BATTLEQUEST 5 "AVALANCHE!!" - Returns to Colorado

ROF promoter Sven Bean is happy to announce that he is bringing back the promotion BATTLEQUEST to the fight circuit. From August of 2003 to August of 2004, BATTLEQUEST ran four successful events. The promotion was originally created to provide athletes a venue to get ring experience, and work as a feeder show to the RING OF FIRE flagship. The shows featured top up and coming fighters from Colorado and surrounding states. The promotion also featured the debut of some very popular ROF fighters. ROF Bantam Weight Champion Joe Doherty , K-1 Heroes veteran Ali Abdelaziz, and lightweight Rocky Johnson all cut their teeth on BATTLEQUEST.

"With the success of Ring Of Fire, it made sense to bring back Battlequest. I have so many fighters that want to fight and I can't keep them all busy. I also need a place for me to build fighters and explore new talent. I brought in my partner from Vail, Carlos Carvahlo to run the series. We have done a few events together and he knows what to expect out of a ROF event. We plan on doing 2-3 events in Vail, and also return to Castle Rock with the series in the summer. I am excited to see what Carlos can do with the opportunity." said Bean

On Saturday March 31st, the promotion comes to the Dobson Arena in Vail, Colorado. BATTLEQUEST 5: AVALANCHE! will feature 10 MMA bouts, and 1 Muay Thai match.The full line up will be released next week, but the card is headlined by the first title match in BATTLEQUEST history.
