The trash talking “Certified G” looks to get gold as he bids to dethrone Alex Hammerstone and end his 535-day reign as champion in Philadelphia on April 8th.

Emerging as a top ranked competitor, with controversial clashes with Jacob Fatu and a recent high-profile win over Mance Warner, Real1 was the finalist in last year’s Battle RIOT, a match he continues to protest and claim he won.

Exhausting league officials politicking for a title fight, matchmakers have finally acquiesced.

Now that big bout is official as Hammerstone takes on a different type of challenger than any before. Known for his gift to gab, will Real1 get inside Hammerstone’s head with his trash talking?

Could Real1 distract Hammerstone and create a critical opening to topple the Phoenix powerhouse and claim the World Heavyweight Championship?

See Real1 vs. Hammerstone for the first time ever live in Philadelphia on Saturday, April 8 at the 2300 Arena. Buy tickets at
