Hard Knocks 39 takes place in Calgary, Alberta on Nov. 14 with special guest UFC’s Elias Theodorou

Press Release  – It is our mission here at Hard Knocks Fighting to provide you with a night of action packed entertainment you won’t soon forget. HK 38 proved to be another successful event and if you missed our talented roster of fighters there, have no fear because HK 39 is almost here! HK 39 is sure to be an event like no other, so call your friends and get your popcorn ready because you will not want to miss the title fight and co-main event we have booked for November 14th!

Two mixed martial artist titans are set to collide in the professional title match of HK 39. These two fighters are no strangers to the cage, in fact it is more like their second home. Fighting out of the Red Corner in an attempt to earn the welterweight title will be Sergej “El Dorado” Juskevic of Headrush. He is scheduled to enter the cage at HK 39 for the twenty-third time in his professional career with a record of 13-7-2! Juskevic brings a two fight winning streak into HK 39, submitting his previous two opponents in the first round. Of his 13 wins, nine of them have come by way of submission, three by KO/TKO, one decision and two draws.

Standing in the way of “El Dorado” and will be Joel Powell of Hamilton Muay Thai. He enters HK 39 with a 7-4-0 record. Powell is looking to rebound after a loss earlier this year at WSOF Canada when he was stunned in the first round by a front kick and punch that resulted in a KO. Out of Powell’s seven wins, three were by KO/TKO, two were by submissions and two were decisions in his favour.

The momentum in this one seems to be favouring Juskevic given his two fight winning streak. However, Powell has not lost two fights in a row since 2008, and the hometown crowd will certainly rally behind him. If history is any indicator, look for Juskevic to come out of the gates like a freight train in an attempt to takedown and submit Powell. If Powell can counter all of Juskevic’s submission attempts early on and stretches this one out, then the advantage should shift into his favour since he has a little more history taking fights the distance and earning a win by decision. Fights between two veterans looking to go out on top like this just don’t happen very often, so make plans to attend HK 39 in person or gather around a television somewhere and catch it on PPV!
