Timra-boxer Rocco Wadell (4-0, 2 KOs) must face a new challenge on April 21. The 24 year-old will now meet Hungary’s Mark Krammerstodter (3-2-1, 1 KO) following the withdrawal of his scheduled opponent Antonio Petrov.
Wadell fights on the undercard of the Swedish super fight between heavyweight rivals Otto Wallin and Adrian Granat at the Gärdehov in Sundsvall, and despite the late change of opponent, ‘The Rock’ says it will not affect his focus.
“Things like this happen in boxing. It’s not unusual for an opponent to pull out at short notice. It's no going to affect my performnace in the ring. That’s one of the reasons why I always put the main focus on myself and not who I’m going to meet,” said Wadell, who insists he is in top condition for his four-round super middleweight clash.
“My training the last months has been going better and better. I’ve never been in such good shape and without injuries. I’m ready to put on a great show for the fans!”
