Samuel Vargas vs. Przemyslaw Runowski
Rebel Entertainment Complex, Toronto, Canada – 13 March 2022
Fightzone has some great international action for viewers on Sunday March 13th with a show from Canada – the first of five Canadian events they will be bringing you this year. Fightzone is completely FREE to watch around the world until the end of April (and then just $3.50 monthly for Canadian subscribers afterwards – equivalent to our £1.99 UK charge ).
The March 13th Toronto show is headlined by former NABA Champion Samuel Vargas (31-7-2) taking on Przemyslaw Runowski (19-2-0) for the IBO International Welterweight Title on a Lee Baxter Promotions Event.
Canada-based Colombian Vargas is well known to British fights fans for his previous visits to the UK where he faced Amir Khan and Conor Benn.
Following his defeat to rising star Benn last April, Vargas is eager to showcase the skills that gained him international recognition as a gritty veteran. Returning to fight in his adopted hometown for the first time since 2018, Vargas looks to put on a thrilling performance in front of a crowd at Rebel Entertainment Complex.
“Fans make all the difference in the world” Vargas notes. “It was an adjustment having to go out there without them, and there’s no doubt I perform to my potential when I hear them roar. Being back in Toronto, having a chance to go for the IBO title in front of a packed house – I’m going to deliver one hell of a performance on March 13th.”
Having gone to war with elite fighters Errol Spence Jr and Khan, Vargas views the bout with Runowski as a tough test on the climb back to facing world-level opposition.
Poland’s Przemyslaw Runowski is looking to capture the IBO International Welterweight Title with his debut on the Canadian boxing scene. The East European will also be familiar to UK fans after his loss against Portsmouth’s unbeaten Michael McKinson last summer. A promising fighter, Runowski will bring his athletic, built-to-last style to Toronto, along with a decent Polish fanbase.
The fight card will also feature the return of two undefeated hometown standouts. Mississauga’s Amanda Galle (5-0-0), fresh off a November super bantamweight victory against Jaica Pavilus (1-4-1), aims to continue her perfect professional career on home turf. The co-main event will see light heavyweight standout Nick Fantauzzi (10-0-0) return from a two-year hiatus to remind Canadian boxing fans why he’s a thrilling prospect in the division.
With top prospects and new Lee Baxter Promotions signings added to the card, Sunday, March 13th looks to showcase next-generation talent in a thrilling boxing event.
