Brad "One Punch" Pickett Aims to Entertain on Bodog Fight: Costa Rica Combat

Brad "One Punch" Pickett Aims to Entertain on Bodog Fight: Costa Rica Combat

For Immediate Release

April 23, 2007

Find out if England's Brad "One Punch" Pickett can live up to his nickname when the hit mixed martial arts series Bodog Fight: Costa Rica Combat continues this Tuesday, April 24th at 11 p.m. / 10 p.m. Central on ION Television.

The 29-year-old former Cage Rage British featherweight champion sports a professional MMA record of nine wins and two defeats and takes on newcomer J.R. Sims of Las Vegas. The 23-year-old Sims has just one win and one loss under his belt, but has a strong boxing pedigree and self-proclaimed "heavy" hands.

"He'll probably want to fight me standing up," predicts Sims. "That's okay, because I hit pretty hard, so if he wants to play I'm more than ready!"

Pickett, who has ten amateur boxing fights to his credit, doesn't mind going toe-to-toe and says he just wants to put on a good show at the beautiful outdoor ring on the sunny shores of Costa Rica.

"I love to entertain," says Pickett. "That's why I've created a unique ring walk where I enter as a `pikey', complete with braces (suspenders) and Trilby hat to the song "Wallop" by Chas & Dave. Fans love it."

Fans should also enjoy watching Florida's Rafael "The Claw" Dias and Sweden's Sami Aziz tussle in ring. The 27-year-old Dias trains with American Top Team, and has seven wins and just one defeat, while the 34-year-old Aziz is undefeated in two professional bouts. Despite his light MMA record, Aziz warns that he is no stranger to competition.

"I've wrestled twice at the Olympic Games, and was also ranked number one on the Swedish National Boxing Team in the 71-kilogram weight class."

In addition to being broadcast on ION Television, all episodes of the series will be available worldwide through video streaming at, with behind-the-scenes exclusives, fighter bios and additional footage only available online.
