Hicks vs Chiappe at BFL 10
Fresh off his debacle in Nova Scotia where Hicks was ruled unable to fight by the Nova Scotia Boxing Authority, Marcus Hicks has signed to fight with Battlefield Fight League in Vernon on August 20th. His opponent will by Ryan Chiappe, a fighter who is undefeated in BFL.
Hicks most recent win was against former TKO champion Yan Pellerin at Ringside 11. It was Hicks first since a lengthy medical suspension. Hicks is 11-20 in his career, but has showed signs of being a reformed professional who now does his talking in the cage.
Chiappe, who is from Prince George, BC, is a former King of the Cage title holder and is 2-0 in the BFL. Chiappe first beat Levi Alford in a 180 lb catchweight fight and then took out Bill Fraser in a Welterweight matchup where Chiappe weighed in a few pounds heavy.
This fight will be the semi-main event for BFL 10 in Vernon. Already announced is a main event between Marcos Vinicius and Matt Baker.
