Lihaug will be leading the Norwegian invasion. The WBO Youth World Champion returns following the second-round stoppage of Slavisa Simeunovic at the Ballerup Super Arena in March and will be eager to continue his unbeaten run. Joining the 22 year-old super middleweight star is former opponent Simen Smaadal and light heavyweight prospect Alexander Hagen, who both enjoyed KO victories when they last laced gloves in Frederikshavn earlier this year.
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ”Norwegian fans can look forward to a fantastic night of boxing in Copenhagen with three of the country’s top boxing talents in action. All three guarantee excitement, as evident from their last performances. I expect no different when they enter the ring on May 2.”
Opponents for the Norwegian fighters will be announced shortly. The action-packed show in Copenhagen also features the WBC Female World Light Welterweight Championship fight between Klara Svensson (15-0, 5 KOs) and Erica Anabella Farias (21-1, 10 KOs), and Micki Nielsen’s (17-0, 12 KOs) WBC International Cruiserweight title defence against Junior Anthony Wright (13-0-1, 11 KOs).
Team Sauerland present the ‘Nordic Fight Night – Going For Gold’ on May 2 at the Frederiksberg-Hallerne in Copenhagen. All the action will be broadcast live on Viasat channels across Scandinavia. Tickets are available via billetlugen.dk.
