Hard Knocks Fighting Championship Canadian Announces HK44 Fight Card

Toronto – HK44 fight event broadcasts live from Calgary on the Fight Network, Claro Sports, Time Warner Cable and Comcast on Friday, June 26 at 11 PM EST / 9 PM MST /  8 PM PST. Tickets for the live event are available at www.hkfc.tv.


“This card has some big fights and big fighters,” said Ari Taub, CEO of Hard Knocks Fighting Championship. “The marquee fight between Nick Ring and Cory Devela has a lot on the line and I have been looking forward to the light heavyweight match-up with Rodney Wallace and Kalib Starnes for months.”


The headlining main event features Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Nick “The Promise” Ring (13-3-0), against Strikeforce veteran Cory “The One” Devela (14-6-0). Nick Ring has a 3-3 record in UFC fights including a win against middleweight Riki Fukuda. Ring returns to the Hard Knocks cage having just fought in HK43 last month. Devela has won against renowned UFC fighter Joe Riggs. Devela has won eight fights by submission and seven in the first round. Ring will be a hometown favorite as he contends the proven grappler.


The co-main event is a light heavyweight matchup with former UFC and Bellator Fighting Championship fighter, Rodney “Sho Nuff The Master” Wallace (22-10-1) and UFC and World Series of Fighting fighter Kalib Starnes (16-9-1). Both fighters have gone the distance in their bouts many times and may be in for all three rounds in this match-up. Wallace recently lost to Misha Cirkunov in HK41 and Starnes recently lost in a Titan matchup against Dave Herman, making both fighters hungry for their next win.


The main card for HK44 broadcasts in Canada on The Fight Network (http://tv.fightnetwork.com) and in the U.S. on Comcast and Time Warner Cable (www.indemand.com). The full fight card is available exclusively on pay-per-view starting at 8:30 PM eastern time from Hard Knocks Fighting Championship at www.hkfc.tv and on iPhone/iPad and Android in the HKFC MMA app (goo.gl/H1k7jJ)
