Youth vs. experience as Skoglund faces Mock for EU Light Heavyweight Title

When Team Sauerland´s up-and-coming talent Erik Skoglund (17-0, 9 KOs) fights Danish veteran Lolenga Mock (31-13-1, 12 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night in Kolding on October 19, there will be more at stake than just the European Union Light Heavyweight Title.

It will also be a battle of rivalling teams, with Mock being represented by Hall of Fame Promoter Mogens Palle, who was present at today´s press conference at TRE-FOR Arena. “It´s always special to make a fight with Mogens,” Nisse Sauerland said. “It adds some spice to the fight, but clearly the focus should not be on the promoters but on the fighters in the ring. Skoglund versus Mock is an exciting match-up, a classic youth-versus-experience battle, and we´re very confident that Erik will beat Lolenga to become the new EU Champion.”

Skoglund, who trains in Germany, is looking forward to his biggest challenge to date. “It will be my toughest fight ever. I think Lolenga had his pro debut two weeks before I was born. I saw his last fight, it was very good, so I will prepared for 12 tough rounds against him. I have what it takes to beat him.”

Said Mock: “It´s going to be a good fight. Skoglund is an up-and-coming talent but I will win.”
