Weights: Steve Claggett 139.5, Julio Mendoza 138.5

Calgary, AB - Professional Boxing is set to return to Calgary, Alberta on Friday night when Teofista Boxing will present a dynamite double header featuring two of Canada's fast rising prospects.

Calgary's Steve Claggett (10-0-1, 7 KOs) tipped the scales at 139.5 pounds ahead of his headlining bout against unbeaten Mexican Jose Julio Mendoza (7-0, 3 KOs), who weighed in at a ripped 138.5 pounds. The 140 pound bout will be contested for the prestigious WBC light welterweight Youth Intercontinental Title in the headlining bout.

In the co-main event big punching Canadian middleweight and super middleweight champion Adam 'A-Bomb' Trupish (7-0, 4 KOs) checked in at 164.5 pounds at Thursday's weigh in. Trupish will return to action in Friday's co-main event against Montana's Matt Palmer (2-2, 0 KOs), who tipped the scales at 167.5 pounds.

The card will also feature two clubbing heavyweight tilts with Sheldon 'Prime Time' Hinton (11-6-1, 4 KOs) taking on Ken Frank (3-1-1, 2 KOs) in a Canadian heavyweight title eliminator, and heavy handed Jarred KilKenny (2-0, 1 KO) facing off against Winnipeg's Chad Thrun (0-2).

Rounding out the card will be former Alberta amateur standout Brad Soanes making his pro debut against game fellow newcomer Max Gagne.
The evening will kickoff with an exciting showcase of amateur boxing to warm up the local fans in attendance which will be highlighted by 2010 Alberta Provincial Champions Norman Bradford and Devin Reti facing off in an attractive matchup.

The pro bouts will be sanctioned by the Calgary Combative Sports Commission with Alberta Boxing sanctioning the preliminary amateur bouts. 

The exciting evening of sports entertainment will include live music and dancing and will take place in down town Calgary at the Chinese Cultural Centre, located at 197 1st Street SW with ample parking available.
