School of Hard Knocks 31 will be taking place Saturday, March 2nd, at Spectra Place in Estevan, SK. This is an All Amateur card, in support of the Estevan Junior Bruins. The event will be action packed, and we have 2 titles on the line to highlight the show. Fighters will be coming from Provinces across Canada to showcase their talents, including Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and a good number of fighters from Saskatchewan, who will have the support of the home crowd. These include local Estevan fighters Mike Geib, Travis Heibert, Tyler Traub, Greg Alberts, Michael Keating, and Eric Gedak.
Independant fighter Felix Jimenez out of Estevan, SK will be squaring off against Team Tompkins Affiliate Leeroy Johnson from London, ON in a Heavyweight tilt that is sure to please. Jimenez has won his last 2 fights, and Johnson is coming off a submission-due-to-strikes victory. Our Co-Main Event of the evening is for the Hard Knocks Amateur Lightweight Title, which will see Chris Chapman face off against David Swanson for the belt. Chapman, who hails from Red Deer, AB and trains out of Arashido, is currently on a 4 fight win streak. His opponent Swanson trains out of Winnipeg Academy of MMA, who won his last fight via Decision. To finish the night, we have the Amateur Light-Heavyweight Title up for grabs between Devon Smith of Laronge, SK and Kevin Legasse out of Medicine Hat, AB. Devon “The Giant Killer” Smith is on a 4-fight tear; all 4 were finishes, 3 via Strikes in the 1st Round. Legasse is no slouch himself, currently on a 3 fight win streak, the last of which he secured the Middleweight Title for another promotion. The further Legasse can make it past the first round with the heavy-handed Smith, the better his chances are to take the belt.
Come out to the show to support your local fighters and the Estevan Junior Bruins on March 2nd and enjoy this great card. For VIP Table availability, please contact Ari Taub by email firstname.lastname@example.org .
