The next edition of the COMMANDO formula presented live on Punching Grace, featuring Steven Butler vs. Sadriddin Akhmedov, will take place one day earlier than initially planned.
This card will therefore take place on January 29 as of 7:30 p.m. Boxing fans will have to wait a day less before seeing the return of Steven "Bang Bang" Butler (28-2-1, 24 KOs) against Jose de Jesus Macias (27-10-3, 13 KOs). They will battle it out for the WBC Francophone, NABF and NABA middleweight titles.
Macias is a warrior from Mexico who is known to be a spoiler. Quebec boxing fans remember him as the last to defeat Francis Lafrenière (20-7-2, 11 KOs) and as the one who brought a hell of a fight to Mikael Zewski. (34-2-0, 23 KO).
“We made the decision to have our show one day early in order to allow boxing fans not to miss a second of the action and thus experience all the emotions generated by our Commando formula. In addition, Punching Grace subscribers will, for the first time, be able to choose between a French or English broadcast of our event,” says EOTTM President Camille Estephan.
Sadriddin Akhmedov (11-0, 10 KOs) will face his biggest career test against Stephen Danyo (17-3-3, 6 KOs) as the co-main event of the evening. The Eye of the Tiger Management team believes the time has come to increase the level of adversity of their young prodigy. Danyo is a very skilled and dangerous boxer. He is the current WBA Continental super welterweight champion and delivered quite a performance against Custio Clayton (18-0-1, 12 KOs).
Akhmedov will therefore have to offer a flawless performance to maintain his immaculate record and hope to bring back the WBA Continental, WBC Francophone and NABF titles to Quebec.
