“THE ROCK” TO WELCOME KORNBERGER TO TKO ON FEBRUARY 23

Montreal, Quebec (Canada), Saturday January 6th 2018 – The action in the TKO middleweight division was fast and furious in 2017 and it looks like 2018 will be no different.  In addition to the already announced and much anticipated Vallée-Gavrilovic rematch, TKO42 will see Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec’s Francis “The Rock” Charbonneau (4-2-0, 3 sub) take on Vancouver, BC’s Brendan Kornberger (8-3-0, 6 KO).

Charbonneau recently underwent surgery on a torn bicep he suffered just minutes into his last fight at TKO39 and aims to prove he is back and better than ever.  As for Kornberger, who will be making his TKO debut on that night, you can be sure he will be looking to make a statement for the entire middleweight division to see, especially reigning champion Marc-André Barriault.

TKO42 takes place on Friday, February 23; ticket information to be announced shortly.
