Three Lions Promotions adds Carolyn Redmond and Pat Pytlik for September 7!

Three Lions Promotions is excited to announce the debuts of amateur boxing standout Carolyn Redmond and once-defeated MMA veteran Pat Pytlik on the already stacked “Se7en” show on September 7 at the Hamilton Convention Centre. The card will be headlined by Bradley Wilcox (8-0-0, 4KOs) and Mohammed Abedeen (10-1-1, 3KOs) in a ten round, NABA Canadian lightweight title fight.

Like so many promising boxers of late, Carolyn Redmond fights out of the TNT Boxing Academy in Guelph. She made her amateur debut in 2014, winning the Open Ontario Provincial Championship the following year, after just fourteen fights. With 75 amateur fights and multiple provincial crowns to her credit, Redmond is determined to have the same success in the punch-for-pay ranks, beginning with her debut on September 7.

“The pro game and longer bouts will be ideal for her,” said coach Stevie Bailey. “Carolyn has done many 10 round sparring sessions with world-class pros from across Canada, including world champions. The long game suits her style much more than that fast paced three rounders of amateur boxing.”

Kitchener’s Pat Pytlik is no stranger to the fight game. After fighting in pro Muay Thai in Thailand, Pytlik took his talents to MMA, amassing an impressive 7-1-0 record. A talented striker, Pytlik scored stoppages in all seven of his MMA victories, including last year’s TKO5 over Vyron Phillips to win the Unified MMA Welterweight Championship. Now Pytlik leaves the cage for the ring, eager to excel in an impressive third professional combat sport.

In the co-main event, Ryan “The Bruiser” Rozicki (10-0-0, 10KOs) defends his NABA Canadian Cruiserweight Championship against former Olympian, turned MMA and boxing standout Khetag Pliev (5-0-0, 2KOs) of Russia. The undercard is rounded out by Hamiltonians Kevin Higson and Jessie Wilcox, as well as Niagara Falls prospect Marko Szalai and the pro debut of former Team Canada member Aaron Huggins.

Wilcox-Abedeen now for NABA Canadian title!

Three Lions Promotions (TLP) is pleased to announce that the much anticipated showdown between Ontario standouts Bradley Wilcox (8-0-0, 4KOs) of Hamilton and Mohammed Abedeen (10-1-1, 3KOs) of North York will be for the vacant NABA Canadian lightweight championship. The fight represents the main event of TLP’s “Seven” show, marking their seventh event in Hamilton with seven fights on September 7 at the Hamilton Convention Centre. With the NABA Canadian title now on the line, the winner of Wilcox-Abedeen can expect to improve their ranking in the World Boxing Association (WBA) – the oldest of the “big four” sanctioning bodies.

At just 24 years of age, Wilcox is moving into championship action early in his professional career. “We’re excited to get Bradley on the WBA’s radar at this young an age,” said Managing Director of Three Lions Promotions Daniel Otter. “He looked great in his eight rounder in May. We’re confident that he’s ready for the ten round, championship distance.”

The contest also marks Abedeen’s first ten-round appearance, but the North York hopeful has already gone eight rounds on three occasions, leaving little doubt about his stamina in the ring. Abedeen also has significantly more pro experience, boasting 63 rounds of competition to Wilcox’s 28. The Hamiltonian, however, is unfazed.

“Sure, he has more rounds under his belt as a pro. He has more fights too,” said Wilcox. “I’ve boxed hundreds of rounds with some of the best fighters in the country. Training with my brothers, Kevin Higson, and Josh O’Reilly, I get championship-caliber rounds every single day. Ten rounds is nothing to me anymore.”

In the co-main event, Ryan “The Bruiser” Rozicki (10-0-0, 10KOs) defends his NABA Canadian Cruiserweight Championship against former Olympian, turned MMA and boxing standout Khetag Pliev (5-0-0, 2KOs) of Russia. The undercard is rounded out by Hamiltonians Kevin Higson and Jessie Wilcox, as well as Niagara Falls prospect Marko Szalai and the pro debut of former Team Canada member Aaron Huggins.
