Fivestar Fight League is Coming Home, Stewart Defends Middleweight Title against Krahn
Fivestar Fight League will hold their eleventh event in their own back yard of Fort St. John and it will be appropriately titled “Homecoming.”
The organization has had fight cards all over Western Canada for the past year and will finally be putting on a show where their offices and training facility are located. This will help the budding homegrown athletes get an opportunity to fight in front of their hometown crowd.
The promotion does charity work and supports the local communities wherever they bring their shows and Fivestar will look to go above and beyond what the gym and office normally do on a daily basis and show Fort St. John what they can really do.
The headlining bout in what will be FFL’s biggest show in the promotions young history is current FFL Middleweight Champion and hometown boy Brad Stewart defending his title against Cody Krahn. (Stewart ranked 6th in Canada & Krahn ranked 7th in their respected division)
Stewart (6-2) is riding a two-fight winning streak. At Fivestar Fight League 2 he beat Jordan Beecroft and in May 2013 at Fivestar Fight League 6 he triangle choked Matt Baker to win the middleweight title.
Krahn (14-8) is coming off a huge knockout win at MFC 39 against Clay Davidson. Currently on a three-fight winning streak, he will look to keep the ball rolling against Stewart in his second appearance in the Fivestar cage.
