Details

Earlier today, Pacific X-treme Combat (PXC), announced that the Interim-Bantamweight title bout between Joe “The Juggernaut” Taimanglo and Japan Shooto Champion, Michinori Tanaka is cancelled due to Taimanglo's injury.

“Taimanglo's injury was definitely unexpected but it happens in this business. We wish him a speedy recovery. We will continue to move forward and give PXC fans great matchups. Michinori Tanaka will stay busy with PXC and will move to our March 8th event in Guam, fighting newly-signed Bantamweight, Caleb "The Original" Vallotton, hailing from Reign MMA in California. Vallotton is a training partner of UFC star Mark Munoz, one of the top Middleweights in the world," said EJ Calvo, PXC CEO and Promoter.

Vallotton is no push over as he's been on a 3-fight win streak since 2011 and will be a good test for the undefeated Tanaka. Most of his wins are due to his wrestling, a skill he has honed with UFC Filipino-American star, Mark Munoz. Vallotton's tremendous mental and physical tougness will be a perfect match to Tanaka's tenacity.

Calvo further exclaimed, "We are confident that our next 2 shows will continue drawing bigger crowds. Fans will enjoy watching their favorite PXC fighters and get a chance to see new stars from across the globe! Our fight cards are one of the best in the industry, matching some of the most skilled fighters against each other as they climb the rankings.”
