ICF Officially Announces ICF: Sacrifice on May 16th - Luke Zachrich Set to Headline


From a Press Release:

On Saturday, May 16th, Cincinnati's own Luke Zachrich will return to the cage to take on J.R. "The Dragon" Hines at Turfway Park in Florence, KY.

Zachrich, who recently fought for ICF on April 11th at U.S. Bank Arena and took the win against Robert Thompson, is currently 9-1. He looks to add to that against J.R. "The Dragon" Hines. Hines carries a 2-2 record as a pro.

ICF Super Heavyweight Champion Jim Davis will return to Turfway Park to defend his newly crowned title against Oleg Koranevskis. Koranevskis hails from Florida and is 0-1 as an amateur. Davis from Team Vision is currently undefeated and has a record of 3-0.

Exclusive ICF fighter George Oiler will make his pro debut against 0-2 pro Neal Craft. Oiler is coming off a tough loss to former ICF Light Heavyweight Champ T.J. Ball. Craft is looking for his first win as a pro after suffering his second loss against ICF's Victor O'Donnell in January at Turfway Park.

Team Extreme's Kevin Cantley will be fighting Matt Pinzher for the vacant 135lb title. Also on the card is Team Extreme's Matt Egner versus undefeated Ben McQuerry for the vacant 145lb title. Egner with a 4-2 record will be looking to come back after two losses against ICF champ Steve Muldrow. McQuerry who last fought in October for ICF, will be ready to improve on his unmarked record.

Turfway Park's own, "Hacksaw" John Hays will make his return to the cage against Doug Keefe. Hays' last time in the cage delivered him the award for "Fighter of the Night". This fight will be no less than that as Keefe is undefeated.

Along with these exciting fights, other fighters on the card will be Jason Cocagne, Mark Crawn, Justin Hunt, Dave Heidorn, Doug Balinger and Tyler Johnson.

ICF "Sacrifce" is a charity event sponsored by ICF and Hooters. A portion of ticket sales will go towards the following charities, The Point Northern Kentucky and The Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
