Warrior Promotions are sad to announce the Welterweight bout between ’ Judo’ Jim Wallhead (14-5-0) and the Ultimate Force Welterweight Champion Jason Ball (11-5-0) has been cancelled.

This ‘Superfight’ was due to be one of the main attractions of the M-1 Challenge show on the 27th of September. However Warrior Promotions was informed today by Ball’s management team, that the Doncaster based fighter has been forced to withdraw from the fight due to a ‘Work related injury’. Warrior Promotions are naturally saddened by this and apologise to those fans who were looking forward to this bout.

Nevertheless Warrior Promotions have started to look for a replacement and have confirmed that Wallhead will be fighting on September 27th despite this frustrating and increasingly common situation.

If any experienced MMA teams, agents or fighters are interested in this bout please contact the CWFC team to discuss terms and conditions.

With a potential global audience looking on thanks to M-1’s worldwide TV deals, this could be a golden chance for a fighter to gain vital exposure for their MMA career
