Demon Steps Up to Face Hell Boy
When Curtis Demarce signed his new multi-fight deal with the Maximum Fighting Championship, he hoped he would soon get an opportunity to face one of the combatants in the featured matchup of Kajan Johnson vs. Richie Whitson slated for MFC 28.
Demarce’s wish came true faster than expected as he draws in as an injury replacement. In what could be tabbed as an “All-Evil” encounter, “The Demon” will now face “Hell Boy” Whitson on the card set for Friday, Feb. 25 at the River Cree Resort and Casino, just outside Edmonton, Alberta.
Johnson, the popular Vancouver, B.C., product, has been sidelined by a separated shoulder, leaving the door open for Demarce (10-7), who puts his seven-fight winning streak on the line against Whitson.
Whitson (10-1) will be carrying his own four-fight streak into the bout as the Temecula, California, product makes his organizational debut.
Demarce made his debut under the MFC banner last September, and the 22-year-old from Brandon, Manitoba, turned in the best performance of his career. Demarce secured the win over Tyson Steele with a second-round triangle choke, earning himself the runner-up spot on the list of the MFC’s 2010 Submissions of the Year. Six of Demarce’s career wins have come via submission.
