Valhalla Combat Sports Gym is promoting a boxing card which features Stephen Watt taking on Cheyene Ziegler. Damion Hill and heavyweight MMA fighter Brad Scholten are also on the card. There will be 8 fights in all.
August 16 brings boxing back to Hinckley, Featured will be Jason Litzau taking on Robert Osiobe, Robert has spoiled some home fighters days! Robert Brant takes on Harley Kilfian who is going back to a better weight after bulking up to fight Al Sands and as expected going from 165 to 193 was too much. Brant is moving from the 150 to 168 for the catch-weight. Very interesting in our opinion. Bravo should be able to outbox Kilifian, and has spent plenty of time at the high 160′s. Dustin Mason and Brad Patraw is years in the making, looking forward to that one. Nice work by matchmaker, Cory Rapacsz, for getting it done. Green should be able to walk through Stacy Frazier who has lost 10 of his 11 last fights, most by early stoppage. All in, could be a fun little show.
September 6 brings another Jungle Boy Boxing show. Its a pro am with three pro fights, two debuts and Al Sands… After Sands called out John Moxey, who was already under contract to fight on a different show, he and his manager barged into Joe Lorenzi’s gym while Joe was teaching a kids class and offered him a contract. Guess they don’t believe in going through promoters and managers. Joe had already given his word to fight Sept 13. But the bright side. TJ Gibson said he would let Sands try and redeem himself from his TKO loss at the hands of Gibson (1,4) on September 6. Also, both Moxey and Lorenzi have said they would love to face Sands after their obligations and are free in October. Jungle has Black Bear Casino date mid October. Also, don’t forget Phil Williams has said he’d take on Sands any time.
T-Rex has pushed Sept 13 due to too many fights and monster weekend of boxing, never easy decision, but probably a wise one with a very full September.
September 13, T-Rex Promotions, featuring Andy “Kaos” Kolle, Winston Anderson, Joe Lorenzi, and possibly Gary “Stone Cold” Eyer. More details as they come. The Promoter, RJ “T-Rex” Laase is in the middle of negotiates for a fight of his own.
September 21, Seconds Out Promotions, The return of “Golden” Caleb Truax after his incredible ESPN appearance taking out Don George with relative ease. Also featured Jeremy McLaurin vs Tony Lee two. They last fought to a draw and the 135 belt stayed vacant, don’t expect that this time. Rumors have some more very exciting fights on tap for this card.
This past Friday Seconds Out Promotions put on some nice competitive fights. 2 draws! Unfortunately I was on vacation and did not catch the action live. But from reading and seeing some video, Phil “The Drill” Williams can be in any fight if he sets his mind to it. Corey Rodriguez was in another war. What a warrior. Joey Abell took out Maurenzo Smith in 2, Aaron Green went a full 6 for a UD win, winning every round.

Below is video of the Corey Rodriguez fight.
Dustin Mason vs Brad Patraw has been added to the card. Nice fight! Card as it stands today on boxrec. Also Harley Kilfian vs Rob Brant at middleweight. Very interesting match-up.. Brant giving up some weight and Harley coming back to middle after fighting Al Sands at Cruiser. I believe Sands was 198 for that fight. I have to say, very intriguing.

July 26 brings us another fun card from Seconds Out Promotions. Some very interesting fights with what should be an exciting Main Event… Full card as it stands.
The main event features local favorite Phil “The Drill” Williams (12,5,1) vs Derrick Findley (20,10)… Findley was Caleb Truax’s chief sparring partner when he got ready for his ESPN George fight and has nothing but good things to say about him. One could say, aside from the Taylor fight Williams had given Truax the most trouble in the ring. This has the makings of a good one…
Corey Rodriguez (7,3,2) vs Kenn Glenn (3,0) has a chance of being fight of the night. Rodriguez always brings it and has a vast boxing experience edge, but Glenn has gotten better with each fight and win. And I’m sure he’d like to keep that 0! Another action packed scrap.
The return of Joey “Minnesota Ice” Abell….
There are some other nice match-ups we will go into more as date approaches….
We expected easy going for Al Sands, but this may take the cake.
