Jamshid Nazari pushing for 4-0 on March 2 in Arendal

RINGSIDE 26/01/2019

Jamshid Nazari (3-0, 1 KO) continues his promising career on March 2 with a six-round welterweight clash against Ivica Gogosevic (12-24-2, 5 KOs) on the undercard of Kai Robin Havnaa’s cruiserweight showdown with Rad Rashid.

Nazari is the latest addition to an action-packed show in Arendal, and following victories over Bakar Gelenidze, Nika Nalikashvili and Richard Walter, the Kristiansand-boxer says he is excited to be fighting so close to home.

“I’m looking forward to putting on a great show on March 2 at the SØR Amfi in Arendal,” said Nazari. “Ivica Gogosevic is a strong, experienced opponent, who I’m sure is going to give me a good fight.

“Fighting in Arendal will be like fighting at home. It will be my first time fighting so close to home, so I’m expecting to have a lot of fans coming to support me.”

Although only 26 years old, Nazari has already experienced a lot in life. At the age of 14, he was forced to flee his native Afghanistan after both parents were killed, eventually arriving in Norway, where he discovered his talent for boxing.

When asked what he hopes to achieve in his professional boxing career, the talented fighter does not mention World titles, money or fame, rather he responds: “I want to be a role model for the Afghan & Norwegian youth.”

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.

Katharina Thanderz provides chief support with a super featherweight clash against unbeaten Brit Rachel Ball, Hadi Srour meets Zoltan Szabo, Anders Eggan faces Frane Radnic and Jamshid Nazari takes on Ivica Gogosevic.
