With Honor Fighting Championship 5: Fightfest pushed back two weeks, the event will now feature an all-amateur card with at least two titles on the line.
Going down at Chapparells Community Center in Akron, Michael Addo (5-0) and William Ferguson (5-2) will square off for the lightweight title, while Jamaal McClain (4-0) and Fred Davis (5-4) vie for the middleweight title.
Addo comes in from Michigan with an unblemished record that he’ll look to improve upon. Originally from Ghana, he now trains at Mash Gym and has won three straight fights via first round submission. He’s ranked as the No. 4 amateur lightweight in Michigan.
Ferguson travels from Erie, Pennsylvania where he represents 3 Elements Jiu-Jitsu. He’s produced three victories via submission, including both of his last two fights. The former high school wrestler looks to claim the title and improve upon his No. 9 amateur lightweight ranking in Pennsylvania.
McClain represents Victory MMA and also puts his perfect record on the line. He’s produced two wins via TKO and was last seen in action in January, when he topped Chris Fattig at Honor FC 2 to earn a title shot. He’s ranked as the No. 7 amateur middleweight in Ohio.
The MTC Hornets’ Davis continues to go strong at 42 years of age, as he looks for his third straight win and first title. He put on an impressive performance in his victory over Roy Nichols Jr. at Honor FC 3 in March to earn a title shot.
