Quebecer Frederik Dupras will be back in action on the TKO 49 card. He will move up to 145 for the occasion to fight Paul Fisher.
Dupras did not enter the cage since August 2018. He lost by violent 51 seconds knockout to Johnny Baldridge in his last outing. Before that, Dupras had won his two first pro fights by submission in less than a minute. His three pro fights took place at Bantamweight. Dupras was recognized as a huge 135er who cut a lot of weight before his move to 145.
Paul Fisher also lost in his last bout, his only pro fight. It happened at BTC 6 where he was defeated by a doctor’s stoppage due to a cut against Teshay Gouthro. Fisher had a 4-1 record as an amateur before turning pro.
