By FCF Staff X-1 World Events has confirmed the final card for the promotion’s upcoming “Heroes” event, which will take place September 11th at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii. The card will be headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Falaniko Vitale (pictured left) and challenger Kala “Kolohe” Hose, and will also feature second round action from the promotion’s light-heavyweight tournament.
