Tacoma, WA (April 5, 2012) – Halquist Productions returns to the Emerald Queen Casino for “CageSport XIX” Saturday, April 28.

Tickets for this action-packed card start at $35 and are available at the Emerald Queen Box Office or on ticketmaster.com.

In the main event of the evening, unbeaten lightweight and submission specialist Julian Erosa of Yakima, WA puts his 6-0 record on the line when he battles grizzled Spokane, WA based veteran Ryan Mulvihill in a five round bout for the vacant CageSport Lightweight title. Both Erosa and Mulvihill scored impressive submission victories on the last CageSport card in February, but will have to take their game to the next level to claim the championship.

Co-headlining is the CageSport Bantamweight Championship fight between Aberdeen, WA’s favorite son Jeff Hatton, 6-0, and former Fight Night champion Omar Avelar of Olympia, WA. Hatton, a top-notch prospect, scored first round submissions in five of his bouts, while Avelar’s been victorious in his last two appearances on CageSport cards.

The Hatton-Avelar contest is also scheduled for five rounds.

“This title doubleheader is going to be something special,” said promoter Brian Halquist, CEO of Halquist Productions. “We’ve got some great fighters on this card and every ticketholder will get more than their money’s worth!”

Undefeated prospects Harrison Bevens and Austin Springer see action in separate bouts, while heavyweights Richard Foster and Mike Riddell are set to slug it out. Three additional undercard bouts featuring local talent will also take place.

Doors for “CageSport XIX” open at 6 pm and the first match takes place at 7 pm.
