The partnership came about as a way to replace the mud bogs as the Rotary’s major fundraiser.
Ari Taub, owner of Hard Knocks says Hard Knocks plans on bringing a solid show to Fort St. John and a number of fighters have been in the UFC or have UFC potential.
“Hard Knocks is going to be a diamond of an event in Fort St. John. There’s going to be lights, there’s going to be sounds, there’s going to be great fights, there’s going to be some knock outs. It’s going to be just like a mini UFC. I think our main event guys Rodney Wallace and Ariel Gandulla are really good fighters. We’ve got another guy out of Calgary named Anton Tokarchuk that I think will probably go to the UFC. Those will probably be the highlights on this card.”
Tickets for Hard Knocks can be purchased on the organization’s website and are $78.40 or $33.60 for kids under.
