Kokomo, Indiana – We are back in the National Guard Armory for Colosseum Combat XXXII. Tonight’s main event will feature ten fights including a main event bout between Andrew Holbrook (9-0) and Tyler Combs for the promotions currently vacant professional lightweight title.
Originally, Combs was set to square off against another opponent this evening but after he had withdrawn from the bout Holbrook stepped up to the challenge. Of course, this came with the added benefit of being a title fight. A lot is riding on this fight for both men, more so for Holbrook. The Indy Box & Grappling fighter currently boast an impressive undefeated professional record.
On the amateur side of the card, we will see a rematch between Kevin Purvis (3-1) and Aaron Highbaugh (9-3). In their first fight, the two the distance and it was Highbaugh who came out on top. Just three months removed from that matchup, Purvis is looking to avenge his the only blemish on his amateur record.
Tonight professional action is sanctioned by the Indiana Gaming Commission under the supervisor of Andy Means. The amateur portion of the card will be overseen by the MMAC sanctioning body. If you can’t make it out to the event, you can watch it on LIVE iPPV for only $7.50 (click here to order Colosseum Combat XXXII).
