Ville Piispanen, 10-0-1, also at jr welter, face Dominican Christian Frias, who fights out of the Netherlands, in a scheduled eight-rounder.
Swedish female welter Anna Ingman is also on the bill but will of course have to get through her fight on Thursday in Gothenburg to make it happen.
P 3 Boxing´s big star, former EBU middle champ Amin Asikainen is not fighting April 18. "Idi" Amin and manager Pekka Maeki have of course a close eye on how the middleweight division develops during April with a special interest in the Sebastian Sylvester vs Javier Castillejo bout April 12, a fight that is both a final WBA eliminator and a EBU title defence by Sylvester.
