David Jacobsson headlined own event in October

In his last fight, the busy Swede submitted Bulgarian Veselin Dimitrov in a welterweight bout at Wolf Fight Promotion 4 in October.

“Fat Boy Slim”, who headlined the card, was also arranging and promoting the whole show.

“It was intense. I had to push in as much work as possible between the training. I trained in the mornings, tried to work before and after. Trained in the afternoons – it was a goddamn puzzle. A challenge to say the least,” Jacobsson told Frontkick  after the fight.

“I won the fight, even though it wasn’t the best performance. But I’m proud that I didn’t let the stress break me.”

Jacobsson has a professional record of 11-3 and is currently riding a three-fight winning streak.
