Unbeaten light heavies collide

Team Sauerland has announced that Erik Skoglund (15-0, 9 KOs) will take on fellow unbeaten youngster Luke Blackledge (13-0-1, 5 KOs) for the WBC Youth light heavyweight title in Frederikshavn on April 13. Blackledge came to fame last June when he knocked out Danish star Mads Larsen in the fourth round. He was originally slated to face Rudy Markussen, but a neck injury forced Markussen to pull out of the fight. In the main event, WBA, WBC & WBO female welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus will be defending her titles against Mia St. John.
