A WELTERWEIGHT contest between Bola Omoyele (pictured) and Vincent del Guerra is one of five bouts that officials have today confirmed for the bill for Cage Warriors 56.

The event, which is set for Saturday, July 6, will take place at The Forum in Kentish Town, London, England. Tickets, priced from just £25 (plus booking fee) are now available HERE.

Also featuring on the main card will be a middleweight clash between Brett Bassett and Denniston Sutherland, as well as a host of other exciting fights that will be announced in due course.

Omoyele (6-1), who featured on The Smashes series of The Ultimate Fighter last year as a member of Team UK, recently signed an exclusive contract with Cage Warriors Fighting Championship.

With 5 TKOs and one submission, the 31-year-old Londoner has taken all six of his career victories by stoppage, five of which have come in the first round.

Omoyele said: “Thanks to God for giving me the strength and health for this fight, and to Cage Warriors and my management for bringing me on board.

“I’m excited like a child to be finally getting into the cage again and showcasing my skill-set. Vincent is going to have his work cut out for him.”

Hailing from Marseille in France, del Guerra (20-8), will be fighting for the 29th time in his professional career, despite having only turned 23 in February.

The versatile del Guerra has 17 stoppage wins on his record - nine by submission, eight by (T)KO - and has vowed to make a real impression when he makes his Cage Warriors debut on July 6.

“This is a very big opportunity for me,” said del Guerra. “I will put on a great fight with my opponent and show everyone that I’m one of the most dangerous welterweights in Europe.”

Meanwhile, following a recent injury lay-off , Brett Bassett (8-3) will return to action for the first time since his spectacular KO of Mike Ling last September to take on experienced CWFC veteran middleweight Denniston Sutherland (19-9).

On the prelims, Fabio Ferrari (5-2) and Brett Sizeland (6-2) will also meet in a middleweight bout, lightweights Brad Wheeler (9-9) and Jason Cooledge (8-4) will clash, while unbeaten featherweight prospects Chad Griffiths (4-0) and Arnold Allen (3-0) will be in opposite corners for their Cage Warriors debuts.
