After coming up short against some of the best Middleweights in the world, Poland’s Robert Swierzbinski is looking to get his career back on track when he squares off with Timo Laine from Finland for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Middleweight title on Saturday September 24.
With a record of 16-6-1 (3), Swierzbinski can look back at a career that has so far brought him fights against the likes of contenders Chris Eubank Jr., Tommy Langford and Maciej Sulecki, as well as former world champions David Lemieux and Hassan N´dam N´jikam.
While he lost to those big names, it has given him plenty of top-level experience, and now he will get an opportunity to shine on home ground, for a change, in front of his own fans, when he faces 32-year-old Laine at the Hala Szkoly Podstawowej in his home-town Bialystok.
Timo Laine, a former Finnish national champion, is 15-7 (4) since turning professional in 2010. In his most recent outing, this past July, he lost a brave WBO Intercontinental title-challenge to common foe Tommy Langford, so just like Swierzbinski he will be aiming to rebound on a high note.
As the main event of a show labelled Tiger Speed Boxing Night, the Robert Swierzbinski vs. Timo Laine WBF International title fight is presented by Darek Snarski Boxing Production, and will be televised live in Poland by TVP Sport.
