Cody Crowley (12-0-0, 6 KOs) will defend his Canadian Professional Boxing Council (CPBC) international super-welterweight title Sept. 30 in his hometown of Peterborough against Jamaican challenger Richard “Frog” Holmes (14-7-0, 7 KOs).

The Peterborough Memorial Centre (PMC) will be the place that last hosted Crawley’s title-winning bout May 13, when he decisioned Edgar Ortega.

“The Crippler,” who recently helped Floyd Mayweather train for his fight against Conor McGregor, achieved his goal by winning the belt.

“I have to make a statement this fight,” Crowley told The Peterborough Examiner’s Mike Davis. “I have to be able to start stopping these guys and getting them out of there. These guys are like gatekeepers for once you get up into the world class. Letting these fighters survive let’s me know I’m not ready for that world class.”

In addition to the title bout, there are several May 13 rematches on the six-fight card.

Tickets are $22.60 CAD to $56.50 CAD, not including applicable surcharges and can be purchased at the PMC box office.

 

The card currently includes:

JAY COCORAN (0-1-0) VS JASON KELLY (1-0-0)

ABOKAN BOPKE (6-0-0) VS BROCK ARTHUR (3-2-0)

TRAVIS REEVES (15-2-2-) VS IBN CARSON

THOMAS FRANCIS (0-0-0) VS STAN MANCEBO (0-0-0)

ONE BOUT TBA
