It’s the start to a big year for Mark Slater and Colosseum Combat. They host their 52nd event this weekend and the first event in Michigan is scheduled for next month as well. The B2 Fighting Series Fight Group kicks things off for the year Saturday in Kokomo with a big fight card set. The event touts five professional fights
The headliner puts two of the area’s top men against each other as Reggie Merriweather and Sean Fallon both return to Kokomo. Fallon has won eight of his last nine with five of those wins coming inside the Colosseum Combat cage. In his last fight he notched a decision win over Garrett Gross at Colosseum Combat 50. This will be Merriweather’s 30th professional fight. He has won back to back outings. Most recently he dominated Warren Stewart over three rounds for a decision win at Colosseum Combat 51.
The amateur card is shaped with eight fights. Highlighting that portion of the card is a few fights of note. Undefeated Nick Fox returns to the Colosseum Combat cage for the fourth consecutive time facing a tough challenger in Allen Miller. Miller has stepped up in big fights including a trip to Iowa for Pinnacle Combat. Miller has the edge in experience and Fox has been explosive thus far finishing fights. Isaiah Watkins returns to Kokomo to square off with Cole Trangenstein Allen in a key bout as well as Amber Blevins looking to make it two in a row as she meets Natalie Gage.
The weigh-ins are open to the public and will be held Friday night at One More Gym in Kokomo. Friday just happens to be promoter Mark Slater’s birthday so if you see him out and about make sure you tell him. The fights kick off Saturday night at the Kokomo Events and Conference Center.
