One of boxing’s heroes Lolenga Mock is determined to finish a 28-year professional career by claiming the IBA Inter-Continental super-middleweight crown in Aarhus on May 18.
The 46-year-old was controversially denied a WBC world title shot by a majority decision last year and now looks to bow out with revenge for January’s narrow points loss to Mateo Damian Veron.
Mock said: “This is my jubilee fight – my 60th as a professional boxer and I want to make my fans happy on this special day for my career.
“For the first time in 28 years as a professional fighter, I’m going to be fighting for a version of the world title and that is very special to me.
“I’m very motivated for this fight. When I met Veron in January, my preparation for the fight fell apart completely but if I say ‘yes’ to something, I show up so I didn’t cancel.
“That night, my fans didn’t get to see the true Lolenga Mock in the fight and that’s why securing this rematch for my jubilee fight was so important to me.
“Now, people will see the real Lolenga Mock – 100% focused, 100% heart and 100% warrior.”
Mock, who started his professional career way back in 1991, famously knocked down future unified and multi-weight world champion David Haye in 2003.
