Finland’s hottest prospect Musa Amagov headlines the Karkkila Fight Night show on the 14th of April in Karkkila, Finland. In the main event the Chechen striker meets Knight of Plunge gyms Arnold Vanyan who tries to pay back for his teammates Sergei Kabalinov and Dainius Almokas who both got destroyed by the talented Amagov.
Another interesting Finnish up-n-comer on the card is GB Gym’s wrestling powerhouse Jussi Halonen. The heavy handed Halonen is a member of the Finnish national wrestling team which means he brings excellent wrestling and imposing physical attributes to the octagon. At the Cage 16 in October of 2011 Halonen broke his hand but surgery went well, the hand is healed up and it’s time to get back to action. Halonen is matched up with Knight of Plunge grappler Pavel Berioza who fights for the first time in Finland.
Swedish amateur Shootfighting champion Michel Ersoy and Pancrase Gym striker Martin Fouda are pitted against GB Gym’s Jarmo Paunonen and Mika Hämäläinen who both will make their professional eebut.
