The Champion effect

Swedish light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (21-0, 11 KOs) has announced his desire to challenge for a world title in 2015. The 23 year-old, who is unbeaten in twenty-one professional contests and ranked #4 with the WBO and #5 with the IBF, believes that within the next twelve months he will be ready to take on the best in the division.

Female boxing’s pound-for-pound number one Cecilia Brækhus has hit back at claims from Ronda Rousey’s coach that the UFC Champion could win a world title in her first boxing match.

Mateusz Masternak (32-2, 23 KOs) begins his journey back to the top of the cruiserweight division when he takes on Gabor Halasz (35-15, 15 KOs) on September 27 in Kiel, Germany. ‘The Master’ returns following his interim World title points defeat to Youri Kalenga, bolstered by the new man in his corner, world renowned German coach Ulli Wegner.

Oscar Ahlin (10-0, 9 KOs) improved to 10-0 with the technical knock out of Latvian ‘Viking’ Olegs Fedotovs (18-16, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the SSE Arena, Wembley.
