Wolf Fight Night amateur lightweight champion William Swärd is set for his first title defense.

Swärd represents Växjö Titans and rides a four-fight winning streak in the local Swedish promotion WFP. Even more impressive is that he finished all his opponents in the second round.

In his last two outings the Växjö fighter finished George Youssef and Joel Jensen.

Seasoned wrestler Hajijan is a rising amateur star with a Swedish title to his name. He also represented the Swedish National Team. In his last appearance in the promotion, he defeated Osman Vacoev via decision at WFP 3.
