Sandy Tsagouris to fight in Co-Main Event in Canada

(AUG 17) Lee Baxter Promotions and FITE are proud to announce that fight fans worldwide will be able to tune in to see the WBA-NABA welterweight title fight between Samuel Vargas and Ali Funeka.

“This is an international event, so it’s important that it’s not just the fans in Toronto who get to see it, but also Ali Funeka’s fans in South Africa, or Christian M’Billi’s fans in France,” said Baxter. “There’s a reason FITE is becoming the place to go for combat sports. Technology is evolving, not everybody has cable, but everyone has a phone and a computer. We’re making this card as accessible to the public as possible.”

In the co-feature, WIBA super featherweight champion Sandy Tsagouris will make her first title defense on home soil in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, against Simone Da Silva Duarte of Brazil. Both Tsagouris and Duarte have developed reputations as being among the most exciting action fighters in women’s boxing. Tsagouris became the first Toronto-born fighter to ever win a world title in Toronto when she defeated Carla Torres in March.

Vargas has been on boxing’s biggest stage against superstars Errol Spence Jr. and Danny Garcia, and he’s determined to prove that he still belongs there.

The 28-year-old Vargas (27-3-1, 14 KOs) steps up in one of the most significant fights of his career, August 19, as he defends his NABA title against three-time world title challenger Funeka (39-6-3, 31 KOs) in the main event of Lee Baxter Promotions’ (LBP) second event at the Brampton Powerade Centre, “Face Off”, in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.

Funeka has been a fighting contender his entire career, going on the road and battling some of the sport’s top stars. Last year, he upset previously undefeated Russian prospect Viskhan Murzabekov in his opponent’s homeland. More recently, the dangerous South African veteran fought a bloody battle with Jeff Horn, who recently upset future Hall-of-Famer Manny Pacquiao.

Vargas-Funeka is inarguably one of the highest-level bouts to be staged in Toronto in several years.
Fans in France will also get a chance to see former Olympic standout Christian M’Billi, as he battles Genaro Quiroga in light middleweight action.

The 22-year old was one of the true standouts of the Olympic boxing tournament in Rio, only falling to eventual gold medalist Arlen Lopez in what was perhaps the most exciting bout in any bracket. Already 4-0 as a professional, M’Billi has never done anything but impress in his boxing career, and fans across the world should expect no less this time around either.

Commentary for the event will be provided by lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, as well as SHOWTIME host and veteran broadcaster Corey Erdman.

 Fans will be able to purchase the event for just $14.99 on FITE.tv, and the groundbreaking FITE app, which allows viewers to stream the fights right from their phone to the television in their living room.
