The show is topped by super middleweight Anders Eggan (4-0) taking on Ukrainian Volodymyr Romanenko (8-8) but the best matchup on the bill is between cruisers Simen Nysaether (7-0) and Swedish champ Samo Jangirov (4-1-1).

In the co-feature Anatoli Muratov (21-2) As for Mohammedi he´s been in with the best and didn´t quite make it but at a level below he is still a force.
