Local favorite Favio Medina (21-2-2, 8 KOs) will again headline this Thursday’s main event at the Coeur d’ Alene Casino in Worley, Idaho as he steps into the ring against the rugged Jason Papillon (38-14-1, 25 KOs) in the ten round main event. Medina, who has fought all his fights at his home casino is coming off of a devastating KO loss. Papillon is a well traveled veteran who has been in with the far better competition. It’s the age old question here, what do you like, experience or youth?
Also, heavyweight Skyler Anderson (13-1-1, 8 KOs) climbs in against Gabe Brown (18-11-4, 12 KOs). The fans of Idaho are anxious to see Skyler step up in competition, but Brown hasn’t won in four years. We will see if this fight fits the bill.
The undercard is headlined by Candy Robertson (14-9, 10 KOs) squaring off against Hilario Lopez (11-7, 8 KOs) in a junior middleweight contest. This fight may be the gem of the night for fast-paced action.
Three additional bouts are slated. The action starts at 7:00 PM.
