SWEDISH LIGHT HEAVY GOES FOR FIFTH WIN OF THE YEAR
Press Release: Swedish light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (11-0, 6 KOs) will return to the ring on September 22nd in Frederikshavn, Denmark taking on Argentinian Ricardo Marcello Ramallo (9-3, 8 KOs). The unbeaten 21-year-old comes off a second-round KO win over Fouad Nasri, his fourth victory in 2012 and his fifth since beating Volodymyr Borovsky despite a broken jaw in May 2011.
“Things have been going very well as of late,” Skoglund said. “I have knocked out three of my last four opponents. I can feel that I get better and stronger with every fight I take.”
Skoglund has spent the summer break in his hometown of Nyköping. “After my last fight, I took two weeks off and then started with practice again. Right now I am working out twice a day according to a very strict plan I got from my coach Karsten Rower. It´s a nice change to go back to my old gym and do the running exercises at the beach, even though the training is very tough and I push myself hard. I´ll go back to Berlin on
August 19 to do the fine-tuning and the sparring.”
Skoglund needs to be in top shape on September 22nd. Ramallo has clinched eight of his nine victories by knockout. “He seems to be a good puncher but I am sure I have a lot more power than he has,” Skoglund said.
Tickets are available at www.arenanord.dk. In one of the main fights of the evening, WBA / WBC / WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus will defend her titles against French KO queen Anne Sophie Mathis.
