Heavyweights featured in ‘Clash 10’

The tenth installment of the "Clash @ the Cascade" Amateur Boxing series will feature a City Heavyweight title fight when two very big guys go for the title to see who is the toughest guy in the lower mainland.

The tenth installment of the “Clash @ the Cascade” Amateur Boxing series will feature a City Heavyweight title fight when two very big guys go for the title to see who is the toughest guy in the lower mainland.

The four-round bout, sanctioned by The British Columbia Combative Sports Association, will settle this issue this Friday.

“Big” Nate Nowalk is 6’6” and tips the scales at 274 lbs. and is the #1 ranked heavyweight in B.C. He is going to face Adam Braidwood, a former Edmonton Eskimo. Braidwood stands 6’5” and will tip the scales at about 255 lbs. Both have fought three times and have winning records.

The card will feature boxers from all over B.C. and will include Langley’s Mat Andreatta, who will face what may be the most experienced opponent that he has boxed to date. Andreatta, a student at Brookswood High School, will face Nikko Ippolito from Kamloops. Ippolito has fought more fights than Andreatta but has fought in the computer boxing system and will be measured by the 20-point must system on the Clash 10 card.

Ippolito has faced Canadian Champions and is a rising star in the amateur boxing world. Andreatta has only lost one fight and this was a close fight against Nestor Garcia, an American that Andreatta fought in Seattle last spring.

Gurpreet Buttar, a Langley resident who was part of the Langley’s City Boxing Club, will be on the card. He now fights out of Ocean City Boxing, a club based in White Rock. Buttar will face Daniel Joseph of Richmond’s POWD Boxing Club.

There are nine fights set for the card, says Dave Allison, City Boxing Club manager.

“We will have a very promising card with the deepest talent pool to date; there also may be a surprise semi main event.”

Fights start at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 12 and take place at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in downtown Langley. Tickets are available at the door or at customer services at 604-530-2211; other information at 604-530-7897.
