Ronson vs Ricci Set for August 25th
*SCORE FIGHTING SERIES PRESS RELEASE)
TORONTO, July 25th 2012 – Two of the most dynamic strikers in The Score Fighting Series are on a collision course, with Alex Ricci set to go head-to-head with Jesse “The Body Snatcher” Ronson on Saturday, August 25th in Hamilton, Ontario.
Ricci (5-0) from Woodbridge, Ontario will take his undefeated record into the cage against heavy-handed London, Ontario native Ronson (9-2). This dream match-up has MMA fans abuzz over what will happen when two of the most dangerous young fighters in the sport finally meet in the cage.
Ronson is a seasoned combat sports veteran who honed his lethal hands and feet while racking up wins in MMA, kickboxing and boxing. He has finished more than half his fights via KO/TKO and is currently riding a four fight win streak. He trains in his hometown at Adrenaline MMA alongside some of Canada’s top fighters, including WEC veteran Chris Horodecki and current UFC fighters Sam Stout, Mark Hominick and Chris Clements.
Ricci is the definition of a striker and, although he has only five MMA fights on his record, has made a big impact in a very short period of time.
Ricci countered with his own prediction. “Jesse’s a great fighter, and that’s why I asked for this fight. I’m particularly interested in him because we’re both strikers and I want to prove that he’s not on my level. I’m well rounded and very
confident everywhere in this one, but I really want to stand with him and prove who is the best. I’ve knocked out every one of my opponents and I’ll be looking to knock Ronson out as well. ”
Other fighters confirmed for the card include Elias Theodorou, Jason Meisel, Ryan Dickson, Jason Saggo, Adam Assenza and Rory McDonell. Opponents for all will be announced shortly, pending match-up approvals by the Ontario Athletics Commission.
Every fight on the card will be streamed live on theScore.com and, for the first time ever, fights from the main card will be carried live on theScore Television Network starting at 9:00pm EST.
