Alexa Camur faces Branko Busick at IT Fight Series 72

It looks like the first fight was announced for IT Fight Series 72 which is set to take place on March 25, in Akron, Ohio. Strong Style’s Aleksa Camur (4-0) will put his undefeated streak on the line when he steps into the cage against former collegiate football player Branko Busick (5-1).

The two will be vying for the promotion’s light-heavyweight title.

Camur is coming off a second-round stoppage against highly regarded prospect Lance Phillips (7-1) at Big Guns 19. The fight, in which Camur was the sizeable underdog, was one many thought Phillips would win easily. It turns out Camur had other plans as he pulled off the finish giving Phillips his first taste of defeat.

The win put Camur atop the amateur light-heavyweight division on the BluegrassMMA Rankings.

In his four amateur fights, Camur has finished all of his opponents including an impressive first-round 0:18 knockout over George Howard in his debut match. He also holds wins over Apineru Vele and Ricky Davis.

Busick is returning to the IT Fight Series cage after he submitted Cody Kelley in the opening minute of their fight at IT Fight Series 42. Busick who played collegiate football at the California University of Pennsylvania and West Virginia University made his debut back in 2012.

After starting his amateur career with three first round stoppages, Busick earned his first title fight. He faced Curt Lemmon, who at the time was undefeated, for the Big Bully MMA heavyweight championship. It was the first time and only time that Busick had gone outside of the opening round. It ended up going to the scorecards where Lemmon ended up taking the fight by unanimous decision.

The loss put Busick on the sidelines for two years. He returned to the cage stopping Tyree Johnson in just thirty seconds at Caged Madness 37.

Both fighters will be looking to capture their first amateur title. For Busick, this will be the first time he makes the cut to light-heavyweight.

The latest IT Fight Series 72 card now includes:

– Aleksa Camur (4-0) vs. Branko Busick (5-1) – Light-Heavyweight Title
