Oops, it happened again.  Niko Myllynen (5-3) gets another opponent as Georgian Gabriel Marichev (7-5) did not get the visa needed to travel to Finland. So, Fight Night Finland (FNF) 11 has found Russian Vladimir Karasiov (7-9) to step in to face Myllynen for the co-main of the Karkkila card on November 14th.


Karasiov started out with 6 wins and 2 losses, but has not lost 7 of 8 bouts. In the last run of losses, he lost to notable Nordic fighters Sirwan Kakai, Tom Niinimaki, and Mika Hamalainen.

The 26 year old Finn has won his last 5 of 6 bouts, only losing to Kennet Mattsson in April at FNF – Turku.
