Anthony Yigit vs. Armando Robles on September 10

 Undefeated Swedish fighter Anthony Yigit (17-0-1, 7 KOs) returns to his native Stockholm on September 10 to face Armando Robles (30-4-2, 17 KOs) in a ten-round light welterweight contest at the Hovet.
 
Now living and training in London, the 24 year-old is relishing a return to his hometown having left the Swedish capital to pursue his professional boxing career. His bout will provide chief support for the interim WBC Female World Welterweight title fight between Mikaela Lauren and Klara Svensson.
 
‘’It’s going to be great,’’ says Yigit ‘’The Hovet is close to where I grew up so it really feels like I’m fighting at home. I’ve been away for a long time. I left Stockholm in 2011 to prepare for the Olympics and have spent my pro career in London, Copenhagen and Tenerife.

‘’People have always been asking ‘when are you going to fight at home?’ and I’m excited it’s finally happening. I will have a lot of family and friends coming to support me and I want to show everybody what I have been working so hard to achieve.’’
 
Yigit will face a tough test in his homecoming bout with his Mexican opponent Robles aiming to inflict the Swedish fighter’s first defeat.
 
‘’I’ve been watching his fights and he’s a tough guy,’’ says Yigit. ‘’He’s got a good record – 36 fights, 30 wins and 2 draws – so I’m expecting an all out war. Mexican fighters are always strong and always aggressive, and Robles is no different. He will be definitely be coming to win, and that suits me. These are the types of fights I want to be involved in and I’m sure we will put on a good show for the fans.’’
