Press Release by Ben Fowlkes for IFL.tv
Early indications are that the Anacondas’ ever-improving heavyweight, Krzysztof Soszynski, is off the card for his squad’s matchup with the defending champ Silverbacks on February 2nd.
Many had hoped this would be an exciting rematch between Soszynski and Silverbacks heavyweight Ben Rothwell, after Rothwell TKO’d Soszynski in their first meeting last year.
But word is that an injury suffered in training has sidelined Soszynski for now, which means fans will have to wait to see just how much the Polish-born fighter has improved since his first bout with Big Ben. All Soszynski’s teammates can talk about is his rapid development, but maybe he still isn’t quite ready for a juggernaut like Rothwell.
In his place will be local Houston fighter Matt Thompson (3-1). Obviously, the smart money has to be on Rothwell against a much less-experienced fighter, but Thompson will have the hometown crowd behind him.
