Finn Teemu Packalen now has a fight, after his original opponent Saul Rogers pulled out. The undefeated Packalen with 6 wins, will face Daguir Imavov who also has an impressive record of 9 wins and 1 loss. Fight Night Finland (FNF) 9 card is now set for the April 25th show in Turku, Finland at the Kupittaan Urheiluhalli.
Imavov has fought pro for about two years and has an impressive record. The Frenchman has been in Finland two times and last time he KO’d experienced JP Vainikainen in first round. Imavov changes stance while stand up fighting and he hits accurately. Packalen needs to be awake all time and I believe that safest way to play this game is to use his awesome “MMA jujutsu”. I think that most of top level European guys are in trouble in ground game with Packalen. Teemu has got excellent jujutsu and he combines powerful striking with that. – Matchmaker Olli Hartikainen
Packalen trains out of FinnFighters Gym and has stopped all of his opponents in his professional career.
