EliteXC News: Brothers Frank Shamrock vs. Ken Shamrock Possible For April
After the whole Kimbo Slice incident, EliteXC is at it again looking to promote a Bro vs. Bro, Frank and Ken Shamrock event, possibly in April of 2009. The two adopted brothers have been at odds with each other, at least in public, for years now, making the fight a logical progression in the two veteran fighters careers.
Frank Shamrock told ESPN:
“We’ve both signed a contract to fight each other … Ken is down with it. We talked about it two years ago, and we’ve agreed materially to fight.”
“Will the fight happen? Absolutely”
“The fight has a cool hook … Brothers beating each other up. Everyone wants to see that.”
Elite XC head of operations Jeremy Lappen:
“They’re talking about doing it and we’re interested in the fight … It’s a storyline everyone can relate to, Cain versus Abel.”
