Three of the Comox Valley’s best fighters will be in Nanaimo this Saturday to compete in Battlefield 7 Invasion.
Mike “Powerhouse” Hackert, Bill “The Monk” Fraser and Travis Petersen will square off in one of the biggest shows that the Island has ever seen, said Bulldog Fight Team coach Jonny Mac.
Hackert is set to be the co-main event against Bastien Huveneers. Huveneer’s just coming off of a big win in Edmonton to capture the TFC middleweight championship and will be a tough challenge for Hackert.
“Nonetheless I’ve never seen (Hackert) so focused and he is in the best shape of his life.” said Mac. “Count on this to be the fight of the night.”
Mac said Hackert has a lot to prove after coming off a controversial loss to Nick Hincliff in November. “He has learned not to leave the fght in the hands of the judges – expect this fight to end early,” Mac added.
Fraser is set to compete in his fourth fight as a member of the Bulldog Fight Team. This would be the first time Fraser has had a full training camp in his many fights. “His last four fights have come at short notice and being fully prepared is a luxury at this point,” Mac Said. “He is set to fight Mike Hill from Vancouver. Expect this one to end in a submission.”
Mac said Petersen is making the trip all the way from Fort Mac where he has been working full time and training three hours every night. Coming off his first win in Lethbridge only a month ago, Petersen will be facing Morgan Bentley.
“Pettrsen, a traditional boxer, has made the transition to MMA very easily and posseses the ability to end a fight quickly with his hands,” Mac said. “His last oppenent found out quickly that he is no stranger to the ground game as Petersen finished the fight with knee strikes and ground and pound. This one will not go the distance,” Mac predicted.
Tickets to the event are on sale now at the Comox Valley Boxing Club located at 129 Fifth Street or contact the club online at www.cvboxingclub.com.
“We would like to thank our sponsors because without them we wouldnt be where we are today,” said Mac.
