step in the right direction.

Mikkel Kessler freed from the bounds of Mogens Palle?

According to Mikkel Kessler's website, he is now being represented by Sauerland event, promoter for Arthur Abraham, among others. However, it's unclear whether this really ends his promotional issues. Yesterday, Palle said that Sauerland's offers to him were a joke and that he wasn't going to accept. In the current articles, it seems to take the view that Kessler is a free agent and was free to sign anywhere, which is what Kessler is in the middle of litigating in Danish court. If Sauerland didn't pay something to Palle, Palle will still be standing in the way, and he still won't be able to fight. At this point, it sounds like Palle's involvement with Kessler is the biggest stumbling block to officially announcing the Showtime super middleweight tournament.

Can't beat free boxing videos

Just a heads up, but Sauerland generally posts all of their main events on its website, and the fights are available for streaming or download. That means that even if you don't get Showtime, you should be able to watch Abraham-Oral later on. Or if you want to catch the knockout from Huck-Rusal, you can do that too.
