With Affliction’s third show yet to be finalized, lightweight competitor Chris Horodecki will keep active by competing on a regional show to be held at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi on June 27.
Sources close to Horodecki have revealed that the former IFL veteran is slated to compete against King of the Cage veteran William Sriyapai at the event.
Horodecki, 12-1, signed a multi-fight agreement with Affliction late last year and had been slated to debut for the promotion against Dan Lauzon during “Day of Reckoning” on Jan. 24. However, Horodecki was unable to get licensed the week of the event after a physician working on behalf of the California State Athletic Commission determined that he had a neck injury.
Lauzon went on to submit last-minute replacement Bobby Green while Horodecki sat on the sidelines. His June fight vs. Sriyapai will be the first time he has competed since recording a unanimous decision victory over Nate Lamotte during the IFL’s April of 2008 event in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Nicknamed “The Bull,” Sriyapai last competed for the Gladiator Challenge promotion in February. Facing William Koogle, he needed just one minute and 13 seconds into the fight to record a TKO victory. The win brought Sriyapai’s overall record to 11-4 and allowed him to also improve to 8-1 in his last nine fights.
