THE HARDER THEY FALL
NOWALK-EVANOCHKO II HEAVYWEIGHTS
The 14th installment of the CLASH@THE CASCADES series will feature two City Title Fights as well as three eliminators. Also on the card will be a Tyke Fight (8-10 yrs) and some juniors.
The Main Event will be a rematch between Nate Nowalk and Ritchie Evanochko, this time for a City Title Belt. At 6’6” “Big” Nate Nowalk will tip the scales at about 265lb. Nowalk will be taking the first guy to defeat him. The two crossed paths last March and in a very tough and exciting fight, Evanochko won the decision.
Since then Nate lost a close fight against Adam Braidwood with a split decision loss. Evanochko and Nowalk have had some bad blood between them when Nowalk started taunting Evanochko on Facebook for a rematch after the first fight. Evanochko was committed to a kickboxing fight and was unavailable to accommodate Nowalk.
Evanochko did offer Big Nate a rematch on the pavement however this did not happen. Ritchie is back with his old club of Port Kells and is in great shape and very motivated. Evanochko is expected to be about 225lb for the rematch, about 8lbs less than he was in Nowalk-Evanochko 1.
Nowalk had a great outing against Braidwood who many fans thought would easily walk through Nowalk. It was a close fight and was judged for Braidwood on a split decision. Nowalk who boxes with P.O.W.D. went 4 tough rounds with Braidwood and has gone the full 4 rounds. Evanochko has only gone 3 rounds.
The heavyweights are always interesting to all fans, locally there seems to be an influx of Heavyweights. Although at press time it was not confirmed a solid heavyweight contest will see Nic Stevenson 225 of Sunshine Coast take on Ryan Dallas 210 of Action Boxing. This is a sleeper and has all the potential of fight of the night.
The Semi-Main event will see Narinder Alaki take on Kylic Taylor in a Super Middleweight City Title fight. Taylor boxing out of Ocean Park Boxing is from Alberta and is unknown in this area. Akila joins club mate Evanochko as Port Kells makes a double play for two titles. If Port Kells wins both titles they will be the first club within the Combsport system to hold two titles at one time. Akali is coming off a tough win over Jordan McLellan of Madkatz a Kelowna.
A Cruiserweight Eliminator will feature Aman Aujla of Bisla taking on Joe Doyle of Action Boxing. Another interesting eliminator will be Darcie Nestor of Chilliwack Boxing taking on Jillian Sask of Port Kells. The winner will advance to fight for a City Title. The show will also feature Jordan Leland-Weaver an 18 year old out of the host club City Boxing. Leland-Weaver will be taking on Jamie Chadwick in a middleweight fight.
No less than 10 fights are likely on the show with a tag name of “The Harder They Fall” Named after the 1955 boxing movie that many say was the best boxing movie ever. The fights are at the Coast Convention center in the same building as the Cascades Casino. Jan 20 doors at 7:00.
