SUN Sports & Entertainment Inc. recently announced the signing of International Fighting Association heavyweight champion Pedro Rizzo to an exclusive three-fight contract extension.
Rizzo (16-7) has fought twice already for SUN’s Art of War promotion. No future date or opponent has been announced for his next defense, but when it does take place, SUN stated that it would happen on pay-per-view with strategic partners that the company has been in discussion with.
SUN CEO CJ Comu stated, “(Rizzo) is one of the best stand up fighters in the world and he is willing to take on anyone that wants to enter the cage to prove it. He has dominated several UFC and PRIDE stars. He knocked out Josh Barnett, he knocked out Andrei Arvloski, he beat Mark Coleman, Ricco Rodriguez, Tra Telligman, Justin Eilers, Dan Severn and recently KO’d Jeff ‘the Snowman’ Monson in the third round of a title fight.
“At this point, we’d put him up against the best fighters in the world because Pedro Rizzo is back and he’s going to keep knocking them out.”
