Dennis Ceylan (7-0, 4 KOs) will face Emiliano Salvini at the Nordic Fight Night in Kolding on October 19. The Italian veteran (15-18-2, 2 KOs), a former European Title challenger, currently occupies the 12th spot in the EU ratings. Ceylan comes off a first-round destruction of countryman Tommi Schmidt. I am ready for another win, Ceylan said.
The Danish Olympian, who turned pro one year ago, is pleased with the way his career has been going. I enjoy fighting professionally, he said. I had to learn a few things but I am very happy about my development. I have done a lot of strength training, so I have become much stronger, and I think I΄ve adjusted well to the pro game. Now I just want to keep improving and keep winning.
Ceylan, along with Team Sauerland stablemate Torben Keller, got a first taste of the atmosphere at TRE-FOR Arena last weekend when he attended KIF Kolding Kψbenhavn΄s Champions League victory over Porto Vitalis. It was a great game and the crowd was very loud, Ceylan said. I hope the support will be the same when we fight on October 19.
Meanwhile, Torben Keller (8-0, 2 KOs) will attend the Fleggaard Box Camp 2013 at Felsted Bokseklub on Saturday. More than 100 children, aged between 9-17, will be training with 30 voluntary coaches. One of them will be Keller. I am really looking forward to meeting all the young fighters, Keller said. Hopefully I will be able to inspire them and show them some new things. I am very happy to participate in the camp.
