Croatia’s best heavyweight boxer Filip Hrgovic won’t have a long lay-off after his most recent win.
The Balkan fighter KO’d Greece’s Alexandre Kartozia on September 26 in Denmark in what would forever be remembered as one of the ugliest mismatches in his pro career.
However, the 28-year-old Croatian will face Rydell Booker this November 7th in Florida, US. Hrgovic himself announced the news on his social media.

Booker,39, hasn’t fought since last November when Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev defeated him via UD.
Filip is on the verge of becoming a serious heavyweight contender for a world title, but in order for him to take that next step, he’ll have to face bigger names than Kartozia and Rydell.
