Tyrone Spong vs. Angel DeAnda targeted for WSOF 4 on Aug. 10


Tyrone Spong's next foray into mixed martial arts should come on Aug. 10, on the night of World Series of Fighting 4, according to company president Ray Sefo.

Sefo said that Spong is confirmed for the bout during a Thursday conference call to publicize WSOF 3.

He added that Spong would likely face Angel DeAnda. The two had been set up against each other in a bout originally scheduled for June 14, but Spong decided to withdraw after visa issues precluded him from entering the United States in enough time to conduct a full MMA training camp with his team, the Blackzilians. Instead, he elected to fight in the upcoming Glory 9 kickboxing event on June 22 in New York.

"Those two were matched up originally, so I don't see why that should change in August," Sefo said.

DeAnda has a career record of 11-2, and the fight will mark his WSOF debut.

Spong is one of the most decorated kickboxers to cross over into mixed martial arts, with a career mark of 69-6-1 with 1 no contest. He hold career victories over Peter Aerts and Remy Bonjasky, among others.

He made his MMA debut at WSOF 1, knocking out Travis Bartlett in the first round.

According to Sefo, WSOF 4 will take place at Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif.
