A REAL FIGHT – “FIGHTING AGAINST CANCER” By Will Hammond:


Josh Haynes is the Full Contact Fighting Federation HWT Champ! He has stepped in to a MMA cage and walked out with the championship belt. THAT WAS EASY, compared to the fight he is in every single day, you see 6 months ago, Josh’s 16 month old son Thor, was diagnosed with brain cancer. He immediately had to have a tumor removed from his brain, a cancerous growth 1/2 the size of man’s fist was taken out, and Thor fought through it. Thor Haynes is a fighter just like his Dad, and so far has fought off the cancer, and continues to fight through the chemotherapy on a regular basis.

I met Josh Haynes in the locker-room the hours before we both made out debut fights, even though we are both heavyweights who were likely to face one another someday, we became fast friends. Josh has insurance, but even with insurance his share of the bills is already well over $300,000. A small price to pay for your son’s life, but a huge mounting bill none-the-less.

Anthony Hamlett (Former Hook & Shoot 145lbs Champ) has organized a fighting promotion to assist Josh’s family through this financial hardship. “Fighting against Cancer” will be held February 15th at the Boys and Girls Center in Portland Oregon at (5250 NE MLK Jr Blvd). Fights will start at 7 pm sharp. 10% of the proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club, all the rest will go to the Haynes family. All fighters, judges, workers, etc. will be donating their time and their efforts that night. (NW fighters wishing to compete contact Anthony at ICEE138@AOL.COM

We are looking for sponsors and donations, we have a charity fund set up, and donations can be made through the PAY-PAL account ThorHaynes@charter.net All donor/sponsors over $100 will be recognized on a banner the night of the event!

If you are TIRED of hearing all the bad things about our sport, then this is a time to pull together, and give young Thor Haynes a chance to win a fight that we have all been lucky enough to avoid!

I look forward to hearing from you, Fight on!

Will “BIG Medicine” Hammond
