With just a week to go until their second M-1 Challenge Group A clash, “Team England”“are pleased to announce a replacement fighter for their injured Light-Heavyweight Tom Blackledge. As the Team Quannum fighter Danny Giblin (3-2-0) has been drafted in by Head Coach Dave Butlin to face “Team France” on June 5th at the M-1 Challenge: Fifth Edition show at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas, USA

Although Giblin has recently fought at Middleweight, he is a former Light-Heavyweight and has been training with Team England during their open training sessions at the Quannum Gym. Despite his record, the Team England management and coaching staff are confident he will make a solid impression on his M-1 debut when he faces the unbeaten Frenchman Johan Romming (3-0-0) next week in the United States.

A veteran of the Quannum Fighting Championship, Total Combat and Cage Rage Contenders, Giblin holds wins over the Dutchman Ricardo van Kooten and the Scottish fighter Graham Turner. Whilst he has spent the previous four years training with Team Quannum, which is home to Dave, Ian, and Andy Butlin. Plus Giblin has also worked on his Muay Thai game at Bad Company and Chokdee Muay Thai.

When asked for his thoughts on his call-up to the team, Giblin told “I’m feeling massively confident, I’ve done all I can in preparation, I know Team England have been preparing very hard, their hard work paid off last time and can only be built upon for this set of fights. I would like to thank Dave (Butlin) for giving me this opportunity and all my training partners.”

Giblin will now join Ian Butlin, Simon Phillips, Matt Thorpe and Rob Broughton in the United States as Team England look to build upon their stunning 4-1 win over Team Japan last month, with a victory over Team France in their best-of-five M-1 Challenge series next week in the United States
