Prazak KO's Frida Wallberg, Allotey Shocks Bogere

By Per Ake Persson

WBC female super featherweight champ Frida Wallberg suffered an upset loss to LA-based Australian Diana Prazak tonight in the headliner of Golden Ring´s show in Stockholm, Sweden.
Wallberg (11-2) was ahead on points after five but appeared to fading and Prazak (12-2) just kept coming and got through with a sweeping right hand in the seventh that buckled Wallberg´s knees - and she never seemed to recover. She looked a bit out of it in the corner but came out for the eight but was floored by a short hard left hook during an exchange from the challenger. Wallberg was hurt but was allowed to continue and was then floored again by a short right hook and referee Bela Florian waved it off.
Wallberg got to her feet and staggered to her corner out of this world into the arms of the ringside physician who seemed to think she was okay but Lucia Rijker, who headed Prazak´s corner, knew differently and called for the doctor to return and Wallberg left the ring on a stretcher and was taken to hospital.
Two minute rounds and ten ounce gloves in welterweight fight or not - Patrick Bogere (12-2) was heavily floored in the sixth by a right from WBC Int´l Silver champ Patrick Allotey (28-0) and was stopped as he got up.

[QUOTE=Cloud;13473326]Thank heavens Lucia was there to notice something was wrong.[/QUOTE] By the accounts of the fightreports, Wallberg's seconds and the ringside doctor looks terrible. Hopefully Wallberg makes a complete recovery, but even then the future of professional boxing in Sweden…

Thank heavens Lucia was there to notice something was wrong.

Wallberg has a bloodclot and had surgery during the night. She is now in a coma. :( Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Nice, I got both of them (5/1 Prazak, 2/1 Allotey). I watched a bit of Allotey and he looked quite decent but I was rather weary of how padded his record was.
