Anthony Mingioni and David Fitzgerald bring new blood to the Fight For It stage

Newcomers to the Fight For It stage, Anthony Mingioni and David Fitzgerald bring some fresh talent to the promotion in their kickboxing bout at Fight For It XII.

Mingioni trains out of Konquer Martial Arts in Greensboro, under coach Justin Mitchell, and alongside fellow FFI XII competitors Brandon Spencer and Anthony Campbell. Fitzgerald calls Charlotte’s Southern Scrap Nation home, and trains under coach Daniel Jonas, whose in-depth martial arts experience — across MMA, BJJ and Muay Thai — suggests a well-rounded curriculum.

It’s hard to say which man will bring the better game, but this bout proves that the Carolinas’ combat sports crop is as fertile as ever, yielding plenty of new faces for the fight game.
