Additionally, Daugherty said he’s expecting a big crowd at the fight.

“Our shows have been running from 300-500 people,” he said. “We’d like to have as many as we can. We’re trying to make the show grow.”

There will be two title fights Saturday night.

In the fly weight division, Cameron Page of Andalusia will face Jason Chapman of Crestview, Fla.

In the heavy weight division, which will be the main event of the night, Anthony Griggs, originally from Red Level who now lives in Montgomery, will fight Nakia Dennis of Mobile. Both are ranked in the top five in the state in amateur rankings.

The title fights’ divisions are based on the weight class of the fighters.
