Svensson and Wallin secure victories in Copenhagen

Klara Svensson (15-0, 5 KOs) successfully defended her interim WBC World Light Welterweight title against Lucia Morelli (18-5, 8 KOs) at the Falconer Hall, at the Radisson Blu in Copenhagen. The 27 year-old outworked the tough Italian and at the final bell was ahead on all the judges’ scorecards (100-90, 100-91 & 99-91).

‘’Morelli was a tough opponent,’’ said Svensson. ‘’I was pleased with my performance and happy to beat such an experienced fighter. This is another step in the right direction for me and another step towards dominating the light welterweight division. I’m ready for the big fights in 2015.’’

Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’Klara kept her cool and performed well against a strong opponent. In her last two fights she has proved she belongs at world level. Next year will be looking to secure a world title fight for the Swedish Princess.’’

Otto Wallin (8-0, 6 KOs) made short work of Vjekoslav Bajic (8-8, 2 KOs). The Swedish heavyweight punished Bajic in the opening round and the Croatian was withdrawn at the beginning of the second round.
