Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and I just wanted to start a discussion about a new promotion called Strikebox that's starting in Montreal on Feb 6th. Basically I just want to get people's opinions on whether or not you would go if you were in my shoes. The promotion "Strikebox" has a pretty unprofessional website with just the event poster and a link to buy tickets:

http://www.strikebox.tv/

As featured in Yahoo MMA news, this is a promotion with modified rules:

"James Thompson, the U.K. heavyweight who lost to Slice on the first CBS special on May 31, and hasn’t been able to fight since, has had to take a freak-show fight on Feb. 6 in Montreal to pay bills. The fight will be against former-minor-league-hockey-enforcer-turned-fighter Steve Bosse on a promotion called Strikebox.

It’s a sport involving boxing, but with takedowns, similar to the martial art San Shou or the Japanese sport of Shootbox, except using smaller MMA gloves instead of boxing gloves. The rules: Punching and takedowns are allowed, and takedowns are worth points, but there is an immediate stand-up after a takedown, with no ground fighting allowed."

That being said, the only attraction for me is James Thompson but at the same time I feel he is being set up to lose against the hometown hockey enforcer. I would just like to hear everyone's thoughts on the subject.

Oh and also..since these are hybrid rules, would they even count against a fighter's MMA record?

Thanks!

I don't know, but it looks like they need to drain Thompson's ear again.

The cheapest are 50, which is the reason I am actually considering going.

Anyone who saw the fight knows JT didn't lose to Kimbo. The reffing in that fight had the corrupt hand of Shady Shaw all over it.

War James!

This sounds like Shootboxing, which is quite fun.

War JT!
