How does it feel to be back and defend the middleweight title in The Zone FC again?
– It feels very good to fight for family and friends again. It is an opportunity for them to get a closer look at what I do and the time I sacrifice to keep on with what I do. The fight at The Zone is a special feeling. This is where I made my debut and gone have gone many matches there. I look forward to a really tough international opposition for my first title defense.
You were ready for title fight in CW, but did not materialize due to injury. Are you fully recovered now?
– The injury was a stress fracture, fracture and ligament damage caused by overtraining. It has been a very tough year, so far purely private and combining it with fierce competition training left its mark. Now I’m back. The injury is not 100% healed but see it as a luxury to be a little tender in the body after a hard day at work.
What do you feel when you step into Lisebergshallen?
– It feels wonderful to have family, friends and fans at the location cheering. Their support has given me more opportunities to peak performance. It is also in my hometown. It is a great comfort to fight at home.
What can the audience expect compared to the past?
– As it looks now, you will not be able to complain about my resistance and I will have to perform at their best to win my fight at The Zone FC.
