***Thorslund lands WBC World title fight against Ashley on March 10***

***Thorslund lands WBC World title fight against Ashley on March 10***

By

Dina Thorslund (10-0, 6 KOs) has landed a dream WBC Female World Super Bantamweight title fight against former World Champion Alicia Ashley (24-11-1, 4 KOs) on March 10 at the Struer Energi Park in Denmark.
 
The fight will be the first World Championship contest on Danish soil for over 5 years following Mikkel Kessler’s WBA World Super Middleweight title challenge versus Brian Magee on December 8, 2012 at the Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning,.
 
Thorslund will be hoping to become the first Danish World Champion since ‘The Viking Warrior’ won his fifth title with a third-round TKO victory over Magee, and join Anita Christensen as only the second ever female World title holder. 
 
“I’m very excited for my first World title fight,” said the 24 year-old Thorslund. “My opponent Alicia Ashley is a very experienced boxer so I have a lot of respect for her and I’m expecting a really tough fight.
 
“It is not a fight where victory is certain before the bell rings, and it is not a fight I can be 100% certain of winning, but it is a fight where I’m certain that I will give my all and be 110% ready to do my best, which hopefully will be enough.
 
“I’m really happy this fight is happening in Struer. I want to give something back to the city that has supported me. I will train harder than ever to make sure I’m in the best possible shape. This is an important fight for me, and the first step on the way to collecting all the belts!”
 
Born in Jamaica but based in New York, Ashley is a former two-time WBC World Champion, who fights out of Brooklyn’s famous Gleason’s Gym. Nicknamed ‘Slick’, Ashley is a wily veteran who plans to use her experience to overcome Thorslund and reclaim the WBC’s coveted green and gold strap.
 
“I’m really excited to go to Denmark to fight for the title. I've fought on the road for most of my career and believe that I will have a fair decision,” said Ashley.
 
“I think that Dina will be formidable opponent. From the videos I've seen of her, it shows that she is a well-rounded fighter, and I believe that this will be an entertaining fight.
 
“I think the key to my victory is my experience and the fact that I've seen every style of fighting, and I can adjust to any and every situation. I've evolved as a fighter and have competed at the top level for a number of years and this fight will be no different.”
 
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: “We’re delighted to be bringing this World title contest to Denmark. Dina will have home advantage and the chance to write her name in the record books by joining an elite group of Danish World Champions.  She faces a tough, experienced opponent but with the support of her home crowd in Struer we believe she is ready to win her first World title.”
 
With current champion Fatuma Zarika injured, Thorslund and Ashley will contest the ‘interim’ WBC title. Upon her return, Zarika will fight the winner of Thorslund and Ashley to determine the WBC’s ‘undisputed’ 122lbs champion.
 
Tickets for the WBC Female World Super Bantamweight Championship contest between Dina Thorslund and Alicia Ashley will go on sale on Monday at 09.00 (CET) and will be available online via www.ticketmaster.dk.
