Horsens boxers Amer Rasinlic and Michael Nielsen will make their professional debuts on June 22 on the undercard of Dina Thorslund’s WBO Female World Super Bantamweight title defence against April Adams at the Forum Horsens.
“I am looking forward to getting the chance to box as a professional,” says light heavyweight Rasinlic. “Team Sauerland are one of the largest promotional companies in the world so this is a big opportunity for me, and to do it on the undercard of Dina Thorslund’s World title fight makes it even better!
“I know many people will come and watch me fight. I have many friends who love to watch boxing, and when I box in Horsens, I tend to get really good support. My family will certainly come too as it is a great thing for them also. Being allowed to enter the Forum Horsens for my debut is a dream come true!”
Nielsen, a former break-dancer, claimed gold in the 56 kg category at the 2018 Danish Elite Championships, and like his BK Vitus amateur teammate, is excited to be making his professional debut at the Forum Horsens.
“I want to show that it’s never too late to go for a dream,” he says. “I became Danish Elite Champion in 2018 in just my seventh fight and after only two years of training. I’ve trained hard to achieve my goals, and others can too.
“I feel honoured to have the opportunity to make my professional debut for one of the biggest promoters in the world, and at my home ground in Horsens. I am grateful to have this chance and will take it with both hands.
“I know that there will be a lot of support for me in Horsens. I have lived here since I came back from the Philippines in 1994. At home in Horsens, I will do everything I can to win. With so many spectators at my back, I must not lose!”
