Horodecki vs. Hackney Confirmed for The Score Fighting Series
Sep 24, 2012
(PRESS RELEASE) -- TORONTO, September 20, 2012 –The Score Fighting
Series (SFS) today confirmed that Chris
Horodecki will take on veteran Kalvin
Hackney in the main event at the RBC Centre in Sarnia, Ontario
on Friday, October 19th.
Horodecki (18-4), from London, Ontario, will be making his second
appearance at The Score Fighting Series. The Team Tompkins product
is a WEC and IFL veteran, where he made his name for his aggressive
style and technical striking. He is currently honing his skills at
the Tristar gym in Montreal as he looks to climb the featherweight
ladder. And he will most definitely have the crowd behind him on
October 19th, with a lot of supporters expected to make the short
trip to Sarnia.
“Hackney is coming to my backyard and he’ll be looking for the win,
but I’m not going to let that happen,” said Horodecki. “He’s going
to be a tough opponent. He’s athletic and strong and comes forward
with a very aggressive style. But I’m ready for whatever he’s
Hackney (12-3), from Alexandria, Louisiana, is determined to make
his mark on what will be his SFS debut. A lethal striker with more
than half his wins coming via knockout, Hackney’s power is boosted
thanks to his competitive body building as well as a successful
high school wrestling career. He will be looking to use this power
to overcome Horodecki, knowing that three of his opponent’s four
career losses have been via KO.
Event promoter Brendan Fyfe said: “The Score Fighting Series looks
to showcase dynamic young fighters and to create the most exciting
match-ups possible. This fight fits the bill on both counts. In
Chris and Kalvin we have two guys who are more than willing to
stand and trade which is always a recipe for action.”
In preliminary card welterweight action, Josh
Taveirne from Windsor, Ontario will look to get his record to
.500 when he takes on Brett
Biederman from Paris, Ontario. Both fighters are coming off
losses in their last appearances with Taveirne falling to Chad
Laprise in an April Bellator match-up while Biederman was
submitted by Ryan
Dickson in August 2011.
The main card will be televised live in Canada on theScore
Television Network and in the US on AXS TV beginning 10:00pm EST.
Tickets are on sale now starting at $29.95 and can be purchased
through the RBC Centre box office and rbccentresarnia.com.
