Cage Champs owner Patrick Smith talks first ever Pro/Am

By Matt Frazier | Knuckle Junkies

On Saturday April 7th, Cage Championships will host their first ever event with professional fights.

We caught up with Patrick to talk to him about this upcoming card, and why its extra special for him. Cage Champs 37 features his mentor Steve Berger and protegee Jake Collier, a mixing of "old school and new school."

The card also is the highly anticipated professional debut of two very exciting fighters in heavyweight Steve Rustemeyer, who is a physical specimen, and the electric Javon "Wolfman" Wright.
