Anthony Yigit, Otto Wallin, Naim Terbunja Win Bouts in Sweden

By Per Ake Persson

Stockholm, Sweden - Welterweight Anthony Yigit (18-0-1) won a unanimous decision over Mexican Armando Robles (30-5-2) over ten rounds. Yigit won on scores of 98-92, 98-93 and 100-90 in an all southpaw clash.

Robles kept coming and had some success but Yigit was overall too fast and slick for his opponent. Yigit landed with some good left hooks but if there is weakness in "Can you dig it" Yigit then it is his lack of power.

Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin (16-0) outscored big and heavy (almost 300 lbs) Osvaldo Machimana (21-9-1) over eight. It was scored 80-72 twice and 79-74. Machimana gave Wallin a good test and while Otto passed it the fight showed there´s plenty of work to be done before moving up the ladder and one is perhaps gaining a little weight and get stronger.

The Albanian Warrior, super middleweight Naim Terbunja (10-1) outscored tough Frenchman Baptist Castegnaro (8-9) over six hard fought, good rounds of boxing. Terbunja, based in New York and promoted by Star Boxing but on "loan" to Sauerland for this show, worked hard and scored with a good right hook but could never hurt Castegnaro.

It was scored 59-55 twice and 59-56. Don´t let Castegnaro´s record fool you - he can give most super middleweights a hard night´s work.

Female super lightweight Patricia Berghult (3-0) opened Sauerland Promotion´s show at Hovet with a first round stoppage of Hungarian Magyar KInga (0-2). King took a standing eight count but was out on her feet and it was stopped at 1.50. It was scheduled for 4x2.
