Danish female super bantamweight Dina Thorslund has signed a long-term promotional contract with Europe’s leading boxing promoter Team Sauerland.
The 22 year-old from Copenhagen has impressed since joining the paid ranks last year, claiming five victories including three first-round knockouts, and gaining legions of fans with her explosive style and concussive punching power.
Having signed with Team Sauerland, Thorslund will prove an exciting addition to the Nordic Fight Night series, starting on March 19, when she makes her promotional debut on the undercard of Micki Nielsen’s WBC International Cruiserweight title fight with Giacobbe Fragomeni at the Albertslund MusikTeatret.
‘’I’m very happy to have signed with Team Sauerland,’’ said Thorlsund. ‘’They are Europe’s biggest boxing promoters, and I look forward to working with them on many great fights.
‘’There were other options out there for me, but I was never in any doubt. I want to be involved in big fights, and I know with Team Sauerland, I have the right promoter to deliver these for me.
‘’My goal is to win titles. I already feel as though I’m ready to take the EBU title and after that I want to challenge for all the major World titles. I’m confident I will be able to bring these belts home to Denmark and give the Danish fans some exciting fights to look forward to.
‘’I can’t wait to get back in the ring on March 19. I was born and raised in Copenhagen, so there will be lots of people coming to support me in Albertslund. I have already started my training and feel in great shape. The fans can expect an aggressive Dina Thorslund in the ring. I want to show everybody what I can do and start the New Year with a bang!’’
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland. ‘’We’re delighted to welcome Dina to the team. She is an exceptional talent and I expect her to become a dominant force in female boxing for many years to come. The Nordic Fight Night is all about showcasing the very best boxers from Denmark, Norway and Sweden, and with Dina we have a future star of the sport.’’
