Speaking about the fight, Tahdooahnippah said, “This is a very big fight for me … I’m very happy that it will be broadcast live on [website] Go Fight Live so that Native Americans and fight fans across the country can see me fight.
“King is an ex-college football player, very strong and a southpaw. He’s obviously looking to make his name off my undefeated record, but I’ve prepared very well. We’ve had a great camp and excellent southpaw sparring.”
