Honor Fighting Championship 3: Operation Shockwave goes down tonight at Chapparells Community Center in Akron, Ohio, and the fight card features a total of 14 bouts, including four pro bouts.
Unbeaten light heavyweights Aleksa Camur (2-0) and Allen Bose (2-0) are slated to headline.
After a 4-0 amateur career, Strong Style’s Camur has continued his pro career where he left off, picking up a knockout and a TKO in his first two outings. After a 20-second knockout over Randy Tran at IT Fight Series 76, he picked up a second round TKO over David White at IT Fight Series 78 last year. He’s ranked as the No. 5 pro light heavyweight in Ohio by Tapology.
Bose also followed up an unbeaten amateur career with a pair of pro wins, as he went 6-0 as an amateur before making his pro debut last September. After a TKO over Eric Ellerbee at Next Level Fight Club 8, he submitted David White in the second round at XCC 30 last month. The North Carolina native is ranked as the No. 2 pro light heavyweight in his home state.
The co-main event features pro lightweights Dru Schottenheimer (3-3) and Kaheem Murray (1-1) squaring off.
Schottenheimer represents Victory MMA in Akron and comes in looking to snap a two-fight losing streak. After starting his career 3-1, he suffered a TKO loss against Kenny Locsei followed by a knockout loss against Michael Jackson in California last year. He’ll come up in weight for this bout, as he’s ranked as the No. 15 pro featherweight in Ohio by Tapology.
Murray comes in from Pennsylvania looking for his second straight win. “The Dream” fights out of Philadelphia and picked up a TKO victory over Timothy Tyler in his last outing in December.
Now representing Strong Style Fight Team, Kelly comes in looking for his third straight win. After starting his career 0-2, he reeled off back-to-back TKO wins in his last two outings. Most recently, he finished Tony Dipiero in the second round at IT Fight Series 78 in December. He’s ranked as the No. 11 pro middleweight in Ohio.
Jeffery fights out of Ontario but is no stranger to competing in Ohio. He picked up wins in his first two pro bouts in the Buckeye State, and also competed in the state seven times as an amateur. He’ll compete for the first time in more than two years, as his last outing was a TKO victory at a King of the Cage event in Niagara Falls in March 2016.
Pfeiffer fights for the first time since coming up short against Jose Martinez in his pro debut at Pinnacle FC 15 in December 2016. The Iron & Soul product has had a hard time finding fights but is ready to return to action.
Defalle comes in from Florida looking to bounce back from a loss in his last outing. He picked up a TKO win in his pro debut last March.
On the amateur side of the card, two titles are on the line, as unbeaten fighters Nick Brashear (7-0) and Ian Suttles (5-0) square off for the super heavyweight title, and Jennifer Hicks (3-0) takes on Kayla Kipp (4-3) for the atomweight title.
