Illness rules Hampus Henriksson out of Saturday fight in Sweden

Hampus Henriksson (3-0, 1 KO) has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled contest with Moris Markowitsch (2-4-2, 2 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night on Saturday at the Sporthallen in Sundsvall, Sweden due to illness.

Henriksson, who is trained by legendary American coach Jimmy Montoya, was set to meet Markowitsch in a four-round light heavyweight contest, but having contracted the flu, the 22 year-old has been ruled unfit to compete.

Fans in Sundsvall can still look forward to an action-packed show at the Sporthallen, which is topped by hometown hero Otto Wallin, who challenges Italian Champion Gianluca Mandras for the WBA Continental Heavyweight title.

The undercard features a tough test female super welterweight Miakela Laurén versus Kita Watkins, plus fights for rising Swedish stars Oscar Ahlin, Kennedy Katende, Rocco Wadell, Patricia Berghult and Icelandic heavyweight Gunnar Kolbeinn Kristinsson.

Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night are available online via or by calling the ticket hotline on 0771-130 150. All the action will be shown live and exclusive across Scandinavia on Viaplay Fighting. For more information, please visit
