Fight Night in Cornwall
Tony “Lightning” Luis will put his Lightweight Championship title and five fight win streak on the line when he takes on Giovanni “Impacto” Straffon of Mexico in at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
The 10-round main event takes place Saturday, October 14th, 2017, with doors opening at 6:30PM.
Luis (24-3 8KO’s), now ranked 12th in the world by the World Boxing Association, won the title back in June with a dominant victory over previously undefeated Cam O’Connell (15-0 10KO’s). A win against Straffon(14-2-1 9KO’s), a powerful and talented young boxer with only two defeats in his seven-years as a pro, will elevate Luis’s ranking even higher, and place him one step closer to challenging for a World Title.
Teslenko (10-0 8KO’s), born and raised in Chernivtsi, Ukraine (now living in Toronto), was a highly decorated amateur standout with 250 bouts to his credit, winning 224 of them. Regarded by many boxing experts as “the next big thing in boxing”, Teslenko’s ring generalship, speed and power create fireworks in the ring.
The Saturday night show will also feature an array of talent on the undercard, with unbeaten Heavyweight Sensation Oleksandr Teslenko in a co-feature bout, undefeated Akwesasne native Ronnie “Rocket” Robidoux (4-0 2KO’s) looking to keep his perfect professional record intact in a 4-round Middleweight bout and fan favourite Daniel “El Pantera” Andujo of California in a 4-round Super Flyweight contest.
Christmas spirit is alive and well in Cornwall and the Counties as Upper Canada Village's Alight at Night and The Alexandria Festival of Lights prepare to light up the region with their spectacular displays of Christmas lights.
One of the most fascinating displays of culture occurs at the Akwesasne International Powwow. On September 6 - 7, celebrate the traditions of the First Nation people.
