)-- Misha Cirkunov and Rodney Wallace MMA title fight will be broadcast live on Friday, January 30, 2015 from Calgary and available on live Pay-Per-View from HardKnocksFighting.com
Hard Knocks Fighting Championship and Courtesy Chrysler have teamed up to announce the highly anticipated night of professional mixed martial arts, HK 41 at Calgary’s Century Casino on January 30th.
HK 41 will be the biggest night of fights so far for Hard Knocks Fighting Championship, with a stacked card of well matched, exciting fighters and a light heavyweight title match main event.
“There isn’t another fight promotion that comes close to the excitement we have,” Ari Taub, CEO and Founder of Hard Knocks Fighting Championship, said. “HK 41 will not disappoint any fight fan looking to watch some serious action.”
The headlining title bout features one of Canada’s top light heavyweight mixed martial artists, Misha Cirkunov (@Misha_Cirkunov) against Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator Fighting Championship veteran Rodney “ShoNuff The Master” Wallace (@Shonuffmma).
“The pro and amateur Fight Card for HK 41 is the start of a fantastic 2015 season,” Taub said. “Great match-ups like our marquee fight between Cirkunov and Wallace make for great TV and Hard Knocks will be bringing more TV, more fights and more behind-the-scenes access than ever before.”
Cirkunov, 7-2, is originally from Latvia. He is only 27 years old and has only been fighting in the cage professionally since 2010. He trains out of Xtreme Couture in Toronto and his wins are a well rounded mixture of knockouts and submissions.
“I don’t care who is in front of me, I am here to represent Canada,” Cirkunov said. “I can’t wait to get into the cage, I have heard nothing but good things about this promotion, they are helping out fighters and making things happen.”
Wallace, 22-9-1, is a record-breaking college running back from the United States and has racked up 32 professional MMA matches since his career began in 2008. He has battled against light heavyweights in both the UFC and Bellator cages. Wallace is 33 years old and trains with Team R.O.C. in Charlotte, N.C.
Wallace is a brawler and likes to battle it out for all three, or in this case five, rounds. His extensive professional MMA record gives him a massive experience advantage over Cirkunov, however Cirkunov hasn’t lost a fight since 2012 and Wallace has lost half of his last six bouts. Cirkunov is also younger and has a huge reach advantage, standing a whopping 6-foot-3 while Wallace stands at 5-foot-9.
“These athletes are pure inspiration and exciting to watch,” Scott Miranda, Dealer Principal at Courtesy Chrysler, said. “Courtesy Chrysler stands behind these athletes’ dreams and development and is thrilled to help bring fantastic entertainment to MMA fans.”
HK 41 will be broadcast live from Calgary’s Century Casino and available on live pay-per-view worldwide on Friday January 30th at 9 PM ET / 7 PM MT / 6 PM PT.
