Weigh-in results: Cage Warriors 62
Neil Seery’s CWFC flyweight title defence against Ulysses Gomez has been removed from tomorrow’s card for Cage Warriors 62.
Approximately three hours before today’s weigh-ins in Newcastle, Gomez collapsed while using a treadmill to cut weight and was taken by ambulance to hospital. Having received medical treatment, the fighter was later discharged and is now doing well.
Gomez was keen for tomorrow’s bout against Seery to go ahead nevertheless, but CWFC officials have taken the decision to cancel it in the interests of the fighter’s health and safety. Seery will be paid his purse in full.
“It’s unfortunate that we’ve had to cancel our main event, particularly for the fighters and the fans, but this was undoubtedly the correct decision. We don’t take any risks when it comes to the safety of fighters,” said Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan.
“I’m glad that Ulysses Gomez has recovered well since this afternoon and I hope we can reschedule Neil Seery’s first title defence to take place early next year instead.”
As a result of the cancellation, the meeting of Curt Warburton and Wesley Murch will now top the Cage Warriors 62 bill, with the clash of Alex Enlund and Danny Lawson being promoted from the prelims.
Four fighters - Ian Entwistle, Laura Howarth, Kerry Hughes and Frankie Slater - missed weight today and were subsequently fined accordingly.
