Coty "Ox" Wheeler aka the "Reservation Sensation" always elevates his game when fighting in front of his adoring home crowd; last year he submitted tough Mike Chupa after a slick series of sub attempts.

Recently married and finishing his college degree, Wheeler, has made the time to train for this his nineteenth professional fight. Facing Wheeler is Arizona's athletic Freddie Lux who has only lost once in his pro career.

Several other exciting fights round out the rest of the main card including Jackson's Nick Urso versus Force of One of Clovis' Gilbert Cuhen, Clint Roberts vs Geronimo Gonzalez, Johann Perez vs Adam McGurk, Adam Gonzalez vs Ricki Thompson, and Landon Vanata vs Adrian Apodaca. These six well-matched pro fights follow five barn-burners on the amateur opening card.

The Inaugural Mescalero Warrior Challenge in 2011 was a sell out slugfest. the second chapter should be no different. Expect a native themed entrance by ever popular favorite son Wheeler, a stacked card of talent, and a first rate production, all at one of New Mexico's grandest destinations, the Inn of the Mountain Gods in scenic Ruidoso.

Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased at or You can also call 575-464-7508 for more information.
