MMA Platinum Gloves, an amateur tournament run by Nic and Dan Canobbio, has grown from small hotel ballrooms to a college gymnasium to, now, an indoor sports facility.

It took just four events for such growth. Not bad for a state where professional MMA remains illegal.

The fifth fight card for MMA Platinum Gloves (Season 2, Round 2), is scheduled for this Saturday, June 28, at the Sports Arena in St. James.

Here's a look at the latest fight card for the event (not necessarily in bout order):

Catchweights – 140 lbs.: Shaquan Moore vs. John Gillespie

Featherweights: Mark Doyle vs. Danny Ochart

Featherweights: Victor Robinson vs. Paul Geraci

Featherweights: Alan Garcia vs. Marcos Comodo

Lightweights: Robert Rodriguez vs. Rich Appenzeller

Catchweights – 160 lbs.: Jose Rosado vs. Brian Eberhart

Welterweights: Zack Rosado vs. LaRon McCravey
