Won’t Back Down: Teofista Boxing Series 26 set for Oct. 21st at Calgary’s Deerfoot Inn & Casino!

PhilBoxing.com




October 15, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta: Eric de Guzman’s renowned Teofista Boxing Series is set to return to the Deerfoot Inn & Casino on Saturday Oct. 21st for the 26th installment of the popular gala. Some of Western Canada’s fastest emerging talents are slated to be featured including several big punchers ensuring a night of explosive action.

The event is set to be headlined by ‘The Champ’ and multi-time Canadian title winner Stuart McLellan (21-2-3, 6 KOs) of Williams Lake, BC who will take on hardened Mexican veteran Cesar Figueroa (8-10-1, 5 KOs).

McLellan, known as 'The West Coast Warlord', is surging having reeled off a ten fight unbeaten streak. That run began with a huge upset victory over formerly-world ranked Janks Trotter in February 2016 to capture a Canadian 154-pound crown and continued with a string of wins headlining Teofista Boxing Series’ expansion into Mexico. Largely regarded as one of the most avoided fighters in Canada, McLellan continues to chase an all-Canadian super fight with unbeaten Brandon Brewer and hopes another exciting win next Saturday will cause further demand for the bout.

In the co-main event, ‘Elvis’ will be in the building for a comeback special. Big punching Calgary based cruiserweight Elvis Vukaj (2-1) will look to resume his career fighting for the first time since 2015. A popular fighter due to his quick hands and all-action style, Vukaj has been looking to stage a comeback and after being given a clean bill of medical health by doctors Teofista Boxing is happy to give him the opportunity. He will face the always upset-minded big punching Taylor Bull (3-6, 3 KOs) in what is sure to be a fire-fight.

It will be ‘Bombs Away’ in preliminary action as the card will mark the return of big punching Alberta welterweight Connor ‘The Bomber’ Bush (4-1-1, 2 KOs) who will be clashing with the always exciting Maged Hammo (1-2) of Lethbridge.

In a hotly anticipated rematch, Calgary's Mike Smallwood (5-1, 2 KOs) will look to build on his five-fight unbeaten streak when he re-engages with Kelowna's Dia Grant (1-10, 1 KO). The two battled earlier this year at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino where Smallwood came away with a hard fought majority decision. The spirited Grant exercised his rematch clause and both fighters will look to remove all doubt come Saturday night.

In the opening bout of the evening super lightweights Louie Grover (0-2) of Calgary and Robert Nelson (0-4) of Saskatoon will face off with both men battling hard for their first pro victory. Each fighter is known for their come-forward, fan friendly styles and when all is said and done someone will have “1”!

There has been some buzz about another potential heavyweight bout that may be added to the card so stay tuned for more info!
