Aleksi Putkonen (1-2) and Jesse Koivuniemi (1-2) will face each other on the FNF 15 card on November 18. The two Finnish lightweights will battle at a catchweight of 72.6 KG on the Karkkila Fight Night card.
Putkonen turned pro in 2015. The Primus Fight Team fighter was last in the cage at Superior Challenge 14, where he lost by TKO in the first round to Arman Popal.
Koivuniemi won by submission against Marko Tani (3-1) at Seinäjoki Fight Night 3 in the main event in February for his first win in his pro career.
“Koivuniemi is well known about his strong wrestling. Putkonen is well-rounded fighter and he has got good cardio, but in last bouts he has had some problems to start his own game. I believe that finding own rhythm is key for winning the bout for both guys. Both fighters have got a lot of weapons to stop the fight before full time.” says Olli Hartikainen, FNF Matchmaker.
