Dylan Rushton hungry for Marsh rematch tonight in Oshawa; Phil Rose returns to boxing

On Friday, November 1, 2019, the Classic Boxing Company presents the return of Dylan “Destruction” Rushton (1-3-1) of Hamilton, Ontario, in a four-round, super-lightweight rematch with Kyle Marsh (0-3-0) of Peterborough, Ontario, at the Children’s Arena in Oshawa. Rushton made his professional debut against March back in 2016, earning a unanimous decision victory over his cross-province rival in Hamilton. Marsh hasn’t fought since and will no doubt be out for redemption.

Rushton also has something to prove. After suffering two consecutive defeats, he’s eager to win, and win decisively.

“I haven’t trained this hard for any of my fights,” explained Rushton. “I’ve had a long camp and I have a point to prove to my fans with this fight. Everyone watching is going to see I’m a completely different fighter than I was in my last 2 performances.”

Although all fighters look to rebuild and improve after a loss, Rushton fights proven domestic opposition, routinely testing himself in intriguing all-Canadian showdowns. Chann Thonson (5-0-0, 3KOs), who stopped Rushton in Toronto, is still undefeated as a pro. Cody Kelly (3-2-2) owns a decision over Rushton, but Kelly has only one clean loss on his entire resume, the rest being splits and majorities. Although Rushton’s fans appreciate the dangers that come with top competition, the fighter himself – ever looking to improve – is keen to show improvement.

“After this fight, Kyle Marsh will regret taking a rematch,” said Rushton. “I’m coming for war.”

Rushton-Marsh is part of the undercard for the return of unified Canadian super lightweight champion Steve Wilcox (21-3-1, 5KOs) of Hamilton, Ontario, against Gustavo Torres (9-7-1, 4KOs) of Mexico. Other undercard fights include the return of amateur national champion and Oshawa favourite Evan Gillard (3-0-0, 1KOs) against once-defeated Brandon Gallardo (3-1-0, 1KOs) of Ciudad Neza, Mexico, in a light-flyweight six rounder; an all-Ontario, super-welterweight clash between Thad Ridsdill (2-1-0, 1KOs) of Oshawa and Mikhail Miller (2-4-1) of Toronto; Hamilton featherweight Kylie Angel Fallis (3-0-0, 1KOs) against tough-as-nails Ana Ruth Castro (1-1-0, 1KOs); and the return of national contender Phil “The Assassin” Rose (9-6-1, 5KOs) of Whitby, Ontario, against heavy-handed brawler Edgar Mora (5-7-2, 5KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico.

Phil Rose returns to boxing against Edgar Mora tonight in Oshawa!

On Friday, November 1, the Classic Boxing Company presents the return of crowd favourite Phil “The Assassin” Rose (9-6-1, 5KOs) of Whitby, Ontario, against heavy-handed brawler Edgar Mora (5-7-2, 5KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico, in a four round, super middleweight contest at the Children’s Arena in Oshawa. The fight represents Rose’s return to boxing after a two-year hiatus.

“For the last couple years I was focusing on my family and my career,” explained Rose. “However, my love for boxing was always at the forefront and I have decided to return professionally.”

Rose is well-known for his stoppage victories over Canadian Olympian Adam Trupish (11-2-0, 8KOs) and reigning national light heavyweight champion Ryan Young (13-4-0, 10KOs), as well as close battles with world title challenger Brandon Cook (20-2-0, 13KOs) and former WBF titlist Fitz Vanderpool (26-8-4, 13KOs).

Mora will be a good test for Rose’s first fight back. The well-tested Mexican typically knocks out his opponent or falls victim to a stoppage himself. Unlike Rose, however, Mora has been busy in 2019, fighting three times this calendar year.

“My goals for the next few years are to continue to strive for greatness,” said Rose. “I want to show my professional boxing skill and ability, ultimately gaining a title. The fans should expect a high level performance from me, demonstrating my acumen and athleticism as as a fighter.”

Rose-Mora is part of the undercard for the return of unified Canadian super lightweight champion Steve Wilcox (21-3-1, 5KOs) of Hamilton, Ontario, against Gustavo Torres (9-7-1, 4KOs) of Mexico. Other undercard fights include the return of amateur national champion and Oshawa favourite Evan Gillard (3-0-0, 1KOs) against once-defeated Brandon Gallardo (3-1-0, 1KOs) of Ciudad Neza, Mexico, in a light-flyweight six rounder; an all-Ontario, super-welterweight clash between Thad Ridsdill (2-1-0, 1KOs) of Oshawa and Mikhail Miller (2-4-1) of Toronto; Hamilton featherweight Kylie Angel Fallis (3-0-0, 1KOs) against tough-as-nails Ana Ruth Castro (1-1-0, 1KOs); and Super lightweights Dylan Rushton of Hamilton and Kyle Marsh (0-3-0) of Peterborough in a provincial rematch.
