Frida Wallberg was knocked out in the eighth round of her match with Australian Diana Prazak, defending her lightweight WIBF world title in Stockholm on Friday night. She was taken to Karolinska hospital in Solna, north Stockholm.
Olof Johansson from the boxing association says to SVT Sport that the punches Wallenberg took should not have knocked her out. The association is to hold an investigation into whether there was any reason for Wallenberg's injury. "If anything happened during training that wasn't reported. But that's speculation on my part," says Johansson.
He has also said that Frida Wallberg's career has effectively been ended by this injury. The 30-year old Swede had fought 11 professional bouts previously.
