Scandinavian News: Ingman Wins In Philly

By Teddy Stenmark: Female Swedish welterweight, Anna Ingman won her bout at The legendary Blue Horizon in Philadelphia Friday night against American Cimberly Harris on points over six rounds. Mark Breland her US-trainer was according to reports very pleased with her performance, as was the promoters who didn’t rule out having her back in December for the nextt show.

Good for Ingman who now of course is a free agent, acting alone, but seems willing to get someone to back her up. Anna moved to 6-0, 1 KO while Harris dropped to 5-13.


Norwegian welterweight, Geir-Inge Jörgensen took a fight in Lublin, Poland (October 3) on fairly short notice, but came out with flying colors anyway, knocking out Spaniard, Armando Candel in the first round of a scheduled six rounder. The talented Scandinavian keeps winning, this being his 27th victory in 28 fights, but he just isn’t climbing the rankings as fast as he would have liked. He should be a solid 10 round fighter now aspiring for a European title fight but it is just not happening. We (all the fans) agree on one thing, Jörgensen needs to take a few chances to move his career forward. He is not doing bad, he is just not getting the right fights. At least that is the way it seems.


The pullout of Arthur Abraham (against Raul Marquez) from the show in Germany Saturday night (4/10 – the whole show was postponed until November) left Finnish heavyweight Robert Helenius without a fight, and that was a shame of course for Robert who needs to stay busy. Scandinavian fans were really disappointed as the card was pinned on a Scandinavian cable channel (Viasat Sport).


Former Swedish amateur champion, Akilles Adnan - welterweight , just 20 years old ( born 1988) but a real good prospect moved to 2-0 as a professional, by stopping Pole Sebastian Wywalec in Zielkonka, Poland Friday night (October 3). Adnan has a fight booked in Tidaholm, Sweden in December but it is more than likely that he squeezes in a couple of more fights in between that one.


Look out for giant Dane, Morten Poulsen in the professional ranks ahead, the towering boxer who is one of Denmark’s tallest men, (2,19 centimeters) has decided to go pro and aim for the Russian market according to Danish press reports. Lars Bjarke, a close friend of Paulsen will steer his career to begin with. I saw a video of Poulsen train, and despite his almost freakish height he looked pretty useful. Perhaps a Danish version of Nikolai Valuev, who knows!
