A pair of brothers who happen to be two of the best fight prospects in Ohio are set to make their EliteXC debuts in October.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com was the first to report several months ago that half-brothers Torrance Taylor (pictured) and Tiawan Howard had signed multi-fight contracts with EliteXC. And now we can be the first to report that they have been added to EliteXC’s ShoXC event to take place on Friday, Oct. 10 at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana.
We confirmed the news while speaking with their manager, Mike Camp of F1 Management.
While opponents have yet to be finalized, EliteXC officials have confirmed that tentative matchups have been set for the two. Taylor, a dynamic lightweight striker, is likely to face former UFC veteran Jeff Cox while Howard, who normally competes at welterweight, will move up to middleweight to face Hector Urbina.
