Six undefeated fighters…two MMA veterans going head to head in a pro boxing debut for both of them, and a featured bout featuring a 3-0 vs 4-0…now that’s a show you don’t want to miss!

Let’s first talk about this unique boxing matchup featuring UFC and Bellator veteran Curtis Millender facing Bellator and KOC veteran John Mercurio in a six round bout. Both fighters had winning MMA records and each had over 15 pro mma fights, but they want to now put 10oz gloves and shoes on and start throwing jabs, hooks, and uppercuts. This bout alone is worth the price of admission!
