Tickets for Strikeforce Challengers 16: "Villante vs. Larkin" at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington, on June 24, 2011, will go on sale to the general public this week on Friday, May 6, at 10:00 a.m. PST.
Fans can purchase tickets directly at the ShoWare Center ticket office, Ticketmaster online and the official Strikeforce website.
Gian Villante is a young, much-hyped former Ring of Combat heavyweight champion. The 25-year old-striker was last seen taking on the upset specialist, Chad Griggs, at Strikeforce: "Fedor vs. Silva" back in February.
The "Gravedigger" handed Villante his second career loss with a first round technical knockout and Villante is looking to rebound.
Lorenz Larkin is another extremely promising light heavyweight prospect.
"The Monsoon" made big waves in his Strikeforce debut just over one month ago at Strikeforce Challengers 15. Larkin scored a very impressive second round TKO against K-1 kickboxing veteran Scott Lighty and displayed a wide assortment of flashy striking techniques in the process.
Larkin was immediately signed to a four-fight Strikeforce contract afterwards and he's ready to find out where he stands in the light heavyweight division.
