For the first time in Ontario MMA history, a Canadian promotion is live on national television. The Score fighting series is holding its first live to air event on saturday August 25th at the Hamilton Palace Theatre, in Hamilton Ontario. This is the fifth event that the score has put on but the first to air live on the Score channel. The events main card is live on the Score starting at 9pm while the undercard can be viewed live at scorefighting.com starting at 6:30.
JOSH HILL ON VERGE OF THE BIG SHOW!
The main event pits undefeated bantamweight Josh Hill vs Sarnia's own the "Haggis Basher" John Fraser. Both of the these high paced athletes are on the verge of making it to the next level and the winner just may find himself on the big show after this event. Will Hill's athleticism and wrestling skills be enough to keep Fraser on his back and see the victory go to the young fighter out of stoney creek? Or will the unrelentless offensive attack of the Haggis Basher see an end to Hill's undefeated record. One thing for sure is, this is going to be one hell of a fight!
ALEX RICCI PUTS UNDEFEATED RECORD ON THE LINE
Both fighters in the co main event find themselves in a similar position as Hill and Fraser. A win here could see them elevated to greener pastures at a bigger event. 5-0 Alex Ricci has looked unstoppable in all of his bouts, and has finished all of his opponents by Ko/Tko. He has transitioned very well from successful Muay Thai career into a top prospect in the Canadian MMA scene. Standing in his way is Adrenaline Training Centers Jesses Ronson. The hard hitting veteran has a lot more experience than Ricci and is looking to be the next star to come out of London Ontario. Fireworks are going to be on display for this one.
Also on the card are top canadian prospect Will Romero, Jason Saggo, Tristan Johnson and Frank Marques. Kimurawear is proud to sponsor all of these athletes as well as the above mentioned Josh Hill and Alex Ricci. We wish all of these fighters the best of luck on the 25th.
