Fred Davis vs Jamaal McClain

Honor Fighting Championship 5: Fightfest is set to go down this weekend, and the 15-bout amateur card will be headlined by a pair of title fights.

Going down at Chapparells Community Center in Akron, Jamaal McClain (4-0) and Fred Davis (5-4) vie for the middleweight title, while Michael Addo (5-0) and Kyle Booth (6-6) will square off for the welterweight title.

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. 6 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.

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. 2 amateur welterweight in Michigan.

Booth has won three of his last four bouts, but he comes in looking to rebound from a loss in his last outing against Izzy William at IT Fight Series 78 in December. He’s produced all of his wins via stoppage since his debut in 2010, including five submissions.

Also, Eric Pozun (3-0) will put his unbeaten record on the line when he faces Timothy Hughes (2-1), and Casey Turnbull (3-0) looks to stay unbeaten when he faces Lucas Mast (2-1).
