Fight Week for FPC Management client Jesse Brock for MFC 40
The Maximum Fighting Championship has sourced out a strong replacement to fill an injury void that has caused a change to the MFC 40: Crowned Kings lineup.
Due to a significant injury suffered in training, reigning MFC bantamweight champ Anthony Birchak is unable to fight on Friday, May 9 on the AXS TV Fights card emanating from the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. With Birchak out, “The Hard-Hitting Hillbilly” Kevin Croom (14-4) will now battle Jesse Brock (16-8) in a three-round title eliminator. Brock has been signed to a multi-fight contract.
“While other organizations would panic, canceling fights or moving their show date completely, the Maximum Fighting Championship staff just works hard like always and fixes things in the best way possible,” said MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich.
“In a strange turn of events, it was Jesse Brock who’d been calling out Anthony Birchak for quite some time. Now Brock will get a chance to be the next in line to challenge for Birchak’s belt.”
Brock, who fights out of Boise, Idaho, has finished 10 of his opponents with three knockouts and seven submissions, and he has squared off against a handful of notable opponents including Tyson Nam, Caol Uno, Demetrius Johnson, and Donald Cerrone.
