There are a number of Midwestern fighters in action tonight at the All Seasons Arena in Minot, North Dakota. In an interesting light-heavyweight match up featured on the card, undefeated Minot boxer Michael Walker (6-0) takes on road warrior Harley Kilfian (9-9) in what could be the fight of the night.

Walker says he is originally from Detroit but moved to North Dakota while in the Air Force. The 28 year old is currently in the National Guard. Walker won three Region 3 Golden Gloves titles and had a total of 32 amateur bouts under coach Richard Cavalera before turning pro in 2006.
Walker's biggest win came when he stopped "The Principal" Ben Lane in 2009 but the Guards along with other things forced Walker out of the ring until he returned with two wins this year. Walker began his career at middleweight but fought this year at Cruiserweight. He says tonight's bout will be to test out the light heavyweight division against Kilfian.

"I really don't know much about Harley Kilfian" said Walker. " My team has seen him fight and they tell me it is a good fight for me. I am in great condition so I should be ready for whatever style he brings. I want to stay as busy as possible from here on out and be ready for any opportunity that comes my way."

"The Sandman" Harley Kilfian is no stranger to MN fight fans. Kilfian holds notable wins over James Taylor, Marty Lindquist (twice) and Tim Taggart. Kilfian always shows up ready to trade punches and says this Saturday night will be no different. Like Walker, Kilfian says he will be going into the fight with little knowledge of his opponent.

" To be honest, I don't know much about Walker. Even if I had video to study, I don't think I would. I just like to show up in the best shape possible. I am in top shape and ready to go. You know me, I am ready to bang with anybody they put in front of me."

The rest of the card is a little unclear at this point. I can confirm that Duluth's Al Sands has taken a last second fight opportunity against ND's Travis McCollugh after Bobby Dean was forced off due to illness. Bloomington's David LaQue will also be fighting on the card. His opponent wasn't named but the three above names all confirmed they made weight yesterday.
