Scholten to Return after 3 Year Absence
Battlefield Fight League has added a showcase of featherweights to the card for BFL 7: Invasion to be held Saturday, March 26 in Nanaimo B.C.
Graham Spencer (6-1) will square-off against David Scholten (7-4) in a main-card encounter. This fight which features 2 of British Columbia’s top 5 featherweights could have implications on BFL’s featherweight title picture.
Spencer is fresh off a decisive three-round victory over Mukai Maromo-a fight he dominated by mounting Maromo on numerous occasions and raining down his trade mark ground and pound. Coming off the fight, the Nanaimo Native signed a three-fight contract with BFL which kicks off with his clash against Scholten.
Scholten, meanwhile, will be looking for a bit of redemption coming into the fight. Scholten was last in action fighting for the King of the Cage title, a fight which he suffered a 2nd round loss to top Canadian Featherweight Nick Denis. That setback ended a three-fight winning streak for the 34-year-old, Vancouver, B.C, product.
“This is my fight-my year. I am finally fighting at Featherweight, I feel much better and stronger in this weight class. Spencer is one of Canada’s top featherweights and a win over him will put me right in title contention.” Said Scholten.
“Spencer-Scholten is a huge fight in our Featherweight division. Spencer wants to redeem his only career loss against Mike Adams. Many believe that fight was somewhat controversial, so if Graham goes out there and dominates a guy like Scholten I don’t see any reason why Adams would not give him a rematch. If Scholten wins, he’ll probably get the winner of Capdeville/Albrecht later on in the year so this fight is huge for both these guys. We got guys like Hardeep Singh thinking of moving up to the 45s also so there is a lot of interesting fights in the horizon for the Featherweights, we just gotta wait and see how these guys do in March.” Stated Battlefield President Golshani.
Battlefield Fight League 7 “Invasion” will be headlined with a matchup between Denis Kang and Jesse Taylor. Tickets for “Invasion” are available now through http://www.ticketscene.ca/events/3460/.
