On Friday, April 6, Victoria kickboxer Tim “Pacman” Packer will be fighting for an International Kickboxing Federation (IKF) world title in the 127-pound (57 kg) featherweight class.

He currently owns the Canadian title that he won in his most recent fight that took place at Western Speedway at Summer Slugfest VII on Friday, September 8.

On April 6, at the fight card dubbed Friday Night Fights, Packer will be up against Los Angeles-based fighter Daniel Strahan, who sports a record of 9-0.

It will be a five-round tilt.

At Summer Slugfest VII, Packer also won his second consecutive Dillon Brown award for most exciting fight of the night.

“I know he is kind of a flashy fighter, so he is going to want to keep his range and throw some spin kicks and flashy kicks,” said Packer of his opponent.

But Packer is preparing for anything, using a range of sparring partners at Peterec’s Kickboxing Club.

Asked about his fitness Packer said, “Feeling fit right now, training six days a week, and running every day, so I am working hard for this.”

The fight card will take place at Eagle Ridge Centre in Langford.
