Erik Skoglund Decisions Mock, Keller Beats Pryce

By Per Ake Persson, photos by Photo Wende

Kolding, Denmark - Light heavyweight contender Erik Skoglund (18-0, 9KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over veteran Lolenga Mock (31-14-1) to win the vacant EU championship. The scores were 118-110, 117-110 and 116-112. Skoglund was hurt by a right in the third and because the ropes were holding him up - the referee gave him the mandatory eight count. The Swede was on unsteady legs for most of the round but came back and the 41-year old Mock showed the wear and tear after a long career and was just too slow. Mock kept coming though and it made for a hardfought, exciting fight but Skoglund was a clear winner.

Danish feather Dennis Ceylan, 7-0, stopped Italian veteran Emiliano Salvini, 15-19-2, in the sixth of a scheduled eight rounder for the sole stoppage in this ten-bout card with 76 rounds of boxing scheduled. Salvini soaked up a one sided beating and was wisely retired by his cornerman Giuseppe Lauri at 2.23.

Kim Poulsen, 23-1, outscored Puriya Haidari, 6-1, over eight in an all Danish matchup at welter. Poulsen won on scores of 80-72 on all cards after fight with no drama at all. Haidari never got untracked and Poulsen boxed behind his jab taking no risks and it made for a dull fight.

Micki Nielsen, 10-0, won a shutout decision over six against Georgian Sandro Siproshvili, 27-16. Nielsen, a southpaw, quickly got frustrated with his stocky opponent and wrestled him to the canvas several times. Siproshvili came to survive and did just that. It was scored 60-54, 60-53 and 60-53 (wrongly announced as 43).

Danish jr. middleweight Torben Keller, 9-0-1, outscored British veteran Bradley Pryce, 34-14, winning a unanimous decision after ten. It was scored 98-92 twice and 99-91. Keller controlled the fight in the first six working behind his jab and with his right scoring with easde. Pryce had a swollen left eye but came on strong in the final four and while not sharp his workrate won him some rounds. Keller got a cut in the eighth after an accidental clash of heads.

Norwegian light heavyweight Alexander Hagen, 3-0, outscored Dane Shahriyar Weissi, 1-2, over four. It was scored 39-37 twice and 40-36 but it was very close in the eyes of this reporter and I had a draw at 38-38.

Swedish light heavyweight Oscar "Golden Boy" Ahlin, 9-0, had to go the distance for the first time in his career as he outscored tough Italian-based Ukraine Sergey Demchenko, 14-6, over eight. Demchenko finished with several cuts, a badly marked up face and was badly shaken in the sixth but kept coming to give Ahlin a fine test - and Swede came through in good style winning on scores of 77-75, 78-74 and 77-76. I had it 79-73 for Oscar.

Oscar said afterwards he hurt his left hand in the second round and the right hand in the fourth and was almost unable to punch at the end.

Swedish jr. welterweight Anthony "do you dig it" Yigit, 5-0-1, and Brit Tony Pace, 4-5-1, drew over six hard fought rounds. It was scored 57-57 twice and 59-56 for Yigit, who appeared to have nicked it with his fine bodyshots. Pace worked hard though and made it close.

Swedish female super lightweight Klara Svensson, 11-0, outscored Bulgarian Milena Koleva, 5-5-1, over eight two minute rounds. It was scored 80-71, 77-75 and 77-74. Koleva had a point deducted in the fifth but it was difficult to detect for what. Svensson had big problems with her much smaller opponent but stronger down the stretch and won a close, but deserved win.

Deion Jumah, 3-0, opened SPAG´s show at the Tre-For-Arena with a unanimous decision after six rounds over Czech fighter Jiri Svacina, 12-11. Jumah won on scores of 60-54 twice and 59-54 but never had Svacina, a capable, tricky performer, in any kind of trouble.

Skoglund had a gutcheck there. And passed. Mock was always in the fight, but his age was showing. But boy did he have the arena in eruption when that right hand landed. He followed up with too much exitement and…
