Otto Wallin Makes Rapid Return; Ahlin Faces Sosa

Otto Wallin (8-0, 6 KOs) is back in action on Saturday night following his devastating second-round TKO victory over Vjekoslav Bajic last weekend. The Swedish heavyweight takes on Croatian Jakov Gospic (15-10, 11 KOs) at the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany.
 
‘’I was really pleased with my performance last weekend. I had been training really hard and I think that showed in the ring,’’ said Wallin.

‘’I’m looking forward to fighting again so soon. Bajic only lasted one round so I still feel fresh and I’m ready to get another victory. I think Gospic will be a step up. I expect him to pose more problems than Bajic, but if the opportunity comes for another early stoppage, I’m going to take it. I want to finish the year on a high!’’
 
Wallin is the latest addition to a bumper bill in Oldenburg. Juergen Braehmer defends his WBA World Light Heavyweight Champion against Pawel Glazewski, Jack Culcay meets Karim Merroudj for the European Light Middleweight title and rising German super middleweight star Tyron Zeuge takes on Stjepan Bozic for the IBF International crown. Tickets available via eventim.de.

Swedish talent Oscar Ahlin (10-0, 9 KOs) faces Pablo Sosa (3-3-3, 2 KOs) on December 13 at the Albertslund MusikTeatret in Copenhagen.
 
“This is a really good test for me, Sosa is a strong opponent and this fight will give me an indication of what level I‘m at,’’ said Ahlin.
 
“I usually knock my opponents out but this guy can really take a punch so it’s going to be interesting, maybe I’ll get a chance to try something new. But let’s see he how handles my power!”
 
Sosa has proved a tricky opponent for several top boxers. He went the distance with Ahlin’s countryman Erik Skoglund and former German Olympian Enrico Kölling, eventually losing to both on points. In his last fight, the Argentine held former European Champion Eduard Gutknecht to a draw.
 
“Styles makes fights so it’s difficult for me to say if I will do better than Skoglund or the others he has faced, but there’s no doubt that I can send a big message by beating him convincingly.”
 
The promising matchup in Albertslund is set for eight rounds. Ahlin is joined in action by Swedish stable mates Erik Skoglund, who faces former world champion Glen Johnson, and Anthony Yigit, who takes on Gianluca Ceglia.
