4x3: Pezhman Seifkhani, 104,4, Eskilstuna, Swe TKO 1 (1.40) Olegs Lopajevs, 92,0, Riga, Lat
Seifkhani - making his prodebut - swept aside Lopajevs, who covered up the best he could but still went down three times. Lopajevs looked soft and unwilling while Seifkhani had trained hard for this after many years out of boxing.
4x3: Johnny Iwersen, 108,5, Sandviken, Swe TKO 1 (1.01) Romans Moldavcuks, 93,7, Riga, Lat
Moldavcuks was inept and as he fell down three times even his cornerman burst out in a los coaugh. It was stopped at 1.01. Iwersen, 32, made his comeback in boxing and made his prodebut: it doesn´t get much any easier than this.
4x3: Victor Fabretto, 81,7, Västerås, Swe W4-U Andrejs Pokumeiko, 80,5, Riga, Lat
38-37 twice and 39-37. Fabretto kept coming but Pokumeiko kept out of trouble and floored Fabretto in the third as Victor attacked too hard and tired. In the last Pokumeiko was a spent force and smiled broadly when the final bell came.
4x3: Marcus Alberts, 90,1, Stockholm, Swe KO 1 (2.53) Ostaps Basins, 90,8, Riga, Lat
Alberts did land with a decent left hook and followed up on it but Basins overplayed it a bit - he was however ten and out.
4x3: Mohammed Saleh, Västerås, Swe vs Aleksanders Skreivers, Jurmala, Lat
Fight off after Saleh fell ill.
