Heavyweights Bobby Lashley (2-0) and Bob Sapp (10-3-1) will square off on June 27th at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississipi, according to MMA Fanhouse.
The bout will headline the first-ever MMA event for Prize Fight, a boxing promotion company that has promoted a number of high-profile boxing matches since 2002 and will now venture into promoting MMA events.
According to the Fanhouse report, a number of “familiar” MMA names will be appearing on the June 27th card alongside Lashley and Sapp. Additionally, Lashley is reportedly in negotiations to fight in May for Maximum Fighting Championships and will not return to wrestling with TNA after appearing on the company’s “Lockdown” pay-per-view on Sunday.
In just his second professional fight, Lashley defeated late-replacement Jason Guida via unanimous decision in March.
Sapp has won 5 of his last 6 fights, most-recently defeating Akihito Tanaka via first-round TKO at FieLDS Dynamite!! in December.
