Remember that fight between Roxanne Modafferi and Tara Larosa? The details have now been sorted and it will be taking place November 8th in Chicago.
As part of what it calls its “Affiliate Promoters Program,” the American Fight League has loaned top female fighter Tara LaRosa (15-1), opponent Roxanne Modafferi (12-4) and notable featherweight Raphael Assuncao (11-1) to the Illinois-based Ironheart Crown organization.
The three competitors will compete on the Nov. 8 “Ironheart Crown XII: Resurrection” card.
The event, which features a headline bout of UFC veteran Gideon Ray (15-9-1) vs. Juan Magana (6-0), takes place at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.
So the good news is that I can go to this event! The bad news is that this event won’t be on PPV, so Roxy is gonna have a hard time finding sponsors. So as we speak, details are being ironed out and we hope to be able to announce a plan whereby jackals sponsor Roxy in her quest to claim the #1 spot at 135 pounds.
