Explosive Fight Promotions is set to hold their first event of 2017 next month, as Caged Madness 47 goes down at the organization’s home base of the Tadmor Shrine in Akron, Ohio on April 8.
The event is expected to be headlined by a lightweight bout pitting veteran amateurs T.J. Rigel (5-1) and Jake Schilling (7-1).

Schilling will compete for the first time in more than two years, when he topped Dru Schottenheimer at Caged Madness 34. The 22-year-old Mark Cherico Academy product comes in riding a four-fight winning streak.
