Duluth, Minn. - He's won six straight fights and T-Rex is hungry for his seventh as Duluth's RJ "T-Rex" Laase (10-1) returns to the ring to battle veteran James Wayka (16-11-1) of Bowler, Wisconsin on March 15th at Grand Casino in Hinckley.

Back in January at that very venue, Laase defeated Justin Jones by majority decision. Wayka and T-Rex were supposed to battle last October, but that fell through. Wayka dropped his last fight, which was against Laase's stablemate Andy Kolle and for T-Rex...this bout is personal.

"He called me out after Andy stopped him in North Dakota about a year and a half ago. He went up to my manager and said 'put RJ in with me at a smaller weight as 154 pounds is too big for me and I can show you that I can still fight,' so I guess we will find out, says RJ Laase.
