April has three events in three weeks for AXS with the first taking place this weekend as Jesse Bazzi faces CJ Hamilton. LFA 8 takes place April 7th at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, SC with a main card broadcast on AXS TV.
At 10-4 as a pro CJ Hamilton has the experience advantage over 6-1 Jesse Bazzi. Hamilton has been tearing up the independent scene with his five-fight win streak including victories in LFC, Titan FC, and Valor Fights with his most recent win being a TKO of Cory Alexander for the Valor title in December. Bazzi makes his national-level show debut with his only loss being to Malcolm Gordon last August while his two victories since then came against Timothy Sosa and Jared Scoggins.
The co-main event is a clash of Bellator vets as Jeremie Holloway fights Dave Vitkay. 18-12-1 Vitkay had some setbacks to his career such as back-to-back KO losses in December 2011 and March 2012 but since those losses he has gone on an eight-fight win streak. Vitkay wasn’t really going anywhere in Bellator despite going 3-0 in that organization however Vitkay seems to have found a home in LFA where he won his last three fights. Now coming back almost a year to the day since his win over Cody Wilson Vitkay enters this bout as the promotional vet. Holloway may also be a Bellator vet but he went 0-2 with losses to Matt Secor and Michael Page. Holloway’s most recent fight was in January, a unanimous decision over Mike Jackson in regional promotion Xtreme Knockout.
