The Nordic Fight Night returns from the summer break on September 7, with three Swedish top talents in action at Frederikshavn´s Arena Nord. Light Welterweight Anthony Yigit (4-0, 1 KO), who already has four victories to his name since the 2012 Olympics, comes face-to-face with Toni Delgado (3-1) from Spain. Otto Wallin (1-0, 1 KO) takes on experienced Valeri Semiskur (18-28-1, 10 KOs), while KO king Oscar Ahlin (7-0, 7 KOs) battles it out with Artem Solomko (11-23-1, 4 KOs).
Yigit and Wallin have been sharing a flat in Berlin, where they have been training under the guidance of coach Torsten Schmitz. They have both been through quality sparring sessions with fellow Team Sauerland fighters. Wallin, for instance, has trained with top-rated Bulgarian contender Kubrat Pulev, who is facing US veteran Tony Thompson this weekend to determine the next IBF mandatory challenger for Wladimir Klitschko, and Denis Boytsov. “It´s a privilege to spar with these guys,” Wallin said. “I have been working hard since my debut and I feel well prepared. I am developing every day. I am ready for my second fight. Semiskur has a lot of experience and experienced guys are always dangerous. I am looking forward to September 7.”
Meanwhile, Yigit is convinced he will stretch his unbeaten run to five. “I have seen some of Delgado´s fights,” he said. “He is a guy who doesn´t go down easily. I expect him to come hard at me but I am more than ready to show him that I am a tough guy as well.”
Completing the Swedish line-up will be Oscar Ahlin who has been preparing in Stockholm and Copenhagen. The 23-year-old announced his arrival with a third-round KO win over Tim-Robin Lihaug in April, which earned him a contract with Team Sauerland. His next test will come against Artem Solomko from Belarus. None of Ahlin´s opponents have ever lasted the distance. “Of course I like to win by KO, but you cannot plan a KO. If it comes, it comes. If not, I´ll be happy to win by points,” he said.
In the Danish main fight of the evening, WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen takes on Patrick Majewski, while in the co-featured Norwegian headliner, WBA, WBC & WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus, the pound-for-pound number one, defends her titles against unbeaten champion Oxandia Castillo.
