Undefeated Canadian Prospect Josh Hill To Face Eric Wilson At The Score Fighting Series March 16
By FCF Staff
The Score Fighting Series has addeda bantamweight (135 pound) matchup between undefeated prospect Josh Hill (7-0) and fellow Canadian rising star Eric Wilson (5-1) to its event at the Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on March 16.
Additionally, a lightweight (155 pounds) matchup between unbeaten Jason Meisel (2-0) of Caledonia and Mike Sledzion (3-2) of Barrie; a featherweight (145 pounds) battle between Lyndon Whitlock (5-2) of Hamilton and Cory Houston (4-1) of Winnipeg; and a heavyweight (max 265 pounds) clash between John McPherson (1-1) of Hamilton and Craig “War Dog” Hudson (1-1) of Brantford, have all been confirmed for the event lineup.
Last month, the promotion announced its first fight for the card – a lightweight matchup between UFC and PRIDE veteran and Xtreme Couture team member John “The Natural” Alessio (33-14) and Strikeforce and WEC veteran and Team Quest member “Diamond” Ryan Healy (19-9-1).
Training primarily out of Iron Tiger Muay Thai and Bruckman’s Martial Arts, the 25-year-old Hill showcased strong striking skills at the start of his career, but has recently relied more heavily on his wrestling to secure wins.
Wilson, also 25, has a strong ground game, including a fight-finishing leg lock. He trains out of Outlaw MMA and holds a victory over current UFC fighter Roland Delorme.
Wilson suffered his first professional loss last May against another top bantamweight in John “The Haggis Basher” Fraser.
“Eric is a very tough opponent and is coming off his first loss so I’m sure he will come out hungry, looking to get back in the win column and hand me my first loss in the cage,” says Hill. “I’m excited to fight at home in Hamilton for the second time and I’m ready for a war with Wilson.”
