2014 Halquist Productions Schedule; Change in 2013 Schedule
Tacoma, WA (July 3, 2013) – The Northwest’s premier fight promotional company, Halquist Productions, will once again be returning to the local fight scene next year. Ten shows have been scheduled throughout 2014 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA, giving the best fighters in the region another round of opportunity to showcase their talent and work their way up the ranks. In the 2013 schedule, the August date has switched from Battle at the Boat and is being replaced with CageSport XXVI.
Comparable to previous years, five Battle at the Boat boxing events will go along with five CageSport MMA events that will alternate throughout the entire year.
2013 has been an outstanding year for Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat and CageSport and will look to help pave the way for a successful 2014.
Olympian boxer, Zahir Raheem, officially signed on with the promotion in pursuit of once again challenging for a world title. In his comeback to boxing with Halquist Productions, Raheem easily defeated his first two opponents and will look to solidify his case as a junior welterweight contender at Battle at the Boat 93. Fight fans will get to see Raheem in 2014 as he works his way into contention.
CageSport’s televised event on regional sports network, ROOT SPORTS, in late2012, helped the promotion take off in 2013, selling out shows and even catching the attention of the United Fight Alliance which is in the process of airing CageSport XXIV into over 100 million homes around the United States. The booming exposure along with the tremendous MMA talent in the region brings hope of a big year ahead for Halquist Productions and CageSport.
