FIGHT! announces next lineup

The Save Mart Center at Fresno State will host the next FIGHT! event on Sunday July 5th. After crowning a middleweight champion at 'Goldrush', all eyes are on the Heavyweights in a co-main event of epic proportions.

Former FURYPRO Heavyweight Champion, the imposing striker Ivan Vyacheslav will make his FIGHT! debut alongside Rodrigo Alvarez, the newest FIGHT! coup. Alvarez boasts an impressive 18-5 record and his dirty boxing may be the key which unlocks Vyacheslav.

Stephen Greer, fresh off of his slumbersome victory over Jamtsangiin Daisetin will face a sterner test by way of Japanese judo-wizard Keijiro Maeda. Although no gold is on the line, expect the winners of these two bouts to clash further down the line.

Jake Morgan also announced that he would be bringing FIGHT! fans a glimpse of the growing female MMA scene in partnership with SPIRIT-FC. Myra Benedict will face Christi Wasilewski in what should be a great fight.

Both women were at the announcement and gave their thoughts, as well as a tense staredown.

Benedict said:
"I lost my last two fights by decision. That doesn't sit well with me. ANY loss doesn't sit well with me. I must bounce back, and this is the perfect time to do it."
Wasilewski said:
"I've been given a very tough opponent for my first fight. But the tougher, the better. I have size, strength, and striking advantages over her. But make no mistake about it, I fully expect this fight between us to be nothing short of a war."
The card also features an explosive clash of aggressive kickboxers as Dutchman Aaldert Daaf takes on the unpredictable Ikaika Boswick. Del Canada will look to put his debut behind him as he tackles Aramis Vasquez and much more besides.
