Erik Skoglund vs. Timy Shala Set For October 28 in Nykoping

By Per Ake Persson

IBF # 3, EBU # 1, WBC # 9, WBO # 5 and WBA # 15 light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (25-0) take on Austrian Timy Shala (21-1-1, EBU # 18) on October 28 in Nykoping (Sweden) writes sn.se in the headliner of a Sauerland promotion.

The fight will be a twelve rounder and is thus under the special Swedish Martial Arts Law and require special permission from the Martial Arts Delegation so it´s not yet 100% on and it´s not announced by Sauerland yet.

Skoglund has been world rated for some time now and do have some good wins but have never fought a genuine contender and in Shala he faces an opponent who holds a decent win over touch Czech Tomas Adamek and a loss against current WBO # 1 Dominic Boesel but not much else.

IN OTHER NEWS:  FIGHTS are coming thick and fast for flame-haired Irishman Chris Blaney – and he’s loving it.
 
The Navan man, 24, turned professional with an explosive one round knockout of David Bauza earlier this summer and he’s already got his next two fights lined up.
 
This Friday night “The Ginja Ninja” will face Kiril Psonko on Hatton Promotions and Black Country’s six-fight card at the Banks’s Stadium in Walsall. After that, he will turn his attention to an appearance in Stoke on October 1.
 
“I just love boxing so I’ll take any fight that comes my way,” Blaney, a ten-time Irish amateur champion, said.
 
“I was originally preparing for October 1, but Ricky pulled me to one side the other day and told me I could box in Walsall as well if I wanted to.
 
“It’s short notice, but I jumped at the chance. I’m always fit and ready to go and this is an opportunity to add another win to my record.”
 
Blaney, who has been compared to Canelo Alvarez, upped sticks from the Emerald Isle and moved to Manchester to work with boxing legend Ricky Hatton earlier this year.
 
“I love having Ricky as my trainer as well as my promoter. I’ve been boxing since I was eight years old and I’m still learning every day.
 
“Ricky has shown me some little tiny things that nobody has shown me before and they’re making me stronger and faster.”
