Ft. YATES, N.D. – Native American fighters Silas Ortley and Nick Runningbear are set to fight for the Native American Boxing Council’s (NABC) Welterweight title on September 18 at the Prairie Knights Casino & Lodge in Ft. Yates, North Dakota. 
Runningbear and Ortley are no strangers to each other in the ring, having faced off twice in 2007, with each boxer having won once. The upcoming ‘rubber match’ will be extra motivation for both competitors to win the Title.    
Ortley, whose record is 4-8 with no draws, is looking forward to the battle. Runningbear, whose record is 4-3 with no draws, has been patiently waiting for a shot at this unique championship, as well.
Runningbear’s last fight was in Madison Square Garden in New York in June, having lost to Glen Tappia, while Ortley’s last contest was at the Target Center in Minneapolis in December having lost to Dave Peterson.  
The NABC is a professional boxing organization for Native American Boxers, and ranks Native fighters who have joined their organization, with an opportunity to fight for a Title in their respective weight divisions.  
The NABC is also involved with Native American amateur boxing as well. In May the organization held its first Northern Nationals in Gordon, Nebraska and will culminate with the Native American Amateur Nationals in Albuquerque, New Mexico on October 14, 15, and 16.
