(MAY 4) Klara Svensson (15-1, 5 KOs) remains positive about her future despite losing to the WBC Female World Light Welterweight Champion Erica Anabella Farias (22-1, 10 KOs) in Copenhagen last night.

In her first world championship challenge, ‘The Swedish Princess’ came up short on the judges’ scorecards (96-94, 96-93 and 98-92) after bravely fighting back from a fifth-round knockdown.

Reflecting on the fight, Svensson has identified this knockdown as the pivotal moment.

‘’I made a mistake and that cost me the fight,’’ said Svensson. ‘’Of course, we don’t know what would have happened if I hadn’t been caught with that shot but at that point I felt I was in control of the fight. But that’s boxing, anything can happen and it only takes one punch!

‘’I’m not taking anything away from Farias. She is a great champion and a worthy winner, but I still feel that was a fight I could have won. It just wasn’t my night!’’

However, the loss has done little to weaken the Swede’s resolve. The 27 year-old is already looking to the future and eyeing other possible world title challenges.

‘’I still have a lot more to give and show, and I hope to do that in future but right now I’m just going to have a break, relax and refocus,’’ said the Malmo-boxer. ‘’After the summer, I will be back better than ever. I know I have what it takes, I couldn’t show it properly yesterday, but my time will come.

‘’I’d love a rematch with Farias but if that doesn’t happen there are a lot of great Argentinian girls at the top. I want to work my way back into position and challenge for a world title again.’’

Despite the result, Svensson can take pride in her performance. The fan-favourite was cheered in and out of the ring on Saturday night.

‘’I would like to thank the Swedish fans for their support,’’ said Svensson. ‘’The reception I have received from the public and media in the build up to this fight has been amazing. Although the result didn’t go my way, I’m thankful I got the opportunity to speak about professional boxing and hopefully help the sport gain more mainstream acceptance in Sweden.’’
