Seth Kleinbeck set to fight in Southaven

Stuttgart resident Dr. Seth Kleinbeck will be in his first fight of 2007 at The DeSoto County Civic Center in Southaven, Miss. Saturday, Feb. 10.

“The fight (first fight of the evening) starts at 8 (p.m.), it comes on live on Showtime at 9 (p.m.),” Kleinbeck said.

Kleinbeck said the location of the fight is approximately 10 minutes from Memphis, Tenn.

Kleinbeck said all 10 fights taking place on Feb. 10 at The DeSoto County Civic Center could be seen live on www.elitexc.xom. However, the last five fights of the evening, which includes Kleinbeck’s could also be seen on Showtime live.

Kleinbeck will be fighting against Riki Fukuda.

Kleinbeck said the promoter of EliteXC, the company who is putting together the event, got in touch with his manager.

“The promoter of the organization got in touch with my manager,” Kleinbeck said, noting there was an interest in getting local individuals from the mid-south to fight.

Kleinbeck said John Shackelford from Mississippi and Adriano Nasal, who lives in Memphis, would also be fighting.

“In my fight, we get paid so much to show up,” Kleinbeck said. “It’s $3,000 to show up and $3,000 if you win and there’s a $3,000 bonus if you knock him out in the first round. It goes down to $1,500 if you knock him out in the second round.”
