Dan Czaszar

Heavyweights in Clash

Clash @ The Cascades 12 amateur boxing matches promoted by Langley City Boxing Club on November 4.

Clash @ The Cascades 12, the 12th installment of amateur boxing matches promoted by Langley City Boxing Club will take place on November 4.

The main event will feature a B.C. Light Heavyweight bout between City Boxing’s Dan Csaszar, 18, who will take on his toughest fight to date against Ty MacDougall, 28, of the Kamloops Boxing Academy.

Langley fans have not seen either fighter since Csaszar has only been able to fight in the USA, winning his last fight against the Pacific Northwest Middleweight Champion. Csaszar won the prestigious Tacoma Golden Gloves at the age of 17 and won best boxer honours as well. MacDougall, on the other hand, won the B.C. Golden Gloves a couple of years ago and received the B.C. Golden Boy award as B.C.’s outstanding boxer.

Both Csaszar and MacDougall have each fought about 40 times and share a winning percentage of about 90 per cent. This is an outstanding number in amateur boxing.

In what would be a main event in any show B.C. Welterweight Champion Jake Weitzel, 29, of Blue Corner Boxing in Mission will defend against Sharvin Soltani, 21, of Della Penna Boxing. Weitzel went down in weight earlier in the year and challenged Soltani for his Super Lightweight title. Weitzel won a split decision over Soltani, a former Silver medallist at the Canadian Nationals. Soltani secured his title shot with a win over Daniel Joseph, who was #1 contender to Weitzel’s title. Both title fights will be five-round affairs.

City Boxing’s Mat Andreatta, 17, will be in a rematch with Ibrahim Ibrahim, 17, of Della Pennas Boxing, in a three-round Super Lightweight fight. Andreatta, a Brookswood student, won a decision in the first match.

Gurp Buttar, 28, of Langley fights out of Ocean Park Boxing White Rock and will be in against George Vourtsis, 34, of Sunshine Coast Boxing in a Welterweight fight.

City Boxing’s Jordan Leland-Weaver, 18, will box in his first match and will be facing Jamie Chadwick, 19, of the Port Kells Boxing Club in a Middleweight match.

Port Kells will also have Inder Bhabba, 16, in a bout with Mission’s Brennan Patterson, 15, at the 140 lb. limit.

Also from Port Kells will be Russ Levarly, 18, who will take on Cole Beers, 17, of Kelowna’s Madkatz Boxing Club.

Two other bouts are on the schedule but both have no local component. The show will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Coast Convention Centre in downtown Langley; tickets will be at the door and can be had at customer services prior to the show.
