Norwegian fighter Emil Meek’s original opponent Åke Bergvall unfortunately sustained a injury during training and that fight could not happen. Now Superior Challenge have found a new opponent in the Swede Per Franklin. This will be a rematch from late 2011, where the “Hulk” won a decision victory against Franklin in a amateur bout. The Hulk tells

“I’m really happy to fight Per Again! He’s a really nice guy, he comes to fight, our last fight was REALLY good – and we both has grown as fighters, this will be a explosive fight from the beginning! “

This is what Superior Challenge VD Babak Aghavali had to say about the announcement:

“It’s always unfortunate when one of our athletes gets hurt, but Åke will be fully recovered soon. Luckily his teammate Per was quick to accept the role as Emil’s new opponent. Franklin is a tough fighter and a very interesting opponent for Emil, so I’m really looking forward to experience Gothenburg’s Ironfists to face the Norwegian invasion.”
