Ryan “Thunder” Rozicki VS”Sugar” Shane Upshaw
August 19th in Shediac, Newbrunswick. This matchup will be the best fight of the night and not the kind of fight where you can pick a favorite. This is going to be a war. Shane Upshaw of Halifax Nova Scotia is as tough as they come . He has a professional record of 1-1 and 4 has had all tough fights and his bouts have been on the road except for 2 being in Nova Scotia. Upshaw will be coming to collect a win.
The man standing in the opposite corner will be Ryan *Thunder * Rozicki. of Cape Breton NS. Ryan brings 2 professional wins to the table and those wins come in very fine fashion. Both of his professional bouts did not go the distance . Ryan brings a very good amateur background to the table and was a member of the national team before deciding to join the pro ranks. Ryan has been in with the best in the country and has held his own. He is looking to make his mark in professional boxing and there is no doubt he will do just that. This fight is scheduled for 6 rounds. As stated earlier will likely steal the show August 19 in Shediac New Brunswick.
