Probellum Also Signs Dina Thorslund
The undefeated Thorslund (17-0,7 KOs) arrives with a proven pedigree at the highest level. Thorslund recently retained the WBO bantamweight title, which she initially won in June, courtesy of an impressive seventh-round stoppage of Zulina Munoz.
She has also held the WBO super-bantamweight title since defeating Jessica Arreguín in 2018.
Thorslund made her professional debut in 2015, securing victory via a first-round TKO against Petra Podráská, and since then she is yet to experience defeat.
