Oscar Ahlin to make first-ever eight-rounder against Demchenko on October 19

KO king Oscar Ahlin (8-0, 8 KOs) will be looking for the next impressive win on his resume when he faces experienced Sirhey Demchenko (14-5, 10 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night in Kolding on October 19. For the first time of his career, Ahlin is slated to fight eight-rounds – if the fight goes the distance. The 23-year-old Swede has dispatched all of his previous eight opponents inside the distance, giving him a rare KO percentage of 100 percent. Demchenko, on the other hand, has clinched 10 of his 14 wins by KO. “This will be a fun fight,” Ahlin said. “Demchenko is experienced and quite durable.
