The Legacy Fighting Alliance is ready to explode at the Bomb Factory, bringing with it a fighter attempting to become the promotion's first simultaneous two-division interim champ, as Casey Kenney moves up in weight to face Vince Cachero at bantamweight.
Interim flyweight champion Kenney hit the scales at 134.6 pounds, as he contends for the interim bantamweight title against Cachero (133.8), in the LFA 62 main event this Friday at the Bomb Factory in Dallas. Co-headlining the card will be a catchweight bout between Levi Mowles (136.8) and Ahmet Kayretli (137.8), with the two agreeing before the weigh-ins that they would both come in over the bantamweight limit.
LFA 62, which airs live on AXS TV on Friday, March 22 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, also features a welterweight contest between Ramiz Brahimaj (170.2) and Carlos Martinez (170.6). In the bantamweight division, the unbeaten Fernando Garcia (135.6) takes on Cody Freeman (*137.6). At a 120-pound women's catchweight, Valerie Soto (**120.4) meets Crystal Vanessa Demopoulos (119.4). Rounding out the main card will be a 150-pound catchweight battle between undefeated Austin Lingo (149.8) and Angel Cruz (149.4).
Three fighters officially came in heavy: Cody Freeman (*137.6) missed weight for his bantamweight bout by 1.6 pounds, Valerie Soto (**120.4) missed weight for her strawweight bout by 5.4 pounds, and Marquis Smith (***130.6) missed weight for his flyweight bout by 4.6 pounds. As Soto came in over four pounds heavy, Demopoulos was allowed to rehydrate to reach Soto's weight. Freeman, Soto and Smith have been fined a percentage of their respective purses.
