Lauren, Semo, Kalinovic, Salimi Win in Stockholm

By Per Ake Persson

Stockholm, Sweden - Tuffing Sports staged a six fight show at Gota Kallare billed as "Club Fights". It was the second "Club Fight" show at this venue that looks a little like a renovated version of Blue Horizon and the promoters hope to be back in late February.
In the headliner, scheduled for six two-minute rounds, female jr. middleweight Mikaela Lauren stopped and outclassed Hungarian Rita Kennessey after 1.37 of the the second and it could well have been stopped a lot earlier as Kenssey proved totally inept.
Jr. middleweight Benjamin Kalinovic looked strong and sharp against Latvian Sergej Malcev, who went down rather easily in the first and again in the second before the towel came in at 1.07.
Peter Semo returned at welterweight and looked lucky to get a majority decision over Latvian Sergej Moroshek, who was bigger and appeared to outbox the Stockholm-based Ugandan for three rounds. Semo staged a strong finish and won on scores of 39-37 and 39-38 with the third vote at 38-38.
Jr welterweight Karzan Salimi turned pro winning all four rounds against another debutant in Spaniard Darwin Artamaint.
Lightweight Redouane Kaya showed good handspeed and slick moves against tough but limited Spaniard Ryan Peleguer. Kaya won all four rounds but could never hurt his willing opponent.
Jr middleweight Akilles Adnan appeared to lack timing but won a close decision over Latvian Arten Karsev over four. It was scored 40-36 and 39-37 twice.
