Rising heavyweight prospect Filip Hrgovic will be taking a stiff test, when he steps in the ring against Rydell Booker on Saturday, 17th of November at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida, live on DAZN and RTL in Croatia, with a title shot looms for the winner in 2021.

Booker, might be less popular name in the heavyweight division at the moment but spent 12 full rounds against Kubrat Pulev, who is presently preparing unified Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua.

Hrgovic, undefeated in eleven fights with nine knockouts believes Booker won’t see the final bell as he hits harder than Pulev and promises to continue his winning streak in 2020.

“He will not hear the final bell” said the Croatian, “I want to get this job done early, and I believe I can do that. I hit harder than Kubrat Pulev, I move faster than him. I believe Rydell had some successes against Pulev, against me he’ll have none.”

“I have sparred with him before, but this won’t be like sparring. The heavyweight division is very exciting right now, with a lot of big names – I am here to come out on top of those names.”

Hrgovic has racked up some notable victories which include Knockout victories over top contenders Eric Molina and Alexandre Kartozia, earning a knockout of the year contender in the later. He is presently dubbed the future if the heavyweight division by WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Hrgovic is promoted by Promoter Nisse Sauerland, who believes that the fight with Booker will just be another of his knockout victories and that soon, the world of boxing will witness him giving problems to the top Heavyweights.

According Sauerland, Hrgovic has power but not just power but also “quick on his feet” with a size advantage and dangerous, having no one capable of stopping him in his charge to the top of the exciting Heavyweight division.

“It’s the heavyweight division, the most exciting, most discussed, most powerful division of them all, and Filip Hrgovic is making a charge to the top of it.

It isn’t just his power, but the way he can adapt, he’s big, tall and strong but he’s also quick and light on his feet. He’s quick on his feet, very dangerous and has more heart than anyone in the division.

It’s only a matter of time before we see him causing real problems for the biggest guys out there on the world scene.”
