The two top amateur mixed martial arts middleweights in B.C. are getting to rumble in Courtenay.
After the huge news of Victoria-based Armageddon Fighting Championship merging with two of Canada’s top promotions to create the Aggression Fighting Championships (AFC), they take their first step in expansion to invade the Comox Valley Sports Centre on July 21.
The occasion is the latest in the Comox Valley Boxing Club’s Full Throttle fighting series. “And we bring with us the best amateur fight card that this province has ever seen for a night guaranteed to bring the most exciting sports event the Comox Valley has ever witnessed,” an AFC spokesperson said.
In the main event of the evening, Comox’s own Fraser Jordan (4-0)
will face-off against his toughest test to date, Chilliwack’s Wade Apps (4-0) to determine who is the best in B.C.
Along with the main event, the Island’s and B.C.’s best will throw down in the cage including top standouts Oren Hanscomb (4-2), Chris Anderson (4-1) and Dillon Brown (4-1) who are all top-ranked fighters from the Island. Local fighters participating on the card will be Chris Anderson 2.0 (2-2), Philip Romanov (2-1), Dustin Porter (2-1), Andrew Payne (1-0), Damian McGeary (1-0) and Isak Van Bourgendien (2-2).
“This night will go down as one of the greatest sporting events in the history of the Comox Valley – you won’t want to miss all the live action from inside the cage,” the AFC spokesperson said.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through the AFC website at www.armageddonfc.com, the Sid Williams Theatre box office, or by calling 250-388-2430. Prices range from $40 general admission up to $100 for VIP cageside seating. This is an all ages show.
