Detroit, MI- Two of the best in Michigan will battle it out at 155 as Brandon ‘The Beast’ Noble (4-4) will face Josh ‘The Titan’ Visel (5-2) at WXC 70. After trying three bouts at 145, Noble returns back to the 155 division on November 11th. He recently has been fighting below 155 for his last three scheduled bouts. This run saw the Michigan Top Team product go (1-1) and have a last minute fight cancellation due to weight cutting for WXC 68.
Despite success for Noble below 155, including a win in his last fight in August over Murjan Flowers, he decided to be closer to his natural weight for this bout. Plus a win over the likes of Visel would really help Noble jump up the rankings in WXC at 155. ‘The Beast’ is a former WXC amateur champion and will step into the WXC steel as a pro for the fourth time. Of his four pro wins, two have come by finish with one knockout and submission each.
‘The Titan’ is on the other side of this tussle having lost his last two bouts. Visel has never lost back to back fights before as a pro or amateur. A win over Noble puts Visel right back into title contention in the WXC 155 class. His fight back at WXC 69 in July was a hard fought 15 minute war against Deven Brown. Despite coming up short, it was the fight of the night and earned best moment honors from the fans as well.
Much like his opponent, Josh has tried fighting below 155 including that bout against Deven Brown. With that fight being contested as a 150 catchweight. Even though he put forth a great effort, not cutting those extra five pounds should show the complete Josh Visel on Novemeber 11th. In his five pro victories, ‘The Titan’ has four finishes and all are by submission. Look for Visel to carry the momentum and experience of his last WXC fight into this bout on Veteran’s Day for WXC 70.
Doors open at 6pm with the fights starting at 7pm on November 11th.
