St. Ann, MO – This past Saturday, the St. Ann Community Center was abuzz with excitement as Fight Sports STL hosted an exhilarating evening of exhibition boxing, professional boxing, MMA, and kickboxing.

The main event

The main event of the evening was a professional boxing match between Charles Hackmann, weighing in at 224.9 pounds, and Dusty Chandler, who weighed in at 368 pounds. Despite a daunting 143-pound weight disadvantage, Hackmann’s determination and skill shone through, leading him to a dominant victory by unanimous decision.

From the moment the fighters entered the ring, the atmosphere was electric.
