Philadelphia, PA—Away from the spotlight and the glamour and in a move as rare as a 15-round fight, area lightweight favorites Osnel Charles and Victor Vasquez will meet for the fourth time in less than six years when they square off Friday evening Oct. 14 at the 2300 Arena. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ON WHERE TO WATCH.

Topping the nine-fight card is an eight-round junior middleweight showdown between Tyrone Brunson, of North Philadelphia, and Ismael “Tito” Garcia, of Vineland, NJ.

Two additional eight-round matches feature world-rated junior lightweight Tevin Farmer, of North Philadelphia, vs. Orlando Rizo, of Managua, Nicaragua, and unbeaten junior welterweight prospect Mike Reed, of Baltimore, MD, vs. Jose Aaron Herrera, of Valladolid, Mexico.

In an era when fighters rarely fight each other more than once, especially in prelim fights, Charles and Vasquez eagerly await their fourth encounter.

Old-timers in Philadelphia may recall another local four-fight rivalry, also between lightweights.  That was the series between Roger Evans, of South Philadelphia, and Eddie “Flash” Tomlin, of North Philadelphia.   They boxed each other four times between 1967 and 1969 and, incredibly, all four fights (two 6-round fights, two 8-round fights) ended in draws.  You could look it up!

“I can’t really say anything negative about Victor,” said the 32-year-old Charles (right), who has won two of their previous three fights.  “He’s a barber and I’m a barber and he’s a family man and I’m a family man, but when we get together in the ring I’m a better fighter.

“Victor never should have beaten me the last time we fought (June 30, 2015).  We both love to fight so why not fight each other a fourth time just like back in the old days.  Some people don’t understand this kind of thinking but we both fight with our heart and we put everything on the line so let’s do it one more time.”

A pro since 2009, Charles is 10-15-1, 1 K0.  He currently works as a cook at the Cedar Food Market in Atlantic City.

Vasquez, 33, of North Philadelphia, had been doing well on his recent comeback before losing his last two bouts.  He cuts hair at Consider It Done in North Philadelphia.   A pro since 2006, Vasquez is 19-11-1, 9 K0s.

“It’s always a great fight when Charles and me get it on,” Vasquez said.  “We know each other’s moves so sometimes it’s like playing chess and we try to out-smart each other.  We both come to fight and the fans like that and if the fans like it then why shouldn’t we fight again?   I’m getting older now and I want to finish my career on a good note and fighting Charles a fourth time is a good way to start.”

Also on the Oct. 14 card is a pair of six-round lightweight contests featuring Anthony Burgin against Gerald Smith in an all-Philly showdown plus Steven Ortiz, of Philadelphia, against Daniel Tran, of Oklahoma City, OK.

In four-round bouts: junior middleweight Isaiah Wise, of Philadelphia, vs. James Robinson, of York, PA; middleweight Fred Jenkins, Jr., of Philadelphia, vs. Ibrihim Shabazz, of Newark, NJ; welterweight Hasan Young, of Philadelphia, vs. Kevin Womack, of Baltimore, MD.

Bradley Desir v Julian Lane Co-Main Event at Ring of Combat 56 – Watch on GFL.Tv

Ring of Combat 56 – Watch on GFL.tv CLICK HERE

A hotly anticipated matchup between current lightweight champ, Bradley Desir (8-5) and jiu-jitsu specialist, Max Bohanan (6-2) was one of the highlight bouts for ROC 56. Signed and ready to go, fight fans were going crazy for this bout but it was not meant to be as of yet. Unfortunate news came when Bohanan’s team informed ROC he would not be able to compete September 23 at ROC 56. Just like the fight fans, the ROC team was sad to hear of Bohanan being off the card as he has fought his entire career with Lou Neglia’s Ring of Combat and has become a positive face for the promotion.

Once ROC head honcho, Lou Neglia, received the news on Bohanan, he did what any other promoter would do, he picked up the phone and went to work immediately.

Enter fighter “z” or should we say, Julian “Night Train” Lane (11-5-1) as he battles Desir on short notice. Lane comes in on a two-fight win streak and made a name for himself as he was apart of the TUF 16 cast where he gave a quote only fight fans could love, “let me bang bro!” It was a request to his team to let him be next to compete or “bang.”

Julian will get his chance to “bang” when he takes on Desir. ROC fight fans always remember Desir as we last saw him at ROC 54 with a sensational TKO against ultra tough, Eddie Lenoci. Taking a fight of this caliber on such a short notice is a dangerous risk for anyone but a risk that needs to be taken.

Full Contact Contender (FCC) 17: Rob ‘C4’ Sinclair v Charlie Leary – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE!

MMAmania.com has rated this FCC match up as the top regional fight to watch this weekend and its live on GFL.Tv.

Rob ‘C4’ Sinclair (13-3) returns to the ring after a 15 month layoff as he challenges current FCC Lightweight Champion Charlie Leary (12-7) in what is guaranteed to be an explosive contest.

Sinclair has been absent from competition spanning back to June 2015. However, ‘C4’ brings a wealth of experience to the cage. The former BAMMA Lightweight Champion has faced a who’s who of UKMMA talent and was signed to Bellator before a string of horrendous injuries sidelined him. Sinclair thanked Leary for taking the fight, though he let Leary know that it was also a big mistake, stating, “I want to thank Charlie for taking the fight. He could of ducked it and maybe taken an easier fight!! Balls to the kid, he’s kept me out of retirement, he’s given me a fire to look to train, enjoy training.. I know what I’m capable of.. And I’ll be showing it come fight night, 24th September is a bad night for Charlie Leary!!

Reigning and defending FCC Lightweight Champion Charlie Leary is coming off an impressive title defense over Mick Bowman and is looking for his fifth straight win. Leary is understandably excited for this fight: “this is huge in my mind! Rob Sinclair has been the number one guy in Europe since I turned pro; and FCC are right up there as one of the top three promotions in the UK so having their title is a great achievement! But, defending it means everything to me and is a massive step in my career especially given my opponent!”

For UKMMA fans this contest is guaranteed to deliver as neither man will take a backwards step. Couple that with Sinclair’s desire to prove his time isn’t up while Leary wants to show it is his time now!

GFL.Tv is showcasing 10 promotions this weekend. Check out the action. Until next week, keep punchin’.
