Four more join CWFC roster
Cage Warriors Fighting Championship can today confirm that four more fighters have inked deals to compete exclusively for the promotion.
Jack Hermansson (pictured), Doni Miller, Julien Boussuge and Mike Johnson have each put pen to paper on five-fight contracts, which will commit them to CWFC for a minimum period of 18 months.
Hermansson (5-2) joins the promotion following a two-fight stint with Bellator, for whom he signed on the back of Cage Warriors wins over Ali Arish and Mike Ling in 2011.
The Swede, who fights out of Norway, has taken all five of his professional wins inside the distance, four of which have come via KO.
“I’m really glad to be back with the best organisation in Europe,” said 25-year-old Hermansson. “This is the place for me right now and I’m looking forward to showing who the best European middleweight is.”
Miller (5-2), a featherweight who plans to move to the bantamweight division in 2014, is an exciting prospect who fights out of Scotland’s renowned Dinky Ninjas camp.
Despite suffering a loss to the undefeated Arnold Allen at CWFC 61 last month, which ended a run of four straight victories, Miller impressed having taken the fight as a late-notice replacement.
The 25-year-old Scot said: “I’m absolutely ecstatic about signing with one of the biggest organisations in the world and I’m really looking forward to being involved in some exciting scraps against the best of the CWFC bantamweight division.”
Boussuge (10-3) also made his promotional debut at CWFC 61, overcoming Damien Brown in Amman, Jordan, to secure his tenth professional victory.
The 32-year-old French lightweight holds other notable wins over the likes of Ivica Truscek and Nayeb Hezam.
“It’s a real honour for me to have signed with Cage Warriors,” Boussuge said. “I’ll be looking to challenge CWFC’s best lightweights in order to get to the very top of the division.”
Johnson (9-6) is a highly-ranked English welterweight who’ll be keen to move up the rankings when he makes his CWFC debut shortly.
A 30-year-old Londoner, Johnson has dropped just one loss in his last five outings, which came at the hands of Wayne Murrie in a welterweight title bout for domestic British promotion BAMMA.
Johnson said: “I want to thank Cage Warriors and my management for giving me this opportunity. I can’t wait to get in there and showcase my skills for the CWFC fans around the world.”
