By Per Ake Persson

Professional boxing is coming back in Norway after the recent change of government. Proboxing has been prohibited in Norway since January 1, 1981. The exact details are to be worked out but officials in the Norwegian Boxing Federation tells media that the first profight make take place as early as in April 2014. However, amateur organisation AIBA where the Norwegian Federation is a member might have a say on who they want to fight professionally. Norway has one big star and that is WBA, WBC and WBO female welter queen Cecilia Braekhus, who is promoted by Team Sauerland.

Great, I'm happy for them, but lifting the ban in itself doesn't mean much. In my home country pro boxing is not banned, but there is almost no boxing scene to speak of.
