Skoglund Update, Castano-Vitu News, Badou Jack, Wallin, More

By Per Ake Persson

Erik Skoglund is back home in Nykoping and has been seen walking on his own with the support of one crutch. Erik writes on social media that a long period of rehab awaits and thanks his fans and friends for all the support.

It was December 8 that Skoglund was injured during sparring and was taken to hospital where he had surgery for some kind of brain bleed.

Skoglund was last seen losing a decision to Callum Smith in September in the World Boxing Super Series Quarterfinals at super middleweight. He was then set to fight Rocky Fielding December 17 but that fight was called off when the main event - Bellew vs Haye II - was postponed.
