Mads Larsen (51-3, 38 KOs) will take on Englishman Luke Blackledge (9-0, 3 KOs) in his comeback on June 2nd. The former European super middleweight champion was originally scheduled to face Lorenzo Di Giacomo in Herning, Denmark, but the Italian broke his hand. Larsen will now battle it out with the 21 year-old Blackledge.
“He is an up-and-coming prospect with a perfect record,” Larsen said. “But his record won´t be perfect anymore after we have met in the ring. The training in Germany has been going very well. I´m ready for my comeback!”
In the co-featured main event, WBA/WBC/WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus defends her title collection against Jessica Balogun. More undercard fights will be announced in the next days.
