"Meat Truck" Headlines Extreme Fights 2 in Cincinnati
MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio — Kerry "Meat Truck" Schall hopes to continue his winning ways this Saturday when he faces Joe Campanella in the main event of Extreme Fights 2 at Spears Boxing School.
Schall, from Cincinnati, will have the support of his hometown fans when he faces Campanella, a tough brawler from Boston who has fought the likes of UFC fighters Andre Roberts and Bobby Hoffman.
"I just won a 4-man tournament in Minnesota, so I hope to keep heading in the right direction," said Schall, a 6-foot-3, 275-pounder. "My goal is to make it to UFC or Pride… but I’m taking it one step at a time… I want to keep improving my skills… I’m not in a hurry to get somewhere."
Schall, who trains with undefeated Rich Franklin, has been making the 6-hour trip to train at the Miletich Martial Arts Center in Iowa in recent months. He was impressive in Minnesota where he finished both opponents in the first round.
Promoter Monte Cox says there are still a couple openings to compete at 170 pounds. Interested fighters should call 563 332-2075 or email him at mailto:Fiteiowa@aol.com.

Freestyle Fighting Championship
SportFightingUSA unveiled its newest promotion, the "Freestyle Fighting Championship" at the President Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi on January 12th. The FFC event literally played before a "Standing Room Only" crowd of over 1000 people. Joe Giardina the Marketing Director for the President Casino was quoted as saying "this is the biggest gate we have ever had here!" FFC President and matchmaker Rob Braniff added "Lee Coates and I have been developing relationships, building infrastructure and planning the birth of this organization for over a year. It was gratifying to see the community turn out to this extent." The card featured eleven bouts, here are the quick results.
Jason Wright vs. John David Shakleford – 184.9 lb division Shakleford by arm bar, round 1. Hats off to these guys for stepping up as both of their respective opponents pulled out. A great way to start off the night as both guys exhibited aggression, good stand-up skills and lots of heart.
Aaron Williams vs. Trey Desmuke – 154.9 lb division Williams by choke, round 1. Initially a slugfest until Williams gained control on the ground and sunk in a fast choke. Williams is a great amateur who looks ready to go pro.
Youth exhibition match
Richardo Gonzales vs. Jeremiah O Neal – 169.9 lb division O’Neil by armbar, 1st round. O’Neal dropped weight to fight in the 170 lb. division and looked impressive early as he traded vicious leg kicks with Muay Thai fighter Gonzales. O’ Neal’s wrestling experience came into play with a great takedown and was able to secure the arm bar after a few minutes of furious action on the ground.
Exhibition Submission Match
Darryle Burkey vs. Grady Hurley – 184.9 lb division Hurley by key lock round 1. Burkey took the fight on short notice and nearly made short work of Hurley with a guillotine choke shortly after the bell rang. Hurley however remained calm and used excellent technique to escape the hold. A scramble ensued with Hurley securing the key lock late in the round.
John Miller vs. Jesse Ault – 204.9 division Ault by 1st round ref stoppage. Excellent fight. Miller pressed the advantage early and even had Ault down in the corner blasting leg kicks from the stand up position, but after a scramble Ault landed a flurry that forced ref Mike Gallo to intervene and halt the bout.
