Local fighter successfully defends welterweight title
Comox Valley’s own Chris Anderson is STILL the Battlefield Fight League‘s welterweight champion!
Last night, Anderson defended his title at the River Rock Casino in Richmond.
He was up against Mazadak Pourbohloul. The bout went to the second round, but at the 2:42 mark, Anderson decided he’d had enough, and knocked the lights out of Pourbohloul for the KO victory.
The champ currently trains out of the Comox Valley Boxing Club and holds an amateur record of 8-2-0.
In addition to being a champion in the octagon, Anderson’s doing good outside the world of MMA. He’s currently working with the charitable organization Fight for the Forgotten to raise money to build a fresh water well for a tribe in the Congo.
A page has been set up for Chris dedicated to this charitable effort. To find out more, visit gofundme.com/ru9c98z.
