Hot on the heels of Friday night’s boxing show in Hinckley comes another show in Mahnomen on Saturday night. Though the latter may not have quite the star appeal of the former, it does seem to promise some interesting matchups, courtesy of matchmaker and unretired boxer John Hoffman.
What to watch for: Seasoned veterans Christopher Holt and JJ Corn headline the show as light heavyweights. Crowdpleaser Patrick Cape comes up from the Cities to meet North Dakota’s Jesse Barbot on neutral ground. Brad Croaker hopes to stay unbeaten as he takes on Wolfman Marty Lindquist, who could really use a win, in a cruiserweight bout. Nick Whiting and Ron Krull meet in a ‘somebody’s got to win’ matchup. Mike Davis takes on debuting welterweight David Laque. Gage Sargent and Mike Dempsey both make their pro boxing debuts in a cruiserweight tilt. Game Yancy Cuellar looks for his first career win against Leroy Wadena. And John Gorden makes his pro debut against Harold McLeod in a lightweight matchup of inexperience versus inexperience.
