Danish heavyweight Ljungquist faces Bunga on June 16

Danish heavyweight Kem Ljungquist (3-0, 2 KOs) is set to face Andre Bunga (4-11-1, 4 KOs) in a six-round contest on June 16 at the Ballhaus Forum in Munich, Germany.

The Herlev boxer is back in action following a second-round knockout win over Frantisek Kohout in Struer on March 10, and returns to Germany for a third-time having previously recorded victories in Schwerin and Ludwigsburg.

“I’m looking forward to fighting in Germany again,” he says. “This will be my third time boxing there as a professional and I really enjoy it. I do a lot of my training in Germany, and it’s very close to Denmark, so it’s like my second home.”

Ljungquist, a former three-time national and two-time Nordic amateur champion, is expecting a solid test from the Angolan-born German, but recognises it as a test he must pass in order to progress with his promising career.

“Andre Bunga is a tough fighter,” says the Danish fighter. “He’s fought some really high class opponents so he will be a good test for me. However, I want to be fighting for titles sooner rather than later so I need to be beating guys like Bunga right now.”

When asked for his prediction, Ljungquist admits he is confident of extending his unbeaten run. "I will claim my fourth professional victory against Bunga in Munich," he exclaims.
