Montreal (Quebec) Canada, Thursday August 1st 2019 – It’s been over a year since top prospect FREDERIK DUPRAS (2-1-0, 2 SUB) has stepped into the cage. After a devastating KO loss to heavy hitter Johnny Baldridge, the Laval native had decided to go back to the drawing boards and he’s now ready to shine in a brand new weight class at featherweight where weight-cuts will be much easier for him. He will go head to head with TKO newcomer PAUL BLAIS FISHER (0-1-0) who despite his loss in his only professional bout, shows an excellent 4-1-0 record as an amateur. This one should be a barn burner between two young and willing young athletes!

TKO49 will also feature a title fight between undisputed flyweight champion MALCOLM GORDON (12-3-0) and super talented Japanese champion TAKASHI MATSUBA (11-3-1). This champion vs. champion clash will be a fight to be remembered for the flyweight division as two of the greatest athletes in the division square off with the TKO title on the line!
