Swedish Muay Thai fighter Linus Bylander is a highly decorated athlete and a bright shining star on the Scandinavian fight scene.

At the upcoming Muay Thai For Life: Unite Against Cancer on October 28, he will take on the tough Kim Falk in a super lightweight bout.

“Everybody knows that Kim is a very tough fighter, but I’m a very tough fighter too, so it will be a great fight. That I’m sure of,” Bylander said.

“He has hard punches and elbows, but I never even took a count in my entire career so I’m not worried at all. I will avoid his strikes as much as possible, but even if I get caught I’m not worried because I’ve got a good chin.”

Linus Bylander is a three-time Swedish champ

The three time Swedish Muay Thai Champion, and 2022 IFMA Nordic Champion, is confident in his skills as he will enter the ring at the Partiella Arena on Saturday.

“He never faced anyone like me before. I’m a tall, creative, southpaw, technical, all around and strong. I have cardio for rounds and rounds. I hope he’s ready,” Bylander said.
