31.03.07 – By Per Ake Persson: A new promotional company has been formed in Sweden: Pro Box Events Inc with Anders Holmberg, Kjell Tuvemark and Benny Rosen as founders. All are well known in the Swedish boxing community. The first show is planned for September 15 in Karlstad at the big Lofbergs Lila Arena. Backing the event is Farjestads Icehockey Team, one of the best in Sweden and the owner of Lofbergs Lila Arena..
Pro Box Events plan to stage a show with ten fights and have applied to the Martial Arts Delegation to put on three bouts with six three minute rounds. The max distance have previously been four threes.
Previously Holmberg, CEO for the new company, had planned to do the show with New Sweden Boxing Promotion, this far alone on the market, but now he is on his own.
Pro Box Event will also sponsor the new Boxning Magazine, the trade paper that were forced to shut down late last year but now have been revived.
More detailed plans for the September 15 show will be announced April 12 in Karlstad but a local paper reveals that female middleweight Aasa Sandell will be featured in one of the main bouts against Theresa Perozzi with the WBE and WIBC titles at stake. Also on for the show are heavyweights Mikael Lindblad, Johan Thorbjornsson and jr middle Daniel Hartvig.
