Ace Hawkins must use speed to avoid Barackus and dangerous clawhold, Feb. 11

20170211 MMWA

Barackus is set to make his first defense of the Missouri State Title on Saturday, February 11 at the South Broadway Athletic Club.  The bout against Ace Hawkins is part of the MMWA Championship Series, an endeavor to crown a heavyweight king.

Plus:

“We must have a champion!”  That’s the verdict from Jim Harris as it pertains to the newly-renamed MMWA Cruiserweight Championship, contested between rivals Varik Morgan (of Crystal City) and Deacon Cash (of Bellefontaine).

The two will go at it in a “Last Man Standing” match, where the only way to win is to incapacitate the opponent so he can’t make it his feet by the referee’s ten count.  Brutal…and decisive.
