Weighing in at around 205 lb (93 kg; 14.6 st), Narkun is considered small by North American standards for light heavyweights. He has, however, earned respect for his tactical and defensive capabilities. Gegard "Dreamcatcher" Mousasi, a regular training partner of Narkun, has said of Narkun: "Tactically and technically he has reached a very high level". Mousasi has also stated his belief that Narkun "is the future light heavyweight champion".
Narkun's path to the M-1 Global Western European Light Heavyweight Championship was remarkably easy. He defeated Olutobi Ayodeji "Deji" Kalejaiye with a rear naked choke inside a minute, and defeated Timo Karttunen with an armbar in even quicker time. His championship bout against David Tkeshelashvili was slightly longer, but Narkun was still victorious with a rear naked choke inside of two minutes.
In the upcoming championship bout between Narkun and Vasilevsky, the outcome may well come down to experience. With a 10–1 win-loss record, Vasilevsky has considerably more fight experience than Narkun, and unlike Narkun has fought in bouts that went beyond the first round. Vasilevsky's split decision victory over Sergey Guzev was hard fought and his 2010 bouts have included three round victories over Xavier "Professor X" Foupa-Pokam and Shamil Tinagadjiev.
At the weigh-ins for M-1 Challenge XXVIII in Russia, for his fight against Saparbek Safarov, both fighters ended up slapping each other. At first it appeared to be a joke, but when Safarov threw a right hook at Narkun, M-1 officials intervened. Safarov was disqualified from the event.
