(AUGUST 4)  Klara Svensson (15-1, 5 KOs) gets her second shot at world glory on September 19 when she challenges Marisa Gabriela Nunez (7-5-2) for the IBF Female World Light Welterweight title at the Rosvalla Stora Ishallen at the Nyköpings Arenor in Nyköping, Sweden.

The Malmo-boxer fell short in her attempt to dethrone WBC queen Erica Anabella Farias in May, but having gained valuable experience, Svensson returns with renewed vigour confident of toppling Nunez and claiming boxing’s ultimate prize.

Svensson’s World title challenge will provide chief support for Erik Skoglund’s IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Championship defence against Oleksandr Cherviak in what promises to be the biggest night for Swedish boxing since 1968.

‘’I’m really excited to get this opportunity,’’ said Svensson. ‘’I’m hungrier and more determined than ever. I’m coming back with more experience and even more self-belief. I know I’m capable of beating Nunez, and on September 19, I will become World Champion!

‘’The fight against Farias was a great learning experience for me. I’ve taken a lot of positives from that night. The decision didn’t go my way but boxing-wise I felt I had her under control. I just made one mistake, dropping my hands in the fifth-round, and that cost me the fight.

‘’With a loss, a lot depends on how you lose, and I can take pride in my performance. I gave it my all and I think people saw that. Everyone has been really positive and I’m thankful for their support. I feel like people want me to succeed and that’s gives me even more motivation to win on September 19.

‘’Nunez is another tough Argentinian – she actually reminds me a little of Farias. I’ve watched her fights and I know her style. She’s short, compact and comes to fight. I also know she’s not too fast on her feet so if I box smart, use my speed and trust in my boxing ability I’m confident I can beat her.

‘’It would mean everything to me to become World Champion and to do it at home in Sweden would make it extra special. I’ve not fought in Sweden since I was an amateur and now I’m back challenging for a World title - it’s a dream scenario!’’

‘’There is no one more deserving of a second chance than Klara,’’ said promoter Nisse Sauerland. ‘’She showed a champion’s heart against Farias, and if it wasn’t for the knock down, I believe we would already be looking at a World Champion. Now she has a chance to right that wrong, and on September 19, I expect Klara to take her place at the top of the female light welterweight division.’’

Tickets for 'Making History' featuring the IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight title fight between Erik Skoglund and Oleksandr Cherviak, and Klara Svensson's IBF Female World Light Welterweight title challenge against Marisa Gabriela Nunez are on sale now and available via biljettforum.se.
