Bruun: If I Lose To Anthony Yigit, My Career is Over

Kasper Bruun (19-0-1, 4 K0s) is fighting for his career in the Scandinavian thriller against Swedish Anthony Yigit (9-0-1, 3 KOs). Losing in Esbjerg on April 12th will be the end of a journey that began 18 years ago.
 
"It’s the fight of my life. Only victory counts. If I lose, my career is over."
 
It’s a yearlong struggle for a permanent professional contract that forces the Pandrup-boxer to make his point clear.
 
"My career is at stake and that makes me extremely motivated. I'm going to prove that I deserve a professional career. I must win so I can be a real part of professional boxing," says 27 -year-old Kasper Bruun.
 
Not that he will need the extra motivation, but Bruun vs Yigit is also a fight for the WBC Baltic Light Welterweight Title. A battle over 10 rounds between two unbeaten Scandinavian boxing talents.
 
Bruun believes that his experience will make the difference.
 
"Yigit has never boxed more than six rounds, I have, and that’s an advantage for me. I have several more rounds of experience in my career. Yigit is definitely one of the most talented boxers I've been up against, but my chances are good. I have analysed Yigit and have got a plan A, B and C of how to beat him," says Bruun.
 
Kasper Bruun began boxing when he was 9 years old. His brother and cousin have also proved themselves with gloves on. So has his coach and uncle, Soren Larsen – a man with great influence on Bruun’s career.
 
"Soren has been there for me throughout my career. Even when it wasn’t fun. He kept pushing me over the years. Made sure that I took my training seriously, made fights for me and found sponsors. He has invested a lot of time on me. It's thanks to him that I am where I am today. That I still have a shot,” says Bruun.
 
"Boxing has filled two-thirds of my life and I’ll do everything possible to continue my life in boxing. The only thing I’ll think about is victory. I'll prove that I have a future.''
