B.C.'s Kang To Face Vernon "Tiger" White In Main Event At "W-1: Bad Blood" -- March 20th
Yesterday morning (Jan. 25th), the news broke that B.C.'s Denis Kang (32-12-1) had signed a two-fight deal with Toronto-based W-1 promotion. It was rumoured that Kang would make his debut with them as early as their upcoming "Bad Blood" show. Today, MMACanada.net is reporting that Kang will indeed fight on that card, which is set for the Pierre Charbonneau Centre in Montreal, Quebec Canada on Saturday March 20th, 2010.
Not only that, it has also been confirmed that Kang's opponent for that show will be Vernon "Tiger" White (26-33-2 [pictures above])-- a fighter who is almost as well-travelled as he is widely respected in the fight game. Vernon is well known for suffering a KO at the hands of Chuck Liddell (21-7)at UFC 49 in mid-2004, but he has fought regularly since that time against some of the biggest names in the business, compiling a record of 6-7 in a variety of promotions.
This will, by no means, be an easy fight for Denis Kang because White's years of experience mean there is nothing Kang can do that "Tiger" hasn't seen before. Still, it is certainly a winnable fight for one of B.C.'s brightest MMA stars and just the sort of win that could start Denis Kang on the road back to the octagon.
