Montreal, Canada, May 1st 2017Jimmy Spicuzza (7-4-0) will return to TKO on June 16th at TKO39: ULTIMATUM in a weight class that is more suitable for him in a co-main event that has “Fight of the night” written all over it. The Las Vegas based athlete will go head to head with TKO top prospect T.J. Laramie (5-2-0) who’s coming off a very controversial loss to Alex Morgan. TKO has tried very hard to set-up an immediate rematch between Laramie and Morgan but Morgan declined to fight on the June card, a decision that went very unpopular with the Laramie camp: “Morgan is avoiding me, no problem – he knows exactly what would happen in a rematch. My focus is now 100% on Jimmy Spicuzza

TKO39 will be live from St-Roch de l’Achigan, Quebec, Canada, 20 minutes north of Montreal at Complexe JC Perreault on June 16th 2017 and will feature tournaments in the woman 115 pound division, and in the men’s welterweight and heavyweight divisions. Both the prelims and the main card will be televised live on UFC FIGHT PASS worldwide and from coast to coast in Canada on the FIGHT NETWORK. Replays will then be available in French on RDS2. Tickets go on sale on April 10th 2017.
