Kem Ljungquist, Marios Kollias Hit Scales, Ready for Showdown

The main event heavyweight fighters for Saturday’s card at K.B. Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark, hit the scales Friday, with Kem Ljungquist (16-0) weighing in at 240.8 pounds and his opponent, Marios Kollias (11-2-1), weighing in at 232.4 pounds.

Ljungquist is also the co-promoter of the show, which can be viewed live at BriveTV.dk.

Kollias, who hails from Patras, Greece, and fights out of Orebro, Sweden, is promoted by Fight Life Promotion.

The main event is scheduled for 10 rounds, with no title at stake. Ljungquist was initially slated to fight Belgium’s Bilal Laggoune for a WBA super title at super cruiserweight, but Laggoune was stopped in Russia about a month ago, prompting the need for a replacement.

In the co-feature, Ahmad El Ahmad (3-0) and Michael De La Rosa Nielsen (7-4) clash for the vacant Danish featherweight title.

Also of note is Ukrainian former amateur star Denys Pesotskyy (1-0), who is scheduled to face Sweden’s Mohammed Al-Maki, in his professional debut, in a four-round super welterweight bout.
