One of the top fighters in the Pacific Northwest will look to keep his unbeaten record intact next Saturday, January 30th at the Jackson County Expo in Central Point, Oregon. Cruiserweight prospect Mike “White Delight” Wilson will take on experienced journeyman Adam “The Atom Bomb” Collins in the six round main event of White Delight Promotions’ packed seven bout “Rogue Valley Rumble 3″ card.

This will mark the third consecutive fight for Wilson in his hometown of Central Point. In his last two fights Wilson (12-0, 6 KOs) scored impressive knockouts, stopping previously unbeaten Derek Williams in the third round last April, and scoring a second round knockout over Juan Reyna three months later. A stand-out amateur who claimed the 2004 and 2005 United States National super heavyweight titles as well as the 2005 AIBA World Amateur super heavyweight championship, Wilson has gone unblemished in twelve professional fights, ending six of those bouts within the distance. The rangy boxer-puncher from Southern Oregon is proving to be a growing draw in the area, drawing larger attendance numbers with each fight. In his last outing, Wilson drew one of the largest crowds to any fight sporting event in the state in recent years. Wilson will look to continue his success when he takes on the gritty Collins.

Ironton, Ohio’s Adam Collins (13-11, 1 NC, 8 KOs) is an experienced fighter with twenty-five bouts under his belt and fights against some of today’s more well-known fighters. In 2011 Collins faced Badou Jack, who is now the current WBC super middleweight champion, losing in the first round, and in 2014 he took on world title challenger BJ Flores, losing via knockout in the first. Collins will look to test the less experienced Wilson in their scheduled six round bout.

Six fights are scheduled on the undercard, featuring fighters from all over the Pacific Northwest.

The semi-main event will feature a bout that has the makings of a great action fight between two experienced and well respected Oregon journeyman facing each other for a second time. Salem, Oregon’s Juan Jaramillo (9-12-2, 3 KOs) will take on Eugene, Oregon’s Corben Page (5-11-1) in a six round lightweight contest. The two fought last July, engaging in an exciting back and forth brawl that saw Jaramillo claim a hard-fought unanimous decision win. Both have not fought since their last encounter.

Crafty boxer Brandon Maddox (2-0, 1 KO), of Detroit, Michigan, will battle Lebanon, Oregon’s Samuel Cid in a four round middleweight fight. Maddox has fought both of his professional fights at the Jackson County Expo, stopping Daniel Wyatt in the first round last April, and in his last fight, winning a four round unanimous decision over Rafael Valencia in July.

Popular local brawler Randy Rogers (3-1, 2 KOs), of Klamath Falls, Oregon will fight Pendleton, Oregon’s Justin Milani (0-1) in a cruiserweight fight. Rogers, who recently returned to boxing after an eight year hiatus, last fought in July, scoring an exciting second round stoppage over Laquan Williams. Milani, meanwhile, has only had one professional boxing match, but is an experienced MMA fighter. In his lone foray into the paid boxing ranks, Milani lost in the fourth round by DQ to Dennis Hallman in a fight Milani was well on his way to winning. Milani was disqualified for excessively dropping his mouthpiece in that bout. The two cruiserweights will square off in a four round contest.

Once beaten Rafael Busuioe (1-1), of Sacramento, California will take on Mike Fernandez in a four round lightweight fight. Busuioe’s only loss came against unbeaten prospect Xavier Martinez last August. Fernandez will be making his pro debut.

Rounding out the undercard will be a four round middleweight fight between power-punchers Rafael Valencia (2-2, 2 KOs), of Medford, Oregon and Granger, Washington’s Antonio Neal (3-3, 3 KOs). Both fighters have claimed all of their wins inside the distance

White Delight Promotions’ “Rogue Valley Rumble 3″ will take place at the Jackson County Expo in Central Point, Oregon on Saturday, January 30th. The event will start at 7pm, with doors set to open at 6pm. Tickets to the card are priced at $20 for general admission.
