Middleweight prospect Oliver Flodin opponent set for Oct 27 bout
Swedish middleweight Oliver Flodin (1-0) will face Pavel Hryshkavets (3-2, 2 KOs) in his second professional test on October 27 in Schwerin, Germany.
The 21 year-old started his paid career in style with a unanimous points victory over Hungary’s Richard Hegyi on September 30 at the Solnahallen in Stockholm.
The former amateur star will be hoping to improve to 2-0 when he fights on the undercard of the World Boxing Super Series quarter-final contest between Juergen Braehmer and Rob Brant at Schwerin’s Sport and Congress Center.
“I felt very please with my professional debut,’’ said the boxer from Jonkoping. “I had a good feeling in the ring and the plan we set before the fight worked out really well. The atmosphere in the Solnahallen was really good too.
“I’m looking forward to fighting in Germany on a World Boxing Super Series show. My training has been good and I’m in great shape. It’s going to be an amazing experience and I want to give the audience an exciting show.”
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: “This is a great opportunity for Oliver to showcase his skills on the big stage. He impressed on his professional debut and we’re expecting an even better performance on October 27 in Schwerin.”
