Apparently K.J. Noons' manager Mark Dion was successful in his hunt for boxing competition for the former EliteXC Lightweight Champion: Noons has two pro boxing bouts scheduled in the next 90 days. He'll first face James Countryman (13-1) on the undercard of the March 21st "3 The Hard Way" pro-am event in Cincinnati, OH. Four weeks later, he'll take on the tough Matt "The Predator" Vanda (39-9) at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN. HT: MMA Weekly
