Skoglund Suffers Sparring Injury, Dimitrenko's Opponent Falls Out

By Per Ake Persson

Swedish super middleweight/light heavyweight Erik Skoglund was injured last night in sparring in Nykoping (Sweden) and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, reports Aftonbladet. There isn´t much else to report. It is not known what kind of injury it is or how serious it is.

Skoglund lost to Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinals in September in what was his first fight at super middle after previously campaigning at light heavy and was set to fight Rocky Fielding December 17 on the Bellew-Haye II undercard in London.

As the Bellew-Haye fight was postponed to next May, Erik was waiting for a new date but remained as always in training and is known to be a very serious, dedicated boxer who is always in shape.

More to come.

Adnan Redzovic is out with an injury for the planned fight against IBF Int´l champ Aleksander Dimitrenko on December 22 in Hamburg. No substitute has been announced.

Dimitrenko, who knocked out Adrian Granat in March to win the title and put new life into his career, is now also official challenger for EBU champ Agit Kabayel, who in turn made a name for himself by beating Dereck Chisora in November in Monaco.

A Kabayel vs Dimitrenko showdown looks like a very interesting fight for early 2018.

IN OTHER NEWS: European champion, Natasha Gale, won her first GB Boxing title last night in front of her home crowd at the GB Boxing Championships at the English Institute of Sport Sheffield.

It was part of a night of excellent boxing which saw 14 boxers crowned GB Boxing Champion and featured a tense box-off for a 2018 Commonwealth Games spot between two Scottish boxers.

Local favourite, Gale, overcame Roseanna Cox in a scrappy contest to confirm her status as Great Britain’s leading female middleweight as women from the GB Boxing squad asserted their dominance of the domestic scene by winning all five categories with victories for Lisa Whiteside (flyweight), Crystal Barker (featherweight), Lauren Price (welterweight) and Claudia Havranek (light-welterweight).

If he was taken by ambulance it must have been somewhat serious hopefully what was just posted is not the case but if it is his career is finished the only thing one can hope for is good health and…
