Dennis Ceylan (born 3 March 1989, Høje Tåstrup, Denmark) is a Danish professional boxer. He is the current EBU European featherweight champion.

As an amateur he competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics as a bantamweight.[1]

In September 2012, Ceylan turned professional with Sauerland fighting at super featherweight. He currently has a record of 18-0-2 with 8 knockout wins.[2]

EBU title fights[edit]

In October 2016, he won the EBU featherweight title by defeating, the reigning British featherweight champion, Ryan Walsh by split decision.[3]

It was then announced that the first defense of his title would be against Isaac Lowe, the reigning Commonwealth champion.[4] The fight was set for March 2017, but was stopped prematurely, after there was an accidental clash of heads in the fourth round, leaving Ceylan unable to continue. The fight was therefore declared a technical draw, and Ceylan retained his title.[5]
