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.

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

Lampkin (5-0 1KO 135lbs.), who had been inactive for well over a year, appeared reserved and tight in the first round , not letting his hands go as quickly as he usually does, seemingly feeling out his opponent, trying to find his comfort zone. Maldonado (4-2 1KO 133 lbs.), who’s remained fairly active over the past year, worked well in that round, snapping a stiff jab in his opponent’s face, keeping him on the outside and at the end of his punches.
