3 Lions Promotions of Hamilton, Ontario hosts “Saturday Night Fights”, Saturday, February 11th at the Hamilton Convention centre. The Main Event will feature WBA Canadian Cruiser Weight Champion and the WBC National Silver Champion, (16-1) Ryan Rozicki vs (10-2) Arturs Gorlov in 10 or less. This fight is almost guaranteed to end in knockout as Rozicki boasts a near flawless knockout percentage with all but 1 of his 17 wins come by knockout. His only loss was a razor close decision to the Bridger-Weight World Champion Oscar Rivas. Rozicki’s opponent Gorlov is a very tough slugger from Latvia. Arturs, an ex Glory Kickboxer holds a strong record of 10-2 with 8 knockouts. I expect both men to bring their Top Game as World Title Implications could be on the line.
The Co-main Event features the WBC Youth Light Weight Champion, (10-1-2) Pedro Bernal as he takes on the tough as nails, local fan favorite, (4-1-3) Paul “Iron” Ispas in a scheduled 10 rounder. Pedro Bernal is among the elite young talent coming from Mexico right now. He proved that in his last outing against Top Australian prospect George Payne. Ispas is an experienced amateur, crafty and slick southpaw who throws fast combinations. Ispas will bring the fight to the Young Pedro Bernal. I have a feeling this could be be the Fight of The Night.

Bianco will be looking to get the job done inside of the scheduled 8 rounds.
