Boise, ID (1/19/17)— After five career amateur fights at CenturyLink Arena, Paul “Ferocious” Crawford will make his professional MMA debut when he faces Jacob Hauck in a Lightweight bout at Front Street Fights 11, presented by Bodybuilding.com, on February 24th at CenturyLink Arena.
Crawford, an Idaho native, was on the amateur card at FSF4, FSF8, FSF9, and FSF10, as well as RFA27. The six-foot fighter was 2-3-0 in his amateur career, coming off his first win at Front Street Fights. Crawford defeated Mike Fuentes via knockout just 58 seconds into the first round at FSF10 in December, his first knockout win. None of Crawford’s five amateur fights extended beyond the second round.
Hauck (1-2-0) returns to the cage after three and a half years away, last fighting in April 2013 at Impact FC: Revolution where he was defeated by Charles Cheeks. The fighter out of Montana earned his first professional win against Drew Beck at “FFL- Backflips and Beatdowns 2” in May 2012, a submission win via guillotine choke that took only 35 seconds.
The Crawford-Hauck bout joins a fight card that already features the main event Flyweight title fight between Idaho natives Czar “The Gunfighter” Sklavos and Casey “Wild Style” Johnson, as well as the long-awaited co-main event meeting between Thiago Alves and Josh “The White Mamba” Wick
Doors for Front Street Fights 11 will open at 6pm, with the first fight scheduled for 7pm.
