Harold Conrad, a spokesman for Inter-Continental-Promotions has announced
that the Championhsip Fight will take place on the set date, but the site is now Lewiston, Maine.

Local Maine fight promoter, Sam Michael will handle the promotions for the
site. Mr. Michaels will pay the promoters $200,000 for the rights to
'Live Gate Receipts', in return for staging the event.

Mr. Michaels stated the St. Dominic's Arena is a 4200 seating capacity
facility. With additional temporary seating, the capacity could reach
close to 5500.

Mr. Michaels said the prices of the tickets will be $100, $50 and $25.

With an anticipated sell out, Mr. Michaels expects to realize a profit
of $25,000.
