  1. i hear anthony ruiz is already out and someone else is taking the fight.

  2. Patrick89 says:

    Tim Boetsch (6-1) is stepping in for the fight. His last fight was a loss to Vladimir Matyushenko in the IFL witch was the only tough opponent he fought that I know of. David Heath has lost his last 2 fights, but they were against tougher opponents so I say the fight is a toss up.

  3. dane drebin says:

  4. heath will take it but idc about this fight at all
