JUKKA
Jukka Saarinen defended the European Super Heavyweight Full Contact title on Saturday 14th March in Helsinki. Saarinen was clearly ahead on points after full 10 rounds and would have won a Unanimous Decision, but his opponent Michael Dinner, the German Champion, had to be disqualified after the final stanza due to the third minus point for not kicking enough. The event gathered a record crowd in Finland for a kickboxing event, with attendance of more than 1800 spectators. The event is broadcasted in The Finnish Sport Television, a television channel with free national coverage in Finland.
