Croatia’s Filip Hrgovc (10-0) will face a new opponent this upcoming Saturday night.
The Balkan heavyweight as scheduled to fight Ondrej Pala at the Struer Energi Park in Denmark, but instead he will square up against Greece’s Alexandre Kartozia (8-1-1).
Following a short notice withdrawal from Pala and with no time to spare, Team Sauerland confirmed that Kartozia has accepted the fight and will arrive in Denmark shortly.
Hrgović vs Kartozia is as a co-feature to local hero Dina Thorslund (14-0, 6 KOs) in Struer as she defends her WBO Female World Super Bantamweight Championship against Serbian challenger Nina Radovanovic (14-3, 3 KOs).
Hrgovic hasn’t fought since last December when he defeated Eric Molina via KO in the third round.
