The historic South Broadway Athletic Club hosts a great card this Saturday April 6th, headlined by three major bouts.
The MMWA Heavyweight Championship will be on the line when Big Dave Osborne makes his first defense against Gary Jackson in a rematch of their bout on February 16th.
Even though Osborne won with his own skill and no underhanded tactics, he still must prove that he’s not a fluke. Jackson is in an uncomfortable place as well; he’s not a champion.
Jackson’s leg injury is almost entirely healed now too. The “Gorgeous One” must dodge Big Dave’s attacks to his right leg. The match may depend on it.
Last month, it was “Pick Your Poison” for Junior Heavyweight Champion Brandon Espinosa and A.J. Williams. Each man would choose the other’s opponent. Espinosa demolished J-mal Swag, a debutant and protege of Williams’.
A.J. Williams defeated his opponent, a masked man named “Arachnia,” with a superkick. However, Arachnia attacked Williams with a chair and revealed himself to be none other than Espy himself.
Brandon Espinosa dared acting Commissioner Tim Miller to suspend him. Miller declined but made a match between the two for this Saturday for the junior heavy crown. When Espy complained, Miller added that if Brandon doesn’t defend the title, he will be stripped of it.
Phil E. Blunt and Brian James will take on Jimmy D and The Big Texan on April 6th as well. The Big Texan interfered multiple times to help Jimmy D steal a victory and retain his TV Championship last month against Blunt. The tag match was made after Brian James saved Phil E. from a beat-down.
Not much is known of Blunt and James’ relationship. However, Jimmy D and Texan have worked together before and are the likely favorites.
