Ceylan back in action on August 16

Dennis ‘’The Menace’’ Ceylan (12-0, 6 KOs) is back in action on August 16. The Danish featherweight will face Cristian Montilla (6-3, 3 KOs) at the Erfurt Exhibition Hall in Thuringia, Germany.

Ceylan is coming off the back of the impressive first-round knockout of Dzmitri Agafonau in May. Following a short summer break the undefeated talent is ready to dust off his gloves and pick up where he left off.

‘’I had a short break after my last fight in May and then it was straight back into the gym,’’ said Ceylan. ‘’My conditioning is great so all that’s left now is a little fine-tuning and I will be ready for August 16. I have watched some videos of Montilla and he looks like a strong opponent but of course I will be stronger.

‘’It’s a great experience to come and fight in Germany. I believe it makes me a better fighter. To be the best, I have to perform no matter where I fight. It doesn’t matter if I’m in Denmark or Germany I have a job to do.’’

Topping the bill at the Erfurt Exhibition Hall on August 16 will be the IBF World Cruiserweight Championship clash between Yoan Pablo Hernandez and Firat Arslan. Tickets are available at
