Harvey Park vs. Demarques Jackson interim lightweight title bout headlines LFA 64

For the fourth time, LFA will touch down in South Dakota next month, and an interim belt will be up for grabs.

In the main event, Harvey Park (11-2) will take on Demarques Jackson (10-2) for the interim lightweight title. Current lightweight champion Austin Hubbard, who won the vacant belt in December, is out for the time being taking “time off,” according to a statement from LFA President Ed Soares. The Park-Jackson winner will meet Hubbard later this year to unify the titles.

LFA 64 is set for April 26 at Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls. The main card airs on AXS TV.

In addition, four other bouts have been announced for the main card: Anthony Adams (8-1) meets Jason Jackson (8-3) at welterweight; Taylor Johnson (5-0) takes on Tyler Vogel (8-4) at middleweight; Jordon Larson (9-5) vs. Dionisio Ramirez (7-5) is set for a 165-pound catchweight bout; and Sam Garrett (3-1) fights Tyler Ray (3-1) at 170 pounds.

Park, a U.S. Navy veteran and current sheriff’s deputy in Curry County, N.M., made his LFA debut in May 2018, but lost a decision to Hubbard – setting up a potential rematch if he wins the interim belt next month. After the loss to Hubbard, he outworked Le’Ville Simpson at LFA 53 this past November, and in January stopped Jaleel Willis with a first-round TKO in the LFA 58 main event.

Jackson has three straight wins, including two under the LFA banner. In April 2018, he stopped Hamilton Ash with a first-round TKO at LFA 37. He got a shot at the next level at Bellator 204 and took a split decision from Bryce Logan. Then this past December, he submitted Bobby Lee with a guillotine choke at LFA 56.

The LFA 64 lineup currently includes:

  • Harvey Park vs. Demarques Jackson – for interim lightweight title
  • Anthony Adams vs. Jason Jackson
  • Taylor Johnson vs. Tyler Vogel
  • Jordon Larson vs. Dionisio Ramirez
  • Sam Garrett vs. Tyler Ray
