James Stillerman – Jason “Big Six” Estrada (19-4, 5KOs) faces off against Galen “Bad Boy” Brown (38-20-1, 23KOs) in an eight round heavyweight main event bout, presented by Big Six Promotions, on the “Big Things” on November 10th at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

“Training has been really good for this fight. I took three days off after my last fight with Gonzales and then I got right back in the gym and have not left since,” said 31 year old, Estrada. I`m ready for this fight and I hope to knock him out by the second or third round.”

Estrada`s last three wins came against Alex Gonzales by unanimous decision, Dominique Alexander by a second round technical knockout and a unanimous decision over Joseph Rabotte.

“I take the fights one at a time, so right now I`m only focused on Brown and no one else,” said Estrada. “After I defeat Brown, then we`ll get ready for an important 2013 where I`m ready for a break out year since I`m finally healthy, I`m a better fighter now than before because I`m smarter and more patient in the ring and I`m extremely hungry to catapult myself into the top ten of the heavyweight division and maybe a potential world title fight at the end of next year.”
