Terbunja Finally To Debut, Two Years After Haymon Deal

By Per Ake Persson

Tomorrow night, WBC female jr. lightweight champ Frida Wallberg defends the title in Linkoeping, Sweden, against American challenger Amanda Serrano. The fight is scheduled for ten-two minute rounds, which is the standard distanse for female title fights - but in Sweden it´s a special distance and one that requires an exception of the rules from the local delegation (MAD).

Also on the undercard to Wallberg vs. Serrano is super middleweight Naim Terbunja, who will make his pro debut against Vladimir Spasojevic. Naim won eight Swedish championships as an amateur and also the New York Golden Gloves. During his brief stay in the United States, he signed with powerful manager/adviser Al Haymon. However, for reasons unknown, Terbunja never got his visa and as a result he was kept waiting but now he finally make his debut - close to two years after signing the contract with Haymon.
 
Back after a lenghty layoff is welterweight Benjamin Kalinovic, who turned pro in 2004 but got into a contractual dispute with an American promoter, returned home and tried to continue his career but dropped out after continued problems to get fights. Kalinovic faces Hassan Ssaku.
