Battle Royale - Wallhead vs Blanchard Preview

22/03/2008

Another of the headline UK vs USA fights of the inaugural event for Cage Warriors in the USA is Jim Wallhead (12-4-0) vs Charles Blanchard (6-1-0) in a Welterweight bout.

Wallhead is a two time British Champion and is famous for winning the 2h2h 183lbs Road to Japan tournament in 2006 and is a popular figure with CWFC fans in the UK. Wallhead made his name due to his high impact mix of slams, takedowns and punishing ground and pound. With wins over UFC veterans Jason Tan & Steve Lynch, Wallhead has rightfully found his way into the top 10 European rankings and will be looking for his first win stateside on March 29th.

However, Charles Blanchard is in the midst of a three fight winning streak and will be gunning for the biggest win of his career to date when he faces Wallhead at Battle Royale. A native of Florida, and a regular on the local circuit, Blanchard has torn through his opposition with all his wins coming in the first round and his only defeat being at the hands of veteran UFC TUF 6 veteran Ben Saunders.

Blanchard has been preparing for this fight by training with the American Top Team and will no doubt be looking to use his wrestling prowess to take down Wallhead and use his ground and pound which has finished off several previous opponents.
