FightSportsENT and Joey Ancona have had a very busy 2018, and with the second annual Battle in the Garden of Eden just around the corner, it doesn't look like things will be slowing down anytime soon. The last show, BNO27 was a huge success. The main event between Jewel Scott and Matt Stock an absolute brawl and a real crowd pleaser. Both guys came in a fought their heart out in the cage with Jewel coming out victorious. With the help of the fighters and loyal fan base, the event sold out and PACKED the Copeland Tower in Metairie, showing how far the Organization has come over the last year. While the Battle of New Orleans event is growing every show, it's been a whole year since the last show at Visions, and fans have been dying for another one ever since. After paw-paw Ancona has been taking some time away to spend weekends with Grandson Bronx at the Audubon Zoo, he's back by popular demand to give the people what they deserve! The highly anticipated Battle in the Garden of Eden II. April 20, at Visions Men's Club 4000 Dowman RD. Doors open @ 7:00 and fights start at 8:00.
This show will host more Pro fights than ever with Michael “Magic Mike” McDonald finally facing off under the FightSportsENT flag. This time he'll be fighting in the main event VS Brant Moore of Team 515 Longview out of Texas. Michael has been set to fight with the Organization a number of times, however, with injuries riddling both fighters, it simply never happened. McDonald will be coming off of a highly questionable loss in his last fight, so he’ll be coming into this one to prove a point. Brant is both an impressive striker and brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so Mike will need to bring his A game walk away successful.
The Co-Main event will be between Michael Lombardo from American Top Team in Jupiter, Florida and PBA Hardhitters own, Tony Jenkins. Lombardo is coming off a very impressive showing in his first fight with FightSportsENT at BNO27. Lombardo was able to find the hometown favorite TJ Landry's timing early, and won by knock out in just the first round. After enjoying his time in the city so much, Lombardo is back in New Orleans to put on a show for you guys.Tony Jenkins of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, will be coming in with a professional record of 2-1. Both guys have prefer to strike and love to put on a show for the crowd, so don't expect this one to go the distance.
Our last Pro fight will be between tough hometown kickboxer Dusan Sacvocic training out of Mushin MMA VS Emmanuel “Bad News” Verdier. This will be a STAND UP ONLY fight between to high level strikers so don't blink. Dusan is coming off an impressive win in his last showing at BNO25 where he won by 1st round TKO. He'll be hoping to take this W home to his new wife. Congratulations on the engagement. Mr. "Bad News" Verdier will be hoping to be just that in this Light-Heavy Weight Match-up at 205lbs.
