TKO Championship Fighting has announced a number of changes to their upcoming “Ultimatum” event, which will take place at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on February 28th.
Popular hockey enforcer Steve Bosse is now off of the card, citing that a lingering hand injury will prevent him from being able to compete at full power. Scott Wright, Bosse’s scheduled opponent, will now take on fellow heavyweight Ben Gallant.
Still with me?
Gallant was slated to go up against Jeff Lundberg in a bout that would see both fighters make their professional mixed martial arts debut against each other. Since that isn’t happening, Lundberg is currently not scheduled to participate at the event so it’s very likely that he will serve as an injury replacement and basically be a shoe-in for TKO’s next event in Aruba.
A lightweight affair between Tyler Jackson and Jeff Harrison has been added in order to round out the card. Harrison will be making his TKO debut at the event while this will be Jackson’s fifth fight under Stephane Patry and company. He has only won one of his four bouts in the promotion, dropping decisions to Sam Stout, Martin Grandmont, and Samuel Guillet while defeating Donald Ouimet due to injury.
Touch of gloves to our friends at TKO Xtreme for the heads-up.
