The Pacific Northwest’s top cruiserweight prospect “Irish” Mike Wilson will make his long awaited return to the ring in his hometown of Medford, Oregon Saturday, April 11th at the Jackson County Expo. Fighting under the promotional banner of his wife Jennifer Wilson’s newly formed company WhiteDelight Promotions, Wilson will headline a stacked seven bout fight card filled with regional talent in intriguing match-ups. The show will mark the first professional fight card in the Medford Area in over thirty years.

In the eight round main event, the undefeated Wilson will take on fellow unbeaten prospect Derek “Pretty Boy” Williams of Kansas City.  Wilson will be looking to shake off nearly two years of rust when he steps in the ring, having been inactive since August of 2013.  In his last bout he scored an exciting six round unanimous decision victory over Mike Alderete in Canyonville, Oregon. The crafty and always exciting Wilson will look to add his eleventh professional win in front of his hometown fans.

He will certainly have his hands full against his heavy-handed opponent. (continue reading…)

Problems can always be expected when putting on a boxing show, but in this case both the main event and co-feature that had been originally planned fell apart and, with days left for the event to take place, the Halquist Productions team was left scrambling to pull together an acceptable main event. I

t came down to the wire, but on Wednesday night they pulled it together with what on paper looked like a very interesting match-up between a seasoned journeyman and an up and coming young prospect. In the ten round headline bout crafty once beaten prospect Louis Rose (11-1-1 3KO’s 168 lbs.) took on the highly experienced Dashon Johnson (15-16-3 5KO’s 167 lbs.). (continue reading…)
