Bakočević found out about his new opponent from social networks
Instead of Lamberd Akhiadov, Montenegrin Vaso Bakočević is to fight Niko Puhakka from Finland June 20 at PLMMA. As he posted on his Facebook profile, he found out about the change of his opponent when a new poster appeared on the social networks.
“I just found out I am to fight Niko Puhakka June 20 in Poland instead of Lamberd Akhiadov. Nobody told me anything, I just saw the poster, but no problem… Why not? So, June 20 I am to fight a Finnish veteran with 44 matches (28-16-0)”, wrote Vaso.
In Croatia Puhakka is known for his match with Ivica Trušček in which he knocked out the latter in the first round. The experienced Finnish fighter has been fighting professionally since 2002.
