Claggett aims to rebound Friday


2012 was the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese horoscope – a year in which Steve “The Dragon” Claggett (15-2-1 10KO) went 3-0 with 3 knockouts. Now, as we approach the halfway point of the year, look for Claggett to strike quickly in this the Year of the Snake.

Look for the super-lightweight to rebound from his narrow split-decision loss with a rapid combination of Alberta fights starting this Friday in Edmonton. Claggett aims to pick up what he started when he first turned pro – to be a world champion.

It hasn’t been the most auspicious year of Claggett’s career thus far, but observers of his last fight against talented Frenchman Alex Lepelley feel that he was the deserving victor that night. It was in Edmonton where Team Claggett will return Friday May 31 to face Paul Bzdel (4-2-1). Claggett took the time to respond to a few questions from Fightnews Canada about Bzdel, the June homecoming in Calgary, and his designs on the future.
