TONY MACHADO has withdrawn from the CWFC middleweight title tournament after picking up a back injury.

Machado (4-0-0) was due to take on John Phillips in one of the two scheduled quarter-final bouts at Cage Warriors 45 at the HMV Forum in London tomorrow night.

As a result of this late withdrawal, it hasn’t been possible for Cage Warriors to source a suitable replacement fighter so John Phillips will now progress to the semi-finals.

Phillips will still attend tomorrow’s event and although the bout now won’t be going ahead, the Welshman will still receive his agreed purse.

He’ll face the winner of the CWFC 45 meeting of Jack Mason and Chris Fields in the tournament semi-finals.

Victor Cheng and Faycal Hucin, who were both victorious at CWFC Fight Night 3 in Beirut, Lebanon last weekend, will clash in the other semi-final.
