Canadian Rumour Mill – July 18
Sorry I am a day late, but I had was at the beach getting my tan on. A little slower this week for rumours but a big one did break today with Cyborg taking on Canada’s Mein. Go Young Gun!
- AFC is continually growing, I’m hearing that they’ve signed a deal with a European TV station to broadcast AFC 1-12. Well done!
- Also speaking of AFC, looks like BJJ wizard Robert Drysdale will be fighting for their vacant light heavyweight belt on the November 12th show.
- I’m hearing Canada’s #9 ranked Lightweight, 9-0 The Fight Club champ, Mitch Clarke might be going for a swim in Shark infested waters. ;)
- Colloseo will now be held in Mayerthorpe, Alberta on September 3rd I’m hearing.
- Well I guess the HFP show didn’t turn out so smooth after all. It seems like alls not well at Hope Fight Productions! I’m hearing tons of rumours about internal conflict and infighting, money potentially disappearing, and a major rift between the promoters… boy oh boy! Looks like there may be two separate promotions, one being led by Ken Hope who’s been mentioning a show in September in Digby, NS and one led by Sara Steinke and Allen Hope back in Yarmouth later in the year. Who’s going keep the Hope Fight Productions name, who’s going to survive. Major drama WOW!
- Steven Rogers retired before his much hyped rematch with Ricky Goodall, darn!
- Unified is hoping to start a 4-man 135er tourney on their upcoming September 30th show. Some rumoured participants are Mike Davis (6-3), Mike Hofer (3-0), Roy Park (2-0).
