The Euro Boxing Scene: Upcoming Bouts and Highlights


As boxing enthusiasts look ahead, several fighters from Europe are setting their sights on significant events in the coming months. From Icelandic heavyweights to the contest for the IBF Intercontinental title, there’s much to unpack. Let’s delve into some of the major updates from the Euro boxing scene.

Gunnar Kolbeinn Kristinsson’s Return

Iceland’s powerhouse in boxing, Gunnar Kolbeinn Kristinsson, remains undefeated with a 13-0 record. He’s set to showcase his skills this Saturday in Vienna, Austria. However, details regarding his opponent remain under wraps.

Quick Facts about Gunnar

  • Promotion Affiliation: Salita Promotions (since 2020)

Though he’s aligned with Salita Promotions, it’s interesting to note that Gunnar has only stepped into the ring for two fights under their banner. Given his impeccable track record and training stints with boxing legends, expectations are soaring for his upcoming match.
