Looking for first pro fight for my two sons.

I have two sons ages 21 and 23. I've been training them since they were baby's. They live in the south and I'm here in the suburbs of Detroit. I want to set them up with their first pro fight right here in Michigan. I need direction and number so that I can get a fight for them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

A bit offtopic, but keep us updated on how things are going, I would love to hear how their first fight went, wouldn't mind seeing a video too.

There are numerous posts about this. You need to find a solid gym, from there the instructors will know whether they're ready or not. Wayyy too many up and comers are too eager to fight when they don't have the necessary tools. I've promoted shows and the competition is fierce. The shittiest fighter on the circuit could still whup anyone who's an amateur. We had one of our best Muay Thai students get chocked out in three minutes by an "average" fighter in a sanctioned pro fight. Pretty embarassing for all of us. BUT the rest of our fighters won that night so it balanced out...haha!

There are tons of shows in the South, West Coast, and Canada. Should be local shows in Michigan you can look into.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Thank you Leed and No_Mercy for your post.
That was good advice about getting my boys into a solid gym and let the instructors check out their abilities so they can get a proper matchup. They have been waiting there whole life for this moment and I have been away from them for a number of years and they tell me they have been training hard. I think I will find a good local gym here in the suburbs of Mo Town and send for them this summer and watch them compete with the gyms best in there weight class and go from there. I need to make sure they are matched up properly and not being set up for someone else's win.
Thank you for the good advice. The advice I have given my children as they have grown from children to adults is; "It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles." Peace
