Peterborough, ON – On May 5, CCC Promotions returns to the Peterborough Memorial Centre, as two of Canada’s top Welterweights duke it out at “Homecoming III: Mayhem at Memorial.”
CPBC International Super-Welterweight Champion and Peterborough loyalist, Cody ‘The Crippler’ Crowley, will return home from his training camp in Las Vegas to take on Hamilton-based up-and-comer Kevin Higson.
Higson, WBA-NABA Canada Super Welterweight Champion, is Crowley’s toughest competitor yet, winning 12 of his 14 professional fights by going the full distance. Higson, who is on a 5 fight win streak, has notable wins over fellow Canadian contenders Phil Rose, Ryan Young and Junmar Emon.
In this epic main event, Peterborough favourite and top seed Cody Crowley, looks to defend his CPBC title on home turf. In addition to putting his title in line, The Crippler will be fighting for the vacant CPBC Canadian title which will let the world know who is the best one 154 pounder in Canada.
Crowley is a dominating force in the Canadian boxing scene and is determined to earn his way to the top, by only taking on qualified opponents to get there. The fighter is gradually reaching the pinnacle of his craft, with the help of elite-level coaching staff and training partners.
When Cody is not in training camp preparing for his own bouts, he is sparring with the likes of world champion and boxing megastar Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. to help them prepare for theirs.
In the main event of Homecoming II, CCC’s last event held on September 30th of 2017, Crowley finished off Jamaican journeyman Richard Holmes with a relentless assault. The challenger Holmes quit after a receiving a barrage of blows and essentially being forced to go into survival mode. To the dismay of many in attendance, Holmes refused to continue to fight after being put down twice by body shots.
Crowley’s longtime manager and trainer, Ibn Cason, wants to make things right for Peterborough fight fans this time around.
Cason, who expressed his unfavourable opinion of Holmes’ early exit, promised to ensure Crowley’s next opponent be a credible fighter known to be tough and resilient. CCC Promotions’ has found that eligible contender in Higson, who has earned his spot as of one Canada’s top prospects.
“I want somebody who is going to give Cody a couple of different looks and who is actually going to come to fight and not go into survival mode,” Cason told The Peterborough Examiner after the last show.
“I’ve seen these fighters fight before and they’ll fight but, for some reason, when they fight Cody it seems like they just want to survive. That may be because of Cody, I don’t know, because I don’t know what it feels like to be punched by him and to have relentless pressure on him with no break. Most people can’t keep the pace Cody keeps.”
For Southern Ontario fight fans, this is an East vs. West war that they will not want to miss.
