It’s a sports/meteorology mixed metaphor this weekend, as The Lightning steps aside for Thunder at the Forum, a World Boxing Federation event. The slugfest is headlined by Sarasota native China “The Dragon” Smith (pictured), whose comeback was recently featured in a documentary screened at the Sarasota Film Festival. Smith will need the hometown support as he battles Mike Sheppard for the WBF North American Heavyweight Championship. The co-main event of the evening is a female match, featuring Tampa’s “Fists of Steel” Chevelle Hallback and Mississippi’s Cassandra Lindsey. No one is more excited about Hallback’s match than promoter Jie Chen: “Once the Tampa crowd sees Hallback in a fight, they will quickly understand why she’s one of the best female fighters in the country.” —Brian Frederick
