Naim Terbunja Edges Bartlomiej Grafka in Malmoe

By Per Ake Persson

Malmoe, Sweden - Armand Boxing Promotion headed by former WBO middleweight champion Armand Krajnc staged its fifth show and it was billed as Fight Night V - the Return as they returned to the Admiral, a classic venue that over the years have seen a number of boxing and wrestling events.
 
Headlining was the Albanian Warrior, super middleweight Naim Terbunja (7-0) who won a majority decision over strong Pole Bartlomiej Grafka (9-9-1) over. Terbunja was hampered by a bad cold and the fight was shortend to four from six rounds due to this. Naim won the first two but Grafka came on strong after that and it became close. The judges had it 39-37 and 39-38 for Terbunja and 38-38.
 
Terbunja will now return to the US and have a fight lined up late May.
 
Heavyweight Joel Larsson (3-0) won a close but unanimous decision over Jakub Kozera (0-2). It was scored 39-37, 39-38 and 40-36. Kozera looked like he was looking for a place to fall down on but proved to be a capable newcomer and gave Larsson all he could he handle.
 
Danish light heavyweight Kristoffer Storm (3-1) won a majority decison over Lukasz Stawiasz (2-2) in the fight of the night. Storm was cut on the forehead after an accidental clash of heads and Stawiasz came on strong after that but Storm fired back in a fight that lacked skill but had plenty of excitement. It could have gone either way but Storm got it on scores of 39-37 twice and a third vote at 38-36.
 
Sven Fornling (3-0), also at lightheavy, swept aside inept Bulgarian Lyubomir Metodiev and won on a knockout in the third.
 
Karina Kopinska (4-7) outscored Anna Donatella Hultin (6-2) over six two minute rounds and won on scores of 59-56 and 59-55 with an out of line draw on the third card at 57-57.
 
Grzegorz Sikorski (2-6) outscored Omar Zuhrabi (0-2) over four in a fight made at supermiddle. It was scored 39-37 on all cards.
 
Simon Henriksson made his debut and won a KO at 47 seconds of the very first round in a joke of a fight against Aleksandar Ristoski (0-1), jr middles.
 
Jr middle Bo Hansen opened the show and won all four rounds over fellow debutant Gjore Stoyanov.
