MONTREAL (QUEBEC) Thursday, January 8th – The STRIKEBOX organization is proud to announce the signature of international star JAMES COLOSSUS THOMPSON for the main event of its inaugural event that will take place on Friday February 6th at Mel’s Studios in Montreal. A native of Bristol, England, Thompson has 14 wins on his record and he is very intimidating with his 6’5 and 255 pounds frame. 11 out of his 14 wins have come by way of knock-out and he’s faced the best heavyweights in the world; he went toe to toe with the likes of Kimbo Slice, Don Frye, Aleksander Emelianenko, Eric “Butterbean” Esch, Hidehiko Yoshida and Dan Severn.
For this inaugural event, Thompson will have his hands full with heavy hitter STEVE “THE BOSS” BOSSE who has 3 wins by knock-out out of his 4 victories. It’s a huge test for Bosse as he faces the biggest challenge of his young career after only 5 professional bouts. Thompson has fought around the world and he’s already faced the toughest strikers in the business — he won’t be intimidated one bit by “The Boss”.
STRIKEBOX will become the event of choice for fans who love stand-up wars as it will feature some of the best strikers in the business. Also on the card for this great night of action: Pete Secret Weapon Spratt vs. Martin The Hammer Grandmont, Hosier Commando Bruno vs. Bob The Train Landry, Johan The Bulldozer Croes vs. Eric Lightning Leclerc, Frederic Pilon vs. Christopher The Tank Boisvert, Adam Kastner vs. Pierrot Speedy Marcoux, Jeff The Shark Sharp vs. Erik The Barbarian Dumaine and some other bouts to be announced shortly.
