Toledo, Ohio (November 4, 2014) – For the second time in less than four months, RISE Fighting brings another action packed fight card as it presents RISE Boxing 2 live from the Grand Plaza Hotel in downtown Toledo, Ohio December 5th. This stacked card will feature some of the best up-and-coming prospects in the mid-west as well as some of the top prospects in Ohio and Michigan.
“The response we received in August was overwhelming,” said RISE Fighting promoter, Fred Vallejo. “It is because of that response and the support that we are able to have a quick turn around with our second event in under four months. This will be another great night of live professional boxing that you won’t want to miss,” he continued.
Toledo based fighter, Sonny Fredrickson (5-0, 5 KO’s) will headline the night of fights in a six round bout. Fredrickson made his Toledo debut at the inaugural RISE 1 Boxing event this past August. Fredrickson quickly dispatched his opponent David Nelson (2-1) with a well-placed body shot in front of a frenzy Toledo crowd. Nelson was unable to continue and was counted out by the referee awarding Fredrickson the TKO victory in round one. “It felt good fighting at home for the first time,” said Fredrickson. “I have a fight set for November 8th in Texas but I look forward to come back home in December and competing in front of all Toledo again,” he continued. “There are no other fans like Toledo fans. It’s like when I get in the ring, we all get in the ring and I feed of off their support. The Glass City will not be disappointed come December 5th,” he finished. RISE Fighting is currently in the negotiation stages with a few potential opponents.
