By FCF Staff
Undefeated lightweight (155 pounds) prospect Alex Ricci (4-0) of Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada will square off with road warrior Iraj “Cold Blooded” Hadin (6-3) of London, Ontario, Canada and featherweights (145 pounds) Will “Leon” Romero (7-3) of Brampton, Ontario, Canada and Jeff Harrison (5-4) of Ottawa, Ontario Canada will battle on The Score Fighting Series’ March 16 event at Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
With four victories, all by way of KO or TKO, in his first four professional starts, the 29-year-old Ricci is expected to face his toughest test to date in Hadin, a 30-year-old product of Adrenaline Training Center, which also serves as home to UFC stars Mark Hominick, Sam Stout and Chris Clements.
Ricci, a seasoned Muay Thai stylist, scored a memorable KO in his last start on October 14th, 2011, sending Tim Smith to the canvas with a head kick followed by a series of elbow strikes. To date, Ricci has not been pushed past the second round of a fight.
Hadin has emerged a credible force in the lightweight division, taking out two of Quebec’s top prospects in Samuel Guillet and Derek Gauthier, in his last two starts. Hadin scored a second round TKO (elbow strikes) on Guillet on November 13th, 2010 and earned a unanimous decision over Gauthier on April 9, 2011.
Both the 29-year-old Romero and the 30-year-old Harrison will put winning streaks on the line when they meet in the cage.
Harrison, who was a multi-time amateur Muay Thai champion before turning professional as a mixed martial artist, has won his last three contests and will be looking for vengeance in the matchup with Romero, a winner of his last two fights, after Romero battered and defeated Harrison’s teammate, Stephane Bernadel, in The Score Fighting Series’ last event in Hamilton on Oct. 14, 2011.
