Ljungquist Makes Pro Debut, Thorslund Returns To Action

Danish amateur star Kem Ljungquist will make his professional debut against Revaz Karelishvili (8-2, 7 KOs) on the undercard of the World Boxing Super Series quarter-final contest between Juergen Braehmer and Rob Brant on October 27 at the Sport and Congress Center in Schwerin, Germany.
Ljungquist, who signed promotional terms with Team Sauerland last month, is a former three-time national champion and two-time Nordic Champion, who has represented Denmark at both the World and European Amateur Championships.
The 27 year-old heavyweight, who is scheduled to face Karelishvili over six-rounds, says he is excited to be making his debut on such a big show against a tough opponent.

"I'm really looking forward to this fight,” said Ljungquist. “My opponent has a good record, and I'm really glad that I get a good opponent in my debut fight.
"It's simply too cool that I'm going to fight on the World Boxing Super Series undercard. I am really looking forward to standing in the ring and feeling the atmosphere. I could not ask for a better stage to show who I am and what I can do. The crowd can look forward to seeing a technically skilled, hard-hitting boxer that connects with enormous power when he finds the openings.
"Schwerin is not far from where I grew up in Denmark, and I know that Danish fans will come down and support me, and they won’t regret it!”
Female super bantamweight star Dina Thorslund (9-0, 6 KOs) will also be flying the flag for Denmark in Schwerin. The current European champion is set to meet Croatia’s Nevenka Mikulic (7-9-1, 5 KOs) over eight rounds on the stacked World Boxing Super Series card.
"I'm really looking forward to getting in the ring again,” said Thorslund. “I'm dreaming of a World title fight at the end of the year, so I see this fight as part of my preparations. I do not take any fights easily, but this one is a fight I’m confident I’ll win. I’m sharp, I’m motivated and I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to showing the crowd in Schwerin some good action!"

Danish boxers Abdul Khattab (15-2, 4 KOs) and Micki Nielsen (23-1, 14 KOs) are also in action on the undercard. Khattab is on the comeback trail against Ronny Mittag (30-2-1, 15 KOs), while Nielsen meets Ukraine’s Taras Oleksiyenko (8-3, 7 KOs).
