Kjäll turned pro in 1994, moved to Florida,[1] and had limited success. Although he retired in 2002 with a career record with 23-1-0 with 18 KO's and fought frequently in the US, his career never built up momentum for a title shot. His lone defeat was a 1st-round TKO to future contender Juan Carlos Candelo.
