Opportunities like this don’t come often for Big Jim Hoffarth. On Saturday, February 15 at the East Carondelet Community Center, the big man will try to break the hearts of Travis Cook and Classic Wrestling Champion, Ken Kasa.
Wouldn’t it be a shame; just after Valentine’s Day, too.
Formerly known as “The Big Texan,” Hoffarth hasn’t received a shot for the Classic Wrestling Championship since November 2012.
Hoffarth lost his mask against Gary Jackson in November. Since taking that loss in stride, he has defeated Max Archer, Alexandre Rudolph, and Joker (the last two in tag competition).
On the other side, “Ironman” Ken Kasa will make his eighth Classic Wrestling Championship defense when he steps into the ring on Saturday. Say what you will about his manager Travis Cook, but Cook knows how to keep the title in his own camp.
Also on the card, Ron Powers & Jake Dirden take on Ricky Cruz & Flash Flanagan; in singles action, the unpredictable Dave Vaughn meets Heath Hatton.
The bell time is 8 P.M.
