Dan Spohn will return to Canada for a second time next month, as he’s set to compete at Hard Knocks 53 in Calgary.
The Ohio native is set to take on Brazilian Flavio Magon (10-7) in a light heavyweight bout.
Spohn is 6-1 in his last seven bouts, but the only loss in that span came against Rodney Wallace at HK 48 in a light heavyweight title both earlier this year. In his last outing, he stopped Jeff Hughes via TKO in the fifth round to win the heavyweight title at IT Fight Series 48 earlier this month. “Dragon” posted a 2-1 record in 2016, also earning a victory over Robert Morrow at Gladiators of the Cage 21 in June.
Magon competes for the first time outside of his native Brazil, and he looks to snap out of a 1-4 streak in his last five fights. Six of his ten wins have come via TKO or knockout.
Hard Knocks 53 takes place on Jan. 27 in Calgary. The event airs live on via iPPV on GFL for $14.99.
