Yigit to fight Needham in Albertslund

Swedish light welterweight Anthony Yigit (8-0-1, 3 KOs) will face British boxer Terry Needham (6-1, 2 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night in Albertslund on February 15th.

This will be Yigit’s tenth-fight as a professional and the 22 year-old is pleased with his progress so far. ‘’I feel like I have adapted to the professional game,’’ said Yigit. ‘’I had a lot of amateur fights so at first it was a little difficult and I needed some time but now it is all coming together. I have a really good connection with my coach Joey Gamache. He knows what I need to think about and what I need to do in the ring, that has really helped me to develop a professional style.’’

Local boxer Patrick Nielsen (21-0, 10 KOs) will headline the show at the Albertslund MusikTeatret. Nielsen fights American Tony Jeter (16-3, 11 KOs) for the WBC Silver Middleweight title. Tickets are available at http://www.billetnet.dk.
