Mads Larsen to fight Thompson on Arthur Abraham undercard this Saturday
Mads Larsen will return to the ring on March 29 when he takes on Ross Thompson on the Abraham undercard in Kiel. The former European super-middleweight champion is eager to gain some further ring experience to put himself into a position for a title fight later this year. “I have been practicing very hard and look forward to getting back into the ring,” Larsen said. “It is my goal to fight for a title this year and I have to stay in shape..”
It will be Larsen´s fifth fight since his comeback last May. In October, the Golden Boy (49-2, 37 KOs) saw off Emiliano Cayetano after defeating Nader Hamdan, Hector Javier Velazco and Vasily Andriyanov. “Kiel is not far from Denmark, so I am sure there will be many Danish fans coming over. That will be an additional motivation – it will be like a home match for me.”
34-year-old veteran Ross Thompson (26-11, 16 KOs), who has fought opponents like Kelly Pavlik and Jeff Lacy, has been in Germany sparring with European middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester.
