MCC announces annual Thanksgiving Throw Down, two title fights
The Midwest’s most exciting promotion is in full swing, gearing up for its annual event, and in 2014 MCC aims to please! Announced earlier today, MCC 56: Thanksgiving Throw Down will feature light heavyweight champion, Rob “The Destroyer” Morrow in his first title defense when he meets Des Moines native, Rakim Cleveland. Meanwhile, featherweight kingpin, Eric Howser will face off against Jordan “Country Boy” Neer in the co-main event of the evening.
“Both of these fights have fireworks written all over them,” stated MCC’s matchmaker, John Halverson. “Rakim (Cleveland) punched his ticket when making quick work of Louis DeWerdt at MCC 54, and Morrow has been chomping at the bit to fight tough competition. He’s asking for the best guys so we are going to put someone in front of him that will push the pace. Then you have Howser and Jordan Neer; a fight that people have been wanting to see for a long time. I don’t think either of these guys are a fan of one another, and I have a feeling this fight may be personal. And that’s fine.”
With twelve action packed fights on the card, the annual event, which typically boasts the greatest attendance, I sure to be a not-miss show.
Halverson continued, “This is the one event where fighters actually call me to get booked on, so we are in the process of narrowing the card to showcase not only veteran fighters who’ve earned our respect, but also the up and coming fighters who people need to know about. It’s going to be a great show.”
