)-- In an exciting turn of events, King of the Cage and Lake of the Torches Resort Casino announce that former Green Bay Packer running back Herbert "Whisper" Goodman will fight undefeated Tony Bonello in tomorrow’s KOTC: Sub Zero main event.
Michael J. Broderick, Director of Marketing for Lake of the Torches Resort Casino stated that: “To have a former running back of the Green Bay Packers fighting right after the Packers have their first playoff game, well, this is definitely a card for the record books. Every true MMA and Packer fan should be at this fight to see “Whisper” go head-to-head with the undefeated fighter from down-under Tony “The Gun” Bonello.”
One of Australia's most famous cage-fighting Superstars, Tony "The Gun" Bonello will be bouncing back after a majority draw against Ryan Sturdy what was touted to be one the best and bloodiest stand and bang battles in Mixed Martial Arts history. The "Gun" is considered to be one of the fastest fighters on the planet that thrives off trading headshots.
“I invite the entire state of Wisconsin to see this fight live in the beautiful Northwoods of Lac du Flambeau at Lake of the Torches,” said Broderick. Tickets are available online at www.kingofthecage.com or by calling Lake of the Torches Casino Player Services at 1-800-25-TORCH. You must be 18 or older to see the show.
