Landry Kore (9-0-1, 5 KOs) and Joanna Ekedahl (8-0, 3 KOs) are confirmed for a huge night of boxing at the Forum Horsens on June 22 as Dina Thorlsund defends her WBO World Super Bantamweight title against April Adams.
Kore, the reigning IBO Mediterranean Champion from Copenhagen, will be fighting in Denmark for the first time since 2016 having gone on the road to claim victories in America, Belgium and Britain before fighting to a draw against Faton Vukshinaj at the CongressPark in Wolfsburg in April.
“It‘s a great feeling to fight in my home country Denmark on a Team Sauerland card again after almost three years,” said Kore, who will face Tomas Bezvoda (6-6, 3 KOs) in a six-round contest. “I‘m delighted to give the fans in Horsens the pleasure of seeing the number one middleweight in the country.”
Ekedahl returns to Denmark after the second-round TKO of Alina Samsonova in Struer last August. The 29 year-old from Stockholm has impressed so far in her professional career and will look to continue her unbeaten run as she takes on Serbia’s Jelena Janicijevic (2-1, 2 KOs) over six rounds.
Kore and Ekedahl join an action-packed undercard in Horsens that features Danish heavyweight hope Kem Ljungquist, Norwegian cruiserweight Kai Robin Havnaa, super featherweight Frederik Hede Jensen, Vejle super middleweight Haris Dzindo and Horsens boxers Michael Nielsen and Amer Rasinlic.
