More Than A Name: Top-Ranked Leland Race Gets his Shot at Ricky Cruz and his MO Belt, Apr. 30
Posted by Ben Simon on April 28, 2016
Ricky Cruz lays his MWR Missouri Heavyweight Championship on the line against “The Legacy” Leland Race at New Breed Wrestling on April 30. The card is at Liberty Park Convention Hall in Sedalia.
Leland Race is no stranger to the State title. Although this is his first shot, his father Harley Race was the first and the last man to hold promoter Sam Muchnick’s version of the title in 1972 and then 1986.
It’s more than just a name for Race though. Leland pinned Jon Webb in November and Karim Brigante in March. He has been ranked in our Top 10 list since its inception in late 2014.
Ricky Cruz’s ninth defense could be the junior Race’s birthright claim.
#4Evan Morris vs. Steve Fender

“Miss Natural” Heather Patera & Stacey O’Brien vs. Lucy Mendez & Miss Monica Passeri
Bell at 7. Tickets are $10.
