Oliver Flodin: Fourth pro bout set for June 2

Ringside 29/05/2018

Swedish middleweight Oliver Flodin (3-0) returns for his fourth professional contest against Nikoloz Gvajava (10-11-2, 7 KOs) on June 2 at the Swiss Life Hall in Hannover, Germany.

Flodin, the 22 year-old from Jonkoping, is back in action following a unanimous points win over Aliaksandr Dzemka on April 21 at the Gardehov in Sundsvall.

‘Wiseguy’, competing for the first time over six rounds, can expect a tough test from Gvajava, who held countryman Daniel Hartvig to a hard-fought draw in April 2016.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back in the ring and fighting in Hanover. There is always a good atmosphere when I box in Germany,” said Flodin.

“I was pleased with my last fight but there is always room for improvement, and I hope to produce an even better performance against Gvajava on June 2.

“I have not seen the fight between Hartvig and Gvajava but my manager Wally, who also worked with Daniel, knows my opponent well and we will put together a game plan to win.

“It will be fun to do my first six-round fight. I don’t see any problem going the distance. If the knockout come it comes, but I like to get rounds in the bank as it’s good for the future.”

Flodin fights on the undercard of the WBO International Cruiserweight title fight between Artur Mann and Alexander Peil. Swedish fight fans can watch the action live and exclusive on Viaplay Fighting. For more information visit: https://viaplay.se/fighting
