Provincial Fighting Championships announces new main event and co-main event

London, Ontario – Provincial Fighting Championships (PFC) is proud to officially announce the new main event of their debut event on October 26th at The Western Fair Agriplex in London, Ontario. Due to an injury to Jason Dent, Frank “The Tank” Caraballo will now take on Chris “The Polish Hammer” Horodecki.

Caraballo (12-5-0), who hails from Cleveland, is an electric fighter known more recently for his KO power, but also has five submission wins on his record. The two time Bellator veteran has won seven of his last eight fights and is looking to spoil the homecoming for London native Horodecki. Horodecki is fighting for the first time in his hometown of London and he will want nothing more than to give his family and friends a fight they won’t soon forget.

In the co-main event, London’s own Jesse ‘The Ghost’ Gross will take on BJJ phenom Mike Karkula in a featherweight battle. Gross (8-3-0) has won his last two fights, with the latest against the much heralded Tristan Johnson in Halifax; Johnson’s hometown. With a crowd pleasing style, Gross will bring his high energy style to face the technically skilled Karkula (5-0-0) who’s five wins have all come by first round submission. The main questions leading into this fight are if Gross can weather the storm in the first round or if he can’t finish it early can Karkula handle the pace over fifteen minutes?

Also on the card is an exciting fight between two lightweight prospects as Adam Assenza takes on Kyle Prepolec in another fight destined to be a stand-up war. Both fighters have been featured regularly in Ontario and this is a fight that has been brewing for years. Also featured on the card are local fighters Shannon Ludlow, Joel Paquette, Randa Markos, Malcolm Gordon and some of the province’s best talent.

The complete card is as follows:

[150] Chris Horodecki (London, ON) vs. Frank Caraballo (Cleveland, OH)
[145] Jesse Gross (London, ON) vs. Mike Karkula (Toronto, ON)
[155] Kyle Prepolec (Windsor, ON) vs. Adam Assenza (Burlington, ON)
[130] Shannon Ludlow (London, ON) vs. Lynell House (Edmonton, AB)
[160] Joel Paquette (Goderich, ON) vs. Hector Garcia (Kalamazoo, MI)
[135] Malcolm Gordon (London, ON) vs. Lloyd Reyes (Burlington, ON)
[135] Ryan Thomson (London, ON) vs. Darryl Marin (Kitchener, ON))
