Cage Warriors 49: preliminary card
THE PRELIMS for Cage Warriors 49 in Wales will feature local favourites Kris Edwards (pictured), Daniel Thomas, Dino Gambatesa and Martin McDonough, as well as a host of other up-and-coming and established stars from the UK and Ireland.
Cage Warriors 49, the organisation’s debut event in Wales, will take place at St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Saturday, October 27.
In addition to the three bouts already confirmed – Cathal Pendred versus Bruno Carvalho, Rosi Sexton versus Sheila Gaff and Greg Loughran versus Tim Newman – three more main card bouts are still to be announced.
However, Cage Warriors officials have now revealed the make-up of the preliminary card, which consists of six more exciting tussles.
Having made a successful 125lbs debut against Brian Hyslop at Cage Warriors 48: London back in July, Europe’s number three flyweight Kris Edwards (8-3-0) will aim to stretch his unbeaten streak to four fights against Mark Platts (10-8-0).
Platts, a Newcastle native ranked fourth in the UK, will be eager to bounce back from his loss to Neil Seery at Cage Warriors 47: Dublin in June.
Two highly-rated Welsh bantamweights will collide when Martin McDonough (8-4-0) faces Dino Gambatesa (8-7-0), while Irish lightweight prospect Merv Mulholland (9-4-0) will clash with Welsh veteran Daniel Thomas (19-8-1).
Also on the Cage Warriors 49 preliminary card, Kevin Reed (8-15-0) faces Lee Caers (7-2-0) at welterweight and rising stars Sam Gilbert (6-2-0) and Brett Johns (3-0-0) will meet in a featherweight bout.
