Kattar goes from fighter to promoter for Combat Zone

(Continued)

The brothers compliment each other perfectly. Calvin mostly handles relationships with the fighters, matchmaking and dealing with the fight camps. Jamison has plenty of experience and a great working relationship with the commissions handling his brother’s fighting career.

Their second show is already scheduled for November.

Kattar’s fight career isn’t over, either.

At just 25 years old, the talented striker is simply adding the promoting piece to his resume, not replacing fighting.

“I’ve been doing this for eight years,” he said. “This was just the perfect move for me. It allows me to get experience running a business, running a business I love, and I can continue training and fighting. Working a regular 9-to-5 wouldn’t have anything to do with my prior experience, so when this opportunity came along it was the perfect it.”

Combat Zone 45 When: Friday, 8 p.m. bell time Where: Rockingham Park (Salem) Tickets: www.czmma.com Locals: Lawrence's Rodrigo Almeida (9-2), 140 pounds; North Andover's Anthony Loycano (1-3), 145 pounds; Lawrence's Aaron Blanco (1-0), 155 pounds.
