Aleksi Mäntykivi (11-4) has been announced as an upcoming fighter on April 28. The event, Cage Warriors 93, will go down at the Lisebergshallen in Gothenburg and will be the promotions first visit to Sweden.
The Finn won in impressive fashion on M-1 Challenge 86 card in November. The Hardknocks Helsinki fighter faced a tough Bashir Gagiev (3-3) in Ingushetia, Russia and was looking good early and finished a second round guillotine that put the fighter to sleep. It will be the lightweight’s Cage Warriors debut.
Mäntykivi had a five fight win streak from 2014 to 2015, and his most recent outing in prior to his last M-1 bout won by a TKO win over the Cage Warriors star Soren Bak, who is also on the card.
“Some of the most exciting guys ever to fight for Cage Warriors have come from Scandinavia,” Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan said. “We’re giving them a platform to put on an incredible show for Scandi fight fans alongside Viaplay, one of the most respected broadcasters in the region. Scandinavian fans are world famous for the amazing atmosphere they create. April 28th is going to be incredible.”
