Zuniga vs Holst Headlines Stacked Canadian Fighting Championship Card
Canadian Fighting Championship is set for next Friday February 6th at the Winnipeg Convention Center.
There have been some last minute changes to the card. The Canadian Fighting Championship would like to thank everybody who helped finalize this card on short notice – from the managers, the fighters, and the Manitoba Boxing Commission. Special thanks to Mark Pavelich from Maximum Fighting Championship for helping out with last minute replacements by allowing the CFC to use some of his contracted fighters.
The featured bout with Robin Black took a turn for the worse this week as his original opponent tore his knee and was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Quick to step up was New Brunswick’s Stephane Poirier who needed no time accepting the fight. Stephane is 2-0 and has been looking for a match with Black for awhile. Stephane had this to say when asked about what this match means to him, “I’m excited to fight anybody, but Robin hypes it up and it makes this my most interesting fight yet. I want to test his skills and if he can defeat me I think he will have a place in MMA for sure.”
