Flash Flanagan has said that 2018 will be his last year in wrestling, and he wants one last run with SICW’s greatest prize. He gets that shot on Saturday, April 21 at the East Carondelet Community Center against champ Marc Houston.
The bout is “Ax Man” Houston’s first defense of the belt, and Flanagan’s first opportunity at it since last May.

Ricky Cruz returns to the ring after a 16 month retirement on Saturday, April 7 at St. James Catholic School in Millstadt, Ill.
Two weeks ago, Cruz threw in the towel to resign Keith Smith Jr.’s (his brother-in-law) match against Chris Hargas. The disrespect shown by Hargas and Travis Cook enraged Ricky, to the point he challenged “King Christopher” Hargas to a fight.
“It doesn’t even have to be a match; I just want you in the ring!”
The bout is made. Cruz is not expected to make a full-time return to wrestling after the match.
