The death gate from the world's brightest lights! Eva Wahlström release emotional description of his own career - no one should have to say
Saturday night in New York Katie Taylor lost Eva Wahlström wrote on Wednesday, the long and emotional description of what boxing means to him.


Wahlstrom start of the text since 2012, when he had a hospital for the treatment of serious pulmonary embolism. Wahlstrom was at that time in the hospital for two weeks, and death was very near.

blood clots were a total of four: one in both lungs, one kidney and one leg.

going pro at that stage was the back nine of the match amount, and most recent, in march 2012, its match wahlstrom's waist was lifted to the upper feather series EM-tittelivyö.

Hopes and expectations, however, was much more.

I Thought that a boxing career would be over. I regretted in particular that you would face as a professional all the tougher opponents. I'm a fighter so I want fight, I just don't have to balance my clean, Wahlstrom describes instagram at the fair six years ago his feelings.

Next match we had to wait always until December 2013 but most importantly, it came. And since then it has become 14 more matches, two to four annually.

This year the match amount was nearly hit together, when Kazakh Firuza Sharipova to cancel already agreed to the match no less than three times. The April match Melissa St. George against that was its own kind of farce, when Wahlstrom couldn't win his match in the end to nothing.

it seemed that this would be athletic in the bad year. I had done a lot of work but received only one match, Wahlstrom writes.

Then everything changed. Wahlstörm heard as soon as the last Sharipova-after the cancellation that there might be something really great: match for female boxing's brightest super star Katie Taylor .

Wahlstrom was faced taylor's eight-time amateur in the ring and lost to this every time. Their own difficulties to the match would also that it would be taylor's weight class, which is one section Wahlströmiä above.

Wahlstrom seek advice from the ex-coach of mate Risto Meroselta , with whom he collaborated for nearly 10 years.

I Asked him for an opinion. He said that I would lose. I replied I know that, but I'd still like to try, Wahlstrom writes.

– a Three-week lead-in time to go to a new weight class with a new coach. It was a risk, but I think no one should say, that I should not have to accept the match. I know exactly what I was doing when I accepted it.

Wahlströmillä not been IBF and WBA federations championship in the end any chance to olympic champion Taylor. The irish took Madison Square Garden - one of the world's legendary sports sanctuary - name all the items.

the Pin despite Wahlström was able, however, to smile after the match. Fully expected result was easy to accept - especially when Wahlstrom believes in taking his as well as he could.

– I'd Do it again. In my mind there is no "what if" idea, because I couldn't have done any better. Boxing well, but Katie was phenomenal. He was better than ever, and I don't see any lightweight can beat him.

– And what do I do next? I'm still in the upper featherweight champion of the world. Match Sharipova against was moved to march, but I don't think they are serious. I've gotten a few offers, but I have no idea what to do next. Except that christmas I spent with my family.
