Latest Swedish News: George Scott/Armand Krajnc

By Teddy Stenmark: According to an article on Swedish website Nyheter 24 Former WBU-champion and Olympic silver medalist, Swede George Scott has switched sports and will now train and compete in Thai boxing. The former trained Angelo Dundee fighter has received an offer to fight at the big Martial Arts (K1) event Rumble of the Kings later this fall, and has apparently, if we are to believe the website, accepted the bout. Read the article in the original language down below – just click on the link!

Swedish based manager, Jason McClory has launched a brand new (and improved) website for his very promising string of fighters. Very easy to maneuver and perfect to use if you want info about Jason’s boxers. Check out the website on the link below!

Former WBO middleweight champion, Swede Armand Krajnc has a small cameo role in the latest (released) Wallander-movie “The Cellist” (original title “Cellisten”) based on the characters of bestselling author Henning Mankell. You can spot Krajnc on several occasions during the course of the film. He doesn’t have any lines but still has a significant part in the story.

The Women’s European Championships in Nikolayev, Ukraine was a huge success for the Scandinavian countries. Sweden and Norway both got a European champion to boast with. Jenny Hardingz (SWE) got the gold medal at 48 kilos and Lotte Lien struck gold in the 69 kilo category. Lien defeated Polish Katarzyna Furmuniak 5-0 in the finals and Hardingz got the verdict *2-2 (Punch count) over Russian Jelena Saveljeva.

Swedish junior middleweight, Maria Lindberg captured the vacant WIBF title outpointing Sara Davis from the UK in Germany (Ruelzheim) Saturday night 19/9, over 10 rounds. Pretty good work considering Maria only had four fights under her belt (3-o-2) going into the fight. Check out an article about the fight in The Local (Sweden’s News in English).
Wally Munteanu, the trainer and manager of Swedish junior middleweight, Daniel Hartvig (4-0, 2 KO) said to Scandinavian Boxing Blog over the phone that he has booked Hatvig for a fight in Philadelphia, USA on the 4th of December. Hartvig who had an absence of more than a year (fought last time in March of 2008), will be a welcomed return once he comes back, probably one of the most talented fighters from Sweden to hit the professional ranks in recent years.

It is reported in local press around Norrkoping, Sweden where undefeated Swedish heavyweight, Andreas Gustafsson (3-0) lives that Andreas might get former K1-fighter Robert Gregor of Slovakia in his next fight in Haninge, Stockholm, Sweden October 3, but the unpredictable world of professional boxing doesn’t guarantee anything. Don’t be surprised if that name switches in the days to come,
