TACOMA, Wash. – Knockout specialist Lafarrell Bunting meets Matt O’ Brien in a scheduled 10-round light heavyweight main event at Battle at the Boat 81 on Saturday at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma.

Bunting, fighting out of Memphis, TN, has registered knockouts in all 17 of his professional victories, including a sixth-round TKO of Junior Moar in his most recent bout on Nov. 13, 2010.

The hard-hitting Bunting (17-3-1, 17 KOs) squares off against an opponent who has only lost once during his 19-bout career as O’ Brien, from Vancouver, British Columbia, brings a stellar record of 18-1-0 with 7 KOs into the contest.

You have two very skilled fighters facing each other both looking to continue their climb up the rankings,” said promoter Brian Halquist. “It should make for an outstanding fight.”
