June 25 — After taking a one-year hiatus, the Iron Pit Fight Team is once again hosting its popular fight night  at Diamond Mountain Casino — the High Desert Brawl.

The brawl is scheduled to take place Aug. 16 and will feature many local fighters who will face opponents from all over the western United States.


According to the team’s coach and event organizer, Rudy Valentine, eight Iron Pit fighters are scheduled to fight right now, but Valentine is still looking for opponents for some of them.


“We’ve got guys coming from Oregon, down south and Nevada, so we’re spread all over … we’ve also, I think, got a team from Idaho that will probably be coming down,” he said.

This the 10th year Iron Horse Gym’s fight team has put on the event.

This year, Perry led the Santa Clara Broncos in home runs for the second year in a row, racking up five during the regular season. He tied for the second highest batting average on the team with a .452 percentage and 16 extra-base hits, including nine doubles and two triples. He boasts 17 two-out RBIs, which is a team-best, and got three RBIs in five games during the 2014 season.
