By Per Ake Persson

Sauerland Promotion have a big show in the works for Stockholm (Sweden) with April 15 as the working date. Headlining the show is IBF Intercontinental champion Erik Skoglund (24-0) against South African Ryno Liebenberg (17-2).

Skoglund is near the top with all major bodies but this fight is probably is biggest test to date and it´s a good matchup between a tactical, well schooled boxer and an agressive brawler.

In the chief support Mikaela Lauren (26-3) will defend the WBC female super welterweight title against an opponent to be announced. Lauren just signed a long term deal with Team Sauerland.
