Forsman vows KO against Mononen in Finnish cruiserweight title bout on 6th October

Rising Finnish professional boxing stable Caramelito Promotions promoted its 16th show early September in Vaasa Finland and is now preparing for its next own show on early 2013. Meanwhile stable´s boxers are taking part in a couple of other shows before that.

Undefeated cruiserweight fighter Janne Forsman (5-0, 2 KO) is making his first attempt for titles as professional when challenging countryman Marko Mononen (4-0, 0 KO) for Finnish national and Baltic Boxing Union (BBU) title in Joensuu Finland on 6.10.2012 in a lone pro bout of the show which is promoted by Boxing Finlandia -stable´s Jarmo Tolvanen who also coaches Mononen.

-I will make a robbery on that show by knocking out home boxer. I´m sure that Boxing Finlandia has made much work to promote that show and somehow I feel sorry for them but the night will be bitter for them and especially for their boxer Marko Mononen, promises confident Janne Forsman from Caramelito Promotions.

-Janne is already now in great shape and he will give the best show of his career this far on that special evening in Joensuu. We will have one more sparring camp here in Vaasa to prepare our team ready for that robbery, says Petro Koskimies, who manages and coaches Janne Forsman.

Katajisto eyes quick return to ring
Caramelito Promotions´ reigning Finnish national and BBU heavyweight titlist Janne Katajisto who holds almost perfect 11-0-1, 5 KO record scored the career´s best victory this far when he took well-earned unanimous decision victory over former world title challenger and former British champion Danny Williams on 8.9.2012 in Vaasa.

-After the bout I have taken some rest and healed my hand which I slightly injured on that match, but I´m looking for one more bout during this year because I´m pretty sure that I´m only one victory away from rising to EU-rankings in heavyweight division, says Janne Katajisto.
