Verbal barbs have begone to be slung by Caleb Truax (20,1,1) and Matt Vanda (44,14) as their showdown approaches… They fight January 19 at the Minneapolis Convention Center at 165 pounds…
Things seemed to start heating up when Truax said in a video podcast that he expects to to finish off Matt Vanda before the 8th round of their fight, even saying he’d be disappointed if he didn’t finish off Vanda before the final bell.
Those comments may have spurned on Vanda’s FB post….
Matt Vanda… ” I gotta spar 12 rounds today. I’m kicking your mother$%#^& ass on the 19th. You know who you are. You’re &%$#@ delusional thinking your gonna beat me…”
Former NFL player and Viking, Ray Edwards has been added to an already stacked January 25 card… Andy “Kaos” Kolle (25,3) and Cerresso Fort (14,0,1) have been working their butts off through this past holiday season and continue to. Fort is in Vegas getting top notch sparring and working Mayweather Sr., in his prep for his toughest test to date.. Kaos Kolle and coach Jason Hendrickson have been putting the miles in traveling all over MN and ND getting work done! Aaron Green and RJ Laase are fighting their stiffest competition to date on this card as well.
Word is that Robert Brant’s hand was not as bad as thought after his fight Saturday, and he will be fighting Feb 9 in Saint Paul. More on this card in the coming days and weeks.
Also February 9, in Fargo ND, it looks like Tyler “The Hitman” Hultin will get his first main event and first showing as a pro near home. Much more on this in the coming days..
