Skoglund retains European (EU) Light Heavyweight Title

Erik Skoglund successfully defended his European (EU) Light Heavyweight Title with a ninth-round stoppage of Danilo D’Agata at the Nordic Fight Night in Esbjerg, Denmark.

The 22 year-old outclassed his awkward opponent to remain undefeated and secure his twentieth professional victory.

‘’It was a good fight,’’ said Skoglund. ‘’D’Agata was a tricky opponent. He had a good jab and was difficult to reach. I knew that as the fight went on he would tire and I would be able to get to him. I was pleased to get the stoppage.’’

Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’This was a great win for Erik. He overcame a difficult opponent who could have potentially given him some problems. Erik has showed tonight that he is world class and I believe he is ready to fight for a bigger title.’’
