Swede middleweight Kristian Lexell will face Sam Boo in Karlstad, Sweden this Saturday night on the Vision “Fight Night 1” card. When officials sent the latest fight card on Wednesday, “Lex” was still left off the card without an opponent.
“Yes, unfortunately it doesn’t look like I’m getting a fight. They’re still trying and there’s still a little hope.” Lexell told MMA Viking yesterday, but it looks like an opponent came through in the House of Pain opponent out of England Sam Boo. The tip on the opponent came from Kimura’s Simon Kolle, who was on-hand at the weigh-ins.
