Q Boxing Promotion in Denmark announced today two new signings in comebacking super middleweight Patrick Nielsen (29-3) and middleweight Landry Kore (10-0-1). Nielsen was last seen boxing 18 months ago when he lost a close, split decision to Arthur Abraham in Germany. Kore has been around since 2013 in a self promoted career and has done well on the road.
Meanwhile Nielsen´s younger brother Micki appears to be headed for an early retirement due to reoccurring hand injuries.
Patrick Nielsen, last seen losing to Mark O Madsen in an MMA fight, fights October 5 on the next - and second Q Boxing show - in Gilleleje. This show also features British world traveler Ashley Theopane (47-8-1) who takes on Kim Poulsen (28-5) in a super welterweight contest.
Danish heavyweight Kem Ljungquist (9-0) is in Las Vegas sparring with Tyson Fury.
Ljungquist is like Fury´s September 14 opponent Otto Wallin a tall, well schooled southpaw. Kem will stay in the Fury camp until September 7 with three sparring sessions a week scheduled.
Team Sauerland´s Swedish Princess Klara Svensson (18-2) has announced her retirement. Svensson has been semi-retired for some time now but made the retirement official today.
She lost to Cecilia Braekhus in 2017 after a rather disappointing performance and has fought only once since then.
Petko´s Box Promotion return to Berlin October 26 with a show billed as "Unfinished Business". Topping the bill are light heavies Nick Hannig (7-0-1) and South African veteran Ryno Liebenberg (19-6-1). They drew the first time around with Hannig building an early lead but Liebenberg came on strong at the end.
It´s the fourth time Liebenberg fights in Germany and he is 0-2-1 but had the fights been at home it could have been 3-0.
Swedish Fight Life Promotions have heavyweight Pezhman Seifkhani (10-0), welterweight Patricia Berghult (12-0), light heavy Marco Calic (9-0) and super welter Emil Pettersson (2-0) on a show in Shkoder (Albania) September 21. Later in the fall Fight Life will promote a big event at home in Orebro (Sweden).
