Three Lions Promotions is excited to announce the debuts of amateur boxing standout Carolyn Redmond and once-defeated MMA veteran Pat Pytlik on the already stacked “Se7en” show on September 7 at the Hamilton Convention Centre.
The card will be headlined by Bradley Wilcox (8-0-0, 4KOs) and Mohammed Abedeen (10-1-1, 3KOs) in a ten round, NABA Canadian lightweight title fight.
Like so many promising boxers of late, Carolyn Redmond fights out of the TNT Boxing Academy in Guelph. She made her amateur debut in 2014, winning the Open Ontario Provincial Championship the following year, after just fourteen fights.
With 75 amateur fights and multiple provincial crowns to her credit, Redmond is determined to have the same success in the punch-for-pay ranks, beginning with her debut on September 7.
“The pro game and longer bouts will be ideal for her,” said coach Stevie Bailey. “Carolyn has done many 10 round sparring sessions with world-class pros from across Canada, including world champions. The long game suits her style much more than that fast paced three rounders of amateur boxing.”
Kitchener’s Pat Pytlik is no stranger to the fight game. After fighting in pro Muay Thai in Thailand, Pytlik took his talents to MMA, amassing an impressive 7-1-0 record.
A talented striker, Pytlik scored stoppages in all seven of his MMA victories, including last year’s TKO5 over Vyron Phillips to win the Unified MMA Welterweight Championship. Now Pytlik leaves the cage for the ring, eager to excel in an impressive third professional combat sport.
In the co-main event, Ryan “The Bruiser” Rozicki (10-0-0, 10KOs) defends his NABA Canadian Cruiserweight Championship against former Olympian, turned MMA and boxing standout Khetag Pliev (5-0-0, 2KOs) of Russia.
The undercard is rounded out by Hamiltonians Kevin Higson and Jessie Wilcox, as well as Niagara Falls prospect Marko Szalai and the pro debut of former Team Canada member Aaron Huggins.
