Anders Eggan unfazed by March 2 opponent’s powerful reputation

RINGSIDE 23/01/2019

Anders Eggan (3-0, 1 KO) will face Frane Radnic (11-11, 10 KOs) on the undercard of Kai Robin Havnaa’s hometown cruiserweight showdown with Rad ‘Thunder’ Rashid on March 2 at the SØR Amfi in Arendal.

Eggan is a former Norwegian national and Nordic junior amateur champion, who has also competed at both World and European Amateur Championships.

Having made his professional debut on October 21, 2017, with a unanimous points win over Lewis van Poetsch in Stokke, the 23 year-old has gone on to claim victories over Dumitru Nicu Manea in La Nucia, Spain and Maksym Onyshchenko at the Kolstad Arena in his hometown of Trondheim

“I’m really excited for this fight. I feel really good, and I love to fight in front of a Norwegian crowd. I’ve heard that the people in Arendal make a lot of noise, so I want to bring an exciting fight with high entertainment value,” says Eggan ahead of his six-round clash with Croatia’s Frane Radnic.

“I respect every opponent, but all my focus is on me. I can’t do anything about my opponents, so I don’t waste my thoughts on them. I will need to bring my A-game as I know Radnic is a good boxer. I’m looking forward to sharing the ring with him, and I hope we have a great and entertaining fight.”

Radnic has recorded ten of his eleven victories inside the distance, an impressive statistic, but not something Eggan admits to being worried about.

“It is what it is,” he says. “I’m used to fighting powerful boxers so I’m not worried. It’s all part of the game. I’ll bring my best boxing, and that’ll be enough.

“I plan to do a lot of physical training for this fight, so I can come in stronger than ever. I want to give the crowd power and technique combined! I also have a lot of different sparring partners that will help me with my preparations.

“I promise an entertaining fight. I like to entertain and I love to bring excitement. I’m not scared to take risks. I want to make boxing look pretty.”

Boxing is not Eggan’s only profession, and when out of the ring, he is equally comfortable in front of a camera working as a professional model.

“I like the combination of modelling and boxing,” he says. “Boxing is my main priority, and I love a good brawl, but as said, I want to make boxing look pretty!”

Kai Robin Havnaa returns to the SØR Amfi in Arendal on March 2 to headline his hometown arena in his toughest career test against Rad Rashid.

Hadi Srour meets Zoltan Szabo in a six-round super lightweight contest, while middleweight Anders Eggan takes on Frane Radnic also over six-rounds.
