THINGS TO DO

Saturday, September 21

Muskogee MiniCon

Friday, February 8, 2019, 7:26 AM

The official weigh-in for all fighters of Resolution Fight Night is tonight at 7 p.m. at the Muskogee Civic Center. The public is invited. After the weigh-in fans will be able to stick around and meet the fighters and ask questions about the Resolution Fight Night happening on the arena floor on Saturday.

The United States Muay Thai Association has approved a 142-pound weight class belt fight, making a crucial step for fighters in the Midwest region. Fighters from Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois and even as far away as Connecticut and Nevada will make the trek to Muskogee to vie for the honor of hoisting the WBC belt. The fights will be regulated by the Muay Thai association.

The event showcases twelve matches, including two main events: a very promising heavyweight bout (225 pounds) featuring Delvin Nichols vs. JW Hester. The final fight is the battle for the WBC 142-pound belt with fighters Ryan Hoover vs. Austin Streicher.

Kids’ Exhibitions will be conducted with no head contact and are held in accordance to the usual rule sets (consisting of full protective equipment by both sides).

Tickets start at just $10 for general admission and ring-side VIP table seats with exclusive service for only $50. Corporate packages and sponsorships are available. Get tickets at: muskogeeciviccenter.com, ticketstorm.com, or on the day of the event at the Muskogee Civic Center Box Office beginning at 5 p.m. Official bouts begin at 7 p.m.
