Southern Replaces Holst in WRECK Fight with Guillet
Due to personal reasons, Mark ‘Boots’ Holst will no longer be facing BTT Canada standout Samuel Guillet. But, Wreck is excited to announce that his replacement will be one of Canada’s top lightweights; Alliance member Kurt Southern. Southern is coming off a dominating victory against Tristar/Team Bergeron member Martin ‘The Hammer’ Grandmont. Southern cemented himself as a top Canadian lightweight with that destructive performance against the veteran Grandmont; who has wins against Holst and Tyler Jackson.
Officially added to the card is a bout between two undefeated bantamweights as the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts’ Xavier Desrochers enters the ring against Team MFC’s Brent Franczuz. Desrochers has been impressive in his first two MMA fights and is looking to add the talented Franczuz to his list of victims.
The event is headlined by two of the world’s top bantamweights as Ottawa’s own and Sengoku veteran Nick ‘The Ninja of Love’ Denis takes on Team Quest member Ian ‘The Barn Owl’ Loveland. Neither fighter has had a boring fight and this fight is expected to be a five round war; if neither gets knocked out before that! Moved up to the co-main event will be another candidate for Fight of the Night, as two of Canada’s top upcoming welterweights Louis-Phillipe Carle and Simon Marini enter the Wreck ring with the goal of taking the next step in the careers. The winner of this fight will be in a position to take a big next step as a huge international level fight will follow.
Also on the card is one of Ottawa’s most popular fighters, Craig ‘Farmer’ Brown, who will be facing the undefeated prospect from Alberta, Chase Degenhardt. Also on the card is a darkhorse for Fight of the Night as Mike ‘Hurricane’ Hong makes his bantamweight debut against the unbeaten Stephane Pelletier. The winner of that bout could possible face the winner of the Desrochers vs. Franczuz fight in a future Wreck event.
