With just over four weeks until Fivestar Fight League’s “Relentless” from the Fort St. John Curling Club, the card is coming along nicely. In all five kickboxing bouts along with eight MMA fights will make up the event which is headlined by Duncan Wilson defending his welterweight championship against Dejan Kajic of Vancouver.
Fivestar owner Justin Donally said with kickboxing bouts typically being shorter in duration with two minute rounds as oppose to three for MMA, the goal was to bring more of it into future cards given its positive response with its debut last time out.
“We’ve been building up to that since we put the first kickboxing fight in Fort St. John. We have a ton of kickboxers in the Peace region. The goal was to introduce everyone to kickboxing so we did one in Fort St. John last April. The fans love it so we’ve put together five kickboxing fights for this show,” he said.
The prelims portion of the card will all be kickboxing fights with the main event featuring Dylan Lielke taking on Jarrett Vornbrock.
The main card highlights include two local favourites as Duncan Wilson and Travis Lussier will looking to add to their win totals. Lussier will be facing Brad Laboucan, and at stake is the number one contender’s spot in the welterweight division.
Tickets for Relentless went on sale earlier this month with a deal on seats to make the event more affordable given the state of the economy. Donally encouraged fight fans to keep their eyes peeled for future promotions leading up to the card on April 22.
“Keep your eyes on our social media. Stop by our trade show booth. We’re going to be doing a ton more discounted ticket pricing over the next few weeks. We want everybody to be able to come and see the show,” he said.
Tickets can be purchased at Fivestar Mixed Martial Arts and Crossfit at 10412 Alaska Road North, and at Marc Joseph inside of the Totem Mall.
Doors open at the curling club at 5:30 the night of the show with the prelims starting at 6:30, and the main card slated for 7:30.
