Rashid ‘The Dream’ Kassem (6-0, 3 KOs) can improve to 7-0 when he takes on Oszkar Fiko (11-8, 9 KOs) on February 7 at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn.

The 23 year-old lightweight impressed in his last outing, dominating Kakhaber Avetisian over six-rounds to claim a unanimous points victory. The Danish talent will now be looking to build on this success in Frederikshavn when he takes on the 21 year-old Romanian, Fiko.

Kassem is one of five Danish boxers in action. Cruiserweight star Micki Nielsen (16-0, 12 KOs) tops the bill. The Albertslund-boxer can claim his first major title when he challenges Brazilian knockout-artist Julio Cesar Do Santos (27-3, 24 KOs) for the WBC International crown.

Horsens-boxer Kim Poulsen (26-1, 7 KOs) can avenge countryman Kasper Bruun’s defeat when he meets Swedish star Anthony Yigit (11-0-1. 4 KOs). Dennis Ceylan (12-0-1, 6 KOs) travels from Aarhus, to meet Spanish rival Cristian Montilla (6-3-1, 3 KOs), in a repeat of their unresolved August encounter. Copenhagen’s Abdul Khattab (9-0, 3 KOs) steps up in class to face ‘The Fish’ Alexey Ribchev (19-11-1, 6 KOs).
