Torben Keller-Travis Hartman Set For April 12th

 Torben Keller (9-0-1, 2 KOs) returns from injury to face Travis Hartman (12-18-1, 9 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night on April 12th at the Blue Water Dokken in Esbjerg.
 
Hartman, an experienced pro, knows what it takes to fight the very best in business, having previously shared the ring with former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and current WBA champion Keith Thurman.
 
Keller is aware of the challenge the American poses and plans to leave nothing to chance when he enters the ring on April 12th.
 
‘’I am expecting a very hard fight against Hartman,’’ said Keller. ‘’He is a very experienced fighter who has given a lot of up and coming fighters problems. He possesses a lot of skill and will take any chance given to him to leave Denmark victorious, but I won’t be giving him any chances and I honestly believe I will be too much for him to handle.
 
‘’My training has been going great. To prepare for this fight I have been over in Hamburg sparring with my good friend Jack Culcay (Team Sauerland stable mate and current WBA Intercontinental Champion). As amateurs Jack and I competed against each over at the very highest level. Now we are teammates we are able to help each other reach the top of the professional game.’’
 
A win for Keller in Esbjerg would see the Skaerbaek local move ever closer to a mooted European title shot later this year. Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night are available at billetten.dk.
