Thorslund: "Radovanovic Won’t
Last 10 Rounds With Me"
WBO Super Bantamweight World Champion Dina Thorslund (14-0,
6 KOs) is planning on a knockout victory over Serbia’s Nina
Radovanovic (14-3, 3 KOs) when they meet on September 26th
at the Struer Energi Park in Struer, Denmark.
Thorslund, who is also trained as a physiotherapist and
personal trainer, has implemented her expertise to increase
her punching power as she plans on claiming the seventh
knockout victory of her professional career.
“If I see the opportunity, I will take the chance to end the
fight before the last bell,” said Thorslund. “Radovanovic
has been on the deck before after being hit downstairs. I’m
a good body puncher so if I hit her well, I expect her to go
“I think this training camp has given me more power,”
continued the unbeaten 26-year-old. “I’ve introduced
CrossFit into my training regime and by working on different
movements I have improved my stability and balance. And with
greater stability you can hit better, so I feel like I have
really benefited from these changes.”
Thorslund, who will defend her WBO Super Bantamweight World
title for the third time on September 26th, last fought in
June 2019 when she comfortably outpointed mandatory
challenger April Adams. After an extended period outside the
ring, Thorslund is looking forward to stepping back through
“I’m so excited to be fighting again! I can’t wait to get
into the ring again and hear the fans in Struer. It’s been a
long wait but I’ve kept myself ready and I’m in super shape.
My opponent comes to fight and will give everything to
become a World Champion, but I don’t think she can last 10
rounds with me.”
Dina Thorslund’s World title defence against Nina
Radovanovic headlines an action packed night of boxing on
September 26th that will also see Croatian heavyweight
sensation Filip Hrgović (10-0, 8 KOs) returning to action.
Team Sauerland’s latest signing Oliver Zaren (2-0, 2 KOs)
will make his promotional debut against Volodymyr Romanenko
(9-9, 8 KOs) and exciting Danish prospects Oliver Mollenberg
(5-0-1, 3 KOs), Payman Akbari (1-0, 1 KO) & Jacob Bank
(Pro-debut) also feature on the undercard.
