Thompson to perform live as Hrgović enters the ring at Arena Zagreb
Croatia’s biggest rock act Thompson headed by star singer Marko Perković will perform live as Filip Hrgović enters the ring for his WBC International Heavyweight Championship fight on September 8 at the Arena Zagreb.
Hrgović, the rising star of the heavyweight division, faces his toughest test against American Amir Mansour in a battle for his first major title. Having previously walked to the ring to ‘Geni Kameni’, Hrgović and the fans inside the Arena Zagreb can now look forward to Thompson performing their hit song live.
“It will be a great honour to have Thompson perform Geni Kameni while I make my way to the ring,” says Hrgović. “It will give me even more motivation to defeat Mansour and claim the WBC International title for Croatia.”
“We’re delighted to confirm that Thompson will be performing as part of our massive fight night at the Arena Zagreb on September 8,” said Nisse Sauerland, promoter for Team Sauerland. “They will provide a electric atmosphere for Filip Hrgović as he prepares to face Amir Mansour for the WBC International title.”Loading...
“It will be a special moment for the Croatian people when Thompson warms up the crowd for our heavyweight gladiator Filip Hrgović,” says Zeljko Karajica, CEO of 7Sports, the sports unit of the ProSiebenSat.1 Group and Managing Director of the operating event agency MMP Event GmbH. “We expect a performance as exciting outside the ring as we will later see from Filip inside it.”
