Alexander Hagen (7-1, 2 KOs) returns to action on September 19 against Alessandro Buriola (4-2, KOs). The Norwegian talent is the latest addition to Team Sauerland’s historic Swedish show at the Rosvalla Stora Ishallen at the Nyköpings Arenor in Nyköping, Sweden.

For the first time since 1968 a major title will be contested on Swedish soil when IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Champion Erik Skoglund (22-0, 11 KOs) defends his title against Oleksandr Cherviak (15-4-1, 5 KOs).

On the undercard, Hagen, who is now training with former Norwegian pro boxer Thomas Hansvoll, will be hoping to claim his eighth professional victory when he takes on the Italian Buriola.

’’Buriola is a competent boxer with good technique,’’ said Hagen ‘’Italians tend generally to be more unorthodox than classic European boxers, who can be somewhat static in their boxing, and Buriola is no exception. But I’m confident in my own ability and I look forward to claiming another victory in front of the Swedish fans!’’

Hagen is already in Nyköping where he has been sparring with Skoglund ahead of the Swedes homecoming fight, and the Flekkefjord boxer believes these tough sessions will ensure both are ready for their September 19 clashes.

‘’Sparring with Erik is great preparation for me,’’ said the 26 year-old. ‘’I‘m learning something new everyday here in Nyköping, and I can't wait to showcase it come September 19.

‘’I’ve sparred with Erik many times before when he was based in Berlin, and I know him well, but I have never seen him as sharp and as hungry as he is now.

‘’I’m amazed at how quickly he has been able to recover from the major back surgery he went through. He’s back and stronger than ever! He’s already in top shape and will be more than ready to retain his title!’’
