Dennis Ceylan To Make Sauerland Debut on September 22

Team Sauerland is delighted to announce the signing of Danish amateur star and 2012 Olympian Dennis Ceylan. The 23-year-old will be competing at the Nordic Fight Night series, with his debut set for September 22 at Frederikshavn´s Arena Nord. “I am excited to turn professional and fight for Team Sauerland,” Ceylan said. “I am ready for a new challenge.”

Ceylan, an accomplished Scandinavian and Danish champion, clinched a place in the Olympic tournament (bantamweight). Luck was not on his side as he was handed a tough draw, losing to later silver medal winner John Joe Nevin in the first round. “Travelling to the Olympics was an unforgettable experience,” Ceylan said. “Of course I had hoped for a better finish but now I will fully concentrate on my new career as a professional. I want to prove that I am the best.”

Promoter Nisse Sauerland is convinced that the Aarhus fighter can bring titles to Denmark. “We fully believe in his potential and his determination,” he stated. “The Nordic Fight Night will be the perfect platform for him to develop as a fighter. Everybody who fights for Team Sauerland has the potential to be a champion one day, and it´s no different with Dennis. He is young, he is hungry and he is talented. Granted, it´s a long way to the top, but we think that Dennis can make it.”

Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night at Arena Nord are available at www.arenanord.dk . In the main fight of the evening, WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen defends his title against Jose Yebes. WBA / WBC / WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus also faces French KO queen Anne Sophie Mathis, while Ahmed Kaddour, Torben Keller, Erik Skoglund, Simeen Smaadal and Alexander Hagen will also be in action.
