IBA Junior middleweight champion of the world, the African Warrior, Evans Ashira Oure ( (29-3, 15 KOs)reached out to former WBC/WBA world super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler and gave him some quality sparring leading up to his upcoming fight on June 21 against Dmitry Sartison for the vacant WBA title.

The sparring was really good and just what Kessler needed to get sharp for his fight, as both he and Ashira are very established and at the very top among professional boxers in Denmark. Ashira has sparred with many of the best fighters in the world, including world champions Floyd Mayweather and Arthur Abraham, and, like Kessler, he also fought the legendary Joe Calzaghe, loosing on points after twelve rounds

Ashira stepped in on short notice to do the rounds with Kessler when his acting sparringpartner was said to not be able to manage by himself, and Ashira is happy to have helped his friend and at the same time be able to feel his own level.
