Boehm looks to continue Seven Feathers success CageSport 63

Grant Clark -- a month ago

Few fighters have been as dominant at the Seven Feathers Casino Resort than Kevin Boehm. Two fights, two impressive triumphs at the Canyonville, Ore. venue.

Boehm will now look to make it 3 for 3 when he faces his toughest challenge in veteran A.J. Bryant at CageSport 63 on Saturday, May7.

“It’s a good feeling,” said Boehm, who fights out of nearby Eugene, Ore., about competing at the Seven Feathers Casino Resort.“(It’s) only a short trip from home. I’m getting to bring a lot of the people that support me. I’m always excited when I can tell people that they should buy a ticket to the fight instead of hope that the fight ends up on the internet one day.”

Tickets for the event are $45 and $55 and can be purchased online at, in person at the Seven Feathers Casino Resort Gift Gallery or by calling 1-800-514-3849.

Boehm, a former CageSport title holder, brings a two-fight winning streak into the contest and has won four out of his last five fights.

“Training for this fight has been going great. I have been working with many specialists in their fields from conditioning, striking and grappling,” Boehm said. “I’ve also had the honor to be getting ready for this fight with other guys from American Top Team who are highly skilled training partners like Brent Primus, Ricky Simon, Journey Newson and a lot of other good guys with names you’ll get to know soon enough.”

Boehm (8-4) has been one of the most consistent fighters for CageSport since making his promotional debut in 2018 with a second-round victory via KO over Travis Cavalli at CageSport 51 – the inaugural CageSport event at the Seven Feathers Casino Resort.

He has won four out of his six career fights for the promotion, highlighted by his CageSport featherweight championship title win over Talon Hammons at CageSport 58.

Prior to his title victory, Boehm won his second consecutive bout at Seven Feathers Casino Resort with a quick first-round KO ofJason Gray at CageSport 57.

“It’s pretty awesome (fighting there). I really appreciate the Seven Feathers venue actually,” Boehm said. “It accommodates all my wants and needs for my pre-fight rituals. Cool fact, I have my greatgrand father and some other family members from my father’s side buried in the cemetery attached to the casino. So I enjoy going out, paying respects and I like the thought that maybe they’re watching me fight and keeping me safe. I’ve gotten two quick KOs without taking any damage there.”

After dropping the CageSport featherweight title to Austin Springer by decision at CageSport 59 in October of 2019, Boehme xperienced a 26-month fight hiatus due to the COVID-pandemic before returning to the cage in December with a win over Anthony Jimenez for King of the Cage.

“Returning to the cage was such a happy moment in my life,” Boehm said. “We’re back on track. I trained throughout the entire layoff, waiting for the moment to put it all together in the cage. So yeah, the feeling of getting back into the cage in front of the crowd testing myself again was great. I felt the love for the sport that I’ve missed for so long.”

Boehm is coming off a win over Jason Powers at a King of the Cage events on March 31, winning by KO in just 30 seconds.

“We took a risk. We made a goal and we got it,” Boehm said about his victory over Powers. “I was happy to finish the fight fast and hurry back to work. I fought Thursday and was back in the gym sparring on Saturday. Shoot, if we can do something like a few more times, I’d be happy.”

Bryant (11-6) is appearing on a CageSport card for the first time since losing to current UFC fighter and former multiple-time CageSport champion Julian Erosa at CageSport 60.

“Dude’s a veteran and he takes the tough fights,” said Boehm about Bryant. “His last opponent (Georgiy Eyvas) at LXF is a beast. A.J.’s last time at CageSport he fought Julian Erosa and I look up to Julian. Nothing but respect for A.J. and I have a lot of respect for the camps he trains out of with Josh Barnett and Chad George. They’re two highly decorated fighters and coaches. So, I know A.J. has the tools that I have to respect.”
