“Canada has had such a great boxing resurgence in the last decade, and I am thrilled to participate in the boxing scene there, and am especially happy to be working beside Russ at ringside,” Bernstein said. He added, “The sign of a healthy boxing environment is when there are matches on all levels from club shows to major championship fights—and that is what’s been happening in Canada.”
The September 25th main event is an NABA Lightweight title match pitting Buzz Grant against Logan Cotton-McGuinness. Many are calling this one of the most anticipated grudge matches in Ontario boxing history. The undercard, also televised on the Super Channel, is headed up by a showdown of unbeaten welterweight prospects, Samuel Vargas vs. Ryan Wagner.
