Tim-Robin Lihaug (15-2, 8 KOs) returns to the ring on December 3 when he travels to the Arena Armeec in Sofia to face Gergo Horvath (9-2-1, 5 KOs).

The Norwegian boxer will be fighting on the undercard of Kubrat Pulev’s long awaited homecoming fight with Samuel Peter for the WBA Intercontinental Heavyweight title.

It will be Lihaug’s first fight back since meeting two-weight World Champion Arthur Abraham in July, an experience he believes will stand him in good stead for the future.

‘’For me, the Abraham fight was proof I belong at the highest level,’’ he said. ‘’I learnt a lot from that fight and when I’m in the same situation again, I know I will win.’’

The 24 year-old will now be campaigning at light heavyweight, having decided to move up in weight following the Abraham fight.

‘’Recently, I’ve really struggled to make super middleweight, especially against Abraham,’’ he reveals. ‘’At light heavyweight, I feel much stronger. I’m hitting harder, I’m more explosive and it just suits me better.’’

Lihaug can now look forward to showcasing his skills in front of 15,000 fans in the Bulgarian capital, as he looks to get back to winning ways against the Hungarian Horvath.

‘’It’s amazing to get the chance to fight in front of such a big audience,’’ he says. ‘’I’m looking forward to showing everybody what I can do. My opponent has a decent record, but I’m fit, I’m sharp, and I’ll be ready for whatever he has to offer.’’
