BOISE, Idaho – The Co-Main Event matchup has been altered ahead of Front Street Fights 22: Flores vs. Stolen, presented by Project Filter, on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 7:00 p.m. from Idaho Central Arena. Jamal Davis will now be taking on Ricky “The Karate Kid” Steele in the bantamweight bout due to an injury to Nick Burgos.
Davis (1-1) makes his Front Street Fights debut coming off his first pro win in late July in a unanimous decision against Kody Hammond. The fighter out of Spokane, Wash. made his professional debut in early July following his five-fight amateur career resulting in a 3-2 record. He also fought in a boxing match in January 2020.
He goes against Steele (6-2), who returns to Front Street Fights for the third time, last taking down Joaquin Calderon at Front Street Fights 7 in November 2015 and defeating Gabe Pelayo in the first Front Street Fights event in May 2014. The 5-foot-11 local kid swept his first six bouts as well as an exhibition on Season 27 of The Ultimate Fighter as a contestant.
The five amateur bouts and four professional bouts lead up to the evening finale with the Lightweight Title match between Treasure Valley native Darrell Flores and Bellator veteran Nathan “Superman” Stolen. This will be the first major MMA event in Boise since Front Street Fights 21: Cruz vs. McKinney on Jan. 10, 2020 at Idaho Central Arena.
