Published 12:02 pm Friday, November 19, 2010

FLOWOOD — Two days before the next big fight of his career, Vicksburg’s Jeremiah Riggs felt his training had him primed for tonight’s mixed martial arts bout with Biloxi’s James Sharp.

Riggs (7-4) will be a part of a 12-bout card that will be featured on Showtime’s Strikeforce/Challengers series at the Jackson Convention Complex.

Riggs’ bout will not be included on the Showtime telecast, but his fight with Sharp is one of the undercard’s top matchups along with Wes Shivers (7-1) of Brandon battling Goldman Butler (1-3) of Tupelo.
