Despite their difference in age, both men share a common goal.

‘’This will be the biggest challenge of my career,’’ admits the 23 year-old Skoglund at a press conference today in Stockholm. ‘’Glen is a great boxer and he has my full respect. I may not have as much experience as him, but I’m the younger, hungrier fighter. I have the skill and the will to win on Saturday night. This is the next step up the ladder for me and another step closer to realising my dream of becoming world champion.’’

‘’Age does not matter,’’ said Johnson, the 45 year-old, seventy-five-fight veteran and former IBF World Light Heavyweight Champion. ‘’We both want the same thing – a shot at the world title. Erik is a young guy coming up, while I’ve already been at the top and I’m trying to get back into contention. I will prove on Saturday night that I still have a lot more to offer. I will become world champion again!’’

The ten-round light heavyweight clash is part of an action-packed line up in Copenhagen, which also features Danish boxing brothers Patrick and Micki Nielsen. Patrick Nielsen (22-1, 11 KOs) returns from defeat in a must win fight against Lukasz Wawrzyczek (20-3-2, 3 KOs), while younger brother Micki Nielsen (15-0, 12 KOs) faces former Mikkel Kessler opponent Gusmyr Perdomo (21-4, 14 KOs).
