Caramelito News: Multi-Title Event Hits Hamina, 11/30

By Alexey Sukachev

Having steeled themselves over several low-key local shows and periods of inactivity, Caramelito Promotions, one of the Finland’s top boxing companies led by Petro Koskimies and Markus Lammi, make their comeback to the town of Hamina with a multi-title event, the second in the town’s short boxing history. The first was also staged by Caramelito Promotions in February 2013.

Leading the card is undefeated cruiserweight banger and Finish national champion Janne Forsman (12-0, 9 KOs). After a slow career start Forsman, a local hero of Hamina, has scored eight straight stoppages, setting a new record for prizefighters from Finland.

Forsman will challenge for a vacant WBO European title against once-beaten Hungarian Tamas Lodi (11-1-1, 9 KOs), best known for his crushing defeat to world-class 200lber Ilunga Makabu in March. The bout is set for twelve rounds.

Two belts will be at stake for unification of regalia between Finnish national middleweight champion Timo Laine (9-2) and Baltic Boxing Union (BBU) titleholder Fitim Latifi (7-0, 1 KO), a Porvoo-based Kosovar. The bout is set for ten. Interestingly, if successful against Latifi (which is a big ‘if’), Laine will become the first ever Finnish boxer to defend his domestic belt in any weight class.

Also undefeated cruiserweight Sami Enbom (5-0, 2 KOs) will be tested over six by the 20-year old Georgian import Gogita Gorgiladze (16-2, 13 KOs), another TKO-victim of all-powerful Makabu.

Other pairs include:

Pertti Keita (3-2) vs. Renat Samedovi (6-8-1, 1 KO) – 4 rounds, middleweights
Petteri Frojdholm (3-0, 1 KO) vs. Bence Molnar (4-2, 3 KOs) – 4 rounds, lightweights
Mikko Sateri (1-0, 1 KO) vs. Mika Ritala (pro debut) – 4 rounds, light heavyweights

The show looks to be a success already. According to Markus Lammi, almost all seats (over 700) are sold at Ruissalon liikuntahalli. The show will be webcasted live at: http://sporttv.fi/events/116/boxing-night-hamina/18 .
