Pro Box Finland headed by Juho Tolppola and Richard Schaefer´s Probellum join forces for a show on February 5 in Vantaa, Finland. This marks Probellum's debut in Finland.

Topping the bill is a cruiserweight contest scheduled for eight rounds between Samuli Karkkainen (14-1) and Swedish champ Samo Jangirov (7-2-1). They fought before with the Finn winning but it was after a tough fight and tough is the first word that comes to mind when it comes to Jangirov so this is a solid matchup put together by matchmaker Markus Lammi.


The oft-postponed fight for the vacant EBU lightweight title between Edis Tatli and Gianluca Ceglia will not be rescheduled this time but goes back to purse bids.

The EBU has set January 5 as the deadline. 

Tatli vs Ceglia was set for December 11 in Helsinki but was - again and again one must add - canceled due to corona related restrictions.


WBA Gold heavyweight champion Robert Helenius is back home and he's, as always, in hard training at his gym in Mariehamn. 

The second win over Adam Kownacki was billed by the WBA as an eliminator and the Polish boxer was for sure eliminated - but where it leaves Helenius is a good question. 

However, while nothing is set Team Nordic Nightmare is hopeful of news of something big in the near future.
