This year, Boxing Day traditionally takes place on December 26 in the Kursaal in Bern. This year, Angelo Pena (28) will provide the highlight of the event.
Pena, born in Spain and raised in Bern, is fighting for the International Boxing Organization (IBO) “Continental” title in the super featherweight category (up to 59 kg). Thanks to his sporting achievements, the professional boxer (fight record 7-0) was able to qualify for the title fight.
Opponent still unknown
“I am hungry and want to win this wonderful title, also for my fans and all of Bern,” Pena said in a statement. For him it is the biggest fight of his life so far; he has never fought for an IBO title before.
Which opponent the Swiss will face in the ring is still determined by the world federation; the fight will last 10 rounds.
More Swiss in the ring
In addition to the main fight in Pena, Boxing Day has more highlights to offer. Chris “The Ruthless” Mouafo (6-1-0) from Biel, Alfred Kqira from Zurich (9-1-0) and the reigning EBU European champion Gabriela Timar (9-1-0) will also be present at the ring stand .
This year the boxing spectacle can be seen live on Blick TV on December 26. (bjl)
