Costa Mesa, CA. – Never one to rest on their past successes, and even with a three show sellout streak on the line, Fight Club OC is never shy about innovation, so a week from tonight So Cal fight fans will be treated to a combative sports tripleheader as promoter Roy Englebrecht brings a nine bout card to The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center.
In a first for California, fans will be treated to a fight menu that contains… four boxing bouts…three mixed martial arts bouts…and in the newest addition…two muay thai bouts!! The Thursday, October 3rd show will certainly be one of the most exciting shows of the year for combat sports fans, so make plans today to be there.
The boxing part of the show will see some top young boxers look to stay undefeated and some looking for a win in their pro debut.
