A middleweight match-up between Matt Horwich and Danillo Villefort has been booked to headline Shark Fight’s first card of the year. Shark Fights 14 is expected to take place on March 11th at the Fair Park City Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas. Shark Fight officials also hinted at the possibility for a network TV deal for the event.
Former IFL middleweight champion, Matt Horwich has been the poster-child of inconsistency his entire fighting career. He’s won two of his last three fights, including victories over former UFC title contender Thales Leites and NCAA Division I National Champion wrestler, Jake Rosholt. Horowich dropped a split decision to Eric Shambari last September for Bellator Fighting Championships.
Danillo Villefort is still considered one of the top prospects in the 185-pound division. Since losing to Jesse Lennox due to a doctor’s stoppage in his only UFC fight, Villefort has since gone on a three-fight winning streak. Villefort most recenty defeated former Strikeforce contender, Joey Villasenor by unanimous decision on just a week’s notice.
