LFA 64 takes place at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Friday (Apr. 26, 2019) at 9 p.m. ET live on AXS TV. The vacant lightweight title is on the line as Harvey Park battles Demarques Jackson.
Park (11-2) has won nine of his last 10 fights including a first-round TKO win over top prospect Jaleel Willis at LFA 58 in January. The 33-year-old’s lone loss during that stretch was to Hubbard, who he suffered a unanimous decision setback against at LFA 39 in May of 2018. Jackson (10-2) has won five of his last six fights including a first-round submission win over Bobby Lee at LFA 56 in his promotional debut. The 28-year-old trains out of Hardknocks MMA with his teammates Jason Jackson and Tyler Ray who are also on this card.
Here’s my interview with Park
Speaking of Jackson, he faces his third opponent in the co-main event in Scott Futrell
Jackson (8-3) was first set to face fellow Contender Series alum Anthony Adams before he was pulled from the card. Then UFC veteran Joe Gigliotti stepped up on short notice before doctors wouldn’t clear him to fight this week either. Now the Hardknocks MMA product faces Futrell in a 180-pound catchweight fight instead of welterweight. The 28-year-old holds a win over current UFC welterweight Dhiego Lima and has won four of his last five fights. Futrell (11-8) makes his LFA debut on short notice and looks to snap a two fight skid. The 27-year-old holds a win over Bellator veteran Dakota Cochrane, who he defeated last July.
