Shupe and Kozorosky Headline a Hard Hitting Night of Fighting at PA Cage Fight 25
Jake Kozorosky at 6-0 will be defending his PA Cage Fight Lightweight championship and putting his undefeated 6-0 record on the line when he faces a talented fighter in Eddie “Shuperman” Shupe. Jake defeated Brandon Dolan in round 2 by rear naked choke to win PA cage fight amateur lightweight title this past March.
Jake’s since winning his first 4 bouts by decision he has finished his last 2 opponents by submission via rear naked choke. It appears Jake is honing his skills as he prepares to make the transition to the professional ranks. He is ranked the top amateur lightweight in Pennsylvania (out of 105) and ranked 3rd out of 516 lightweight prospects in the entire Northeast.
His opponent Edward Shupe has a 6-6 record, however he is riding a 2 fight win streak. This will be his 4th fight in 2016 and he 3-1 so far this year, with his only loss to an undefeated Jonathan Cruz.
Both fighters have gone the distance a combined 10 times over 18 bouts. These fighters are technically skilled. Don’t expect this fight to end with a quick KO. Shupe is the more experienced fighter, however, Kozorosky is a very tough opponent who currently holds the title that Shupe is seeking. With a strong win Jake Kozorosky could be headed to the pros with the potential for a quick assent in the lightweight division. If you like to watch 2 fighters with solid technical skills this has the makings for a great bout.
