Cage Warriors 62: Fight card update

THE BILL for Cage Warriors 62 in Newcastle is taking shape following today’s addition of a further seven bouts – including two women’s bantamweight contests – to the December 7 card.

However, Brett Johns’ first CWFC bantamweight title defence will have to wait until 2014, with the champion forced to withdraw from his clash with James Brum at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena due to injury. A replacement opponent is now being lined up for Brum, but it’s hoped that Johns will be fit to put his belt up for grabs early next year.

Cage Warriors 62 in Newcastle, which will see Neil Seery defend his CWFC flyweight strap against Ulysses Gomez, will also feature the CWFC debut of local star Curt Warburton, after it was announced yesterday that he has signed an exclusive deal with the promotion. Warburton’s opponent will be revealed in due course.

Elsewhere, after his split decision loss to Brett Johns in the final of the CWFC bantamweight title tournament in Cardiff last month, 21-year-old Jordan Desborough (pictured) will return to action on December 7 to take on the highly-touted Cory Tait, who recently signed exclusively to CWFC.

In middleweight action, Leeroy Barnes will be keen to return to winning ways against Irish veteran Ronan McKay, who holds notable victories over Cathal Pendred, Lee Chadwick and Henry Fadipe. Meanwhile, Chris Scott will also go in search of his first Cage Warriors win against Steve Dinsdale, who returns to the 185lbs division after a short stint at welterweight.

An exciting featherweight bout will see Danny Lawson aim to get his Cage Warriors career off to a successful start against Alex Enlund, who impressively disposed of Sebastian Romanowski at CWFC 58 in August. That bout will be preceded by the meeting of flyweights Shaj Haque and Mark Connor, both of whom will be eager to rebound from losses in their most recent CWFC outings.

In women’s bantamweight action, 18-year-old prospect Agnieszka Niedzwiedz will take on Kerry Hughes, while Commonwealth judo silver medallist Emma Delaney will face TUF 18 contestant Laura Howarth.

More Cage Warriors 62 bouts are still to be announced, so keep track of us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news and updates.
