Kalajdzic locks horns with Domingos this weekend

Matt Yanofsky 07/10/2015

Rising light heavyweight Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic faces his toughest test to date when he meets cement-fisted Gilberto “El Magico” Domingos Saturday, October 10 in the main event of Mad Integrity Fight Sports’ “Bombs Away 4” at the Florida Orange Event Center in Lakeland.

Tickets to “Bombs Away 4” are $30 for general admission and $60 for VIP. They are available now at Madbombsaway4.bpt.me or by visiting Atomic Tattoos in Lakeland and Bulldog Boxing & Fitness in Tampa. All VIP ticket holders 21 years and older will receive free beer from Brew Hub. Doors open at 6:30 pm with the opening bell scheduled for 7.

Prior to the main event, American Idol finalist Jeremy Rosado will sing the national anthem. Mad Integrity Fight Sports is also hosting a special birthday and victory celebration for junior middleweight contender “Silky” Wilky Campfort, who knocked out Ronald Montes in two rounds September 18 on Bounce TV.

Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Domingos will trek more than 4,000 miles to face Kalajdzic. The 29-year-old has an excellent 23-3 professional ledger with 21 of his victories coming by knockout. A fighter at heart, Domingos competed between light heavyweight and heavyweight, traveling thousands of miles to challenge unbeaten Arnold Gjergjaj and world rated “Bronco” Billy Wright.

Residing in St. Petersburg, FL, Kalajdzic emigrated from Bosnia in 1998. He’s a perfect 19-0 with 12 wins by knockout and outpointed well regarded Lionell Thompson last year in what was his biggest win to date. Having recently signed with promoter Lou DiBella, Kalajdzic’s aiming to dominate but will have to fight smart against his heavy handed foe.

“Domingos has an impressive record and is a vicious puncher,” said Joey Orduna of Mad Integrity Fight Sports. “He’s fought as a heavyweight and knocked out multiple fighters up there. Hot Rod is looking to prove that he’s amongst the best young fighters out there and the fans will be in for a treat with this exciting match up on Saturday evening.”

The Kalajdzic-Domingos fight is scheduled for eight rounds and will take place at a catch weight of 185 lbs.

Undefeated junior middleweight Armando “The Gentleman” Alvarez of Miami looks to go 8-0 when he meets Jacksonville’s Juan Aguirre for Sunshine State bragging rights in a six rounder.

In four round undercard bouts, former football star Leanthony ‘Tyga” Fleming of Lakeland faces Louisiana’s Randy Heddrick FL’s, Michael Guillen fights Curtis Vert, Joseph White challenges Roger Streeter, Wytama Faulk tests his talents against Clark Brightwell, Alexander Charneco squares off versus Leonardo Kenon and Brian Meadows battles Raynard Younger.
