ACB 88 is getting bigger and bigger, with two more blockbuster fights announced for Australian fight fans on June 16th as Marcin Held makes his ACB debut, taking on Australia’s own Callan Potter in a mouth-watering lightweight bout. A heavyweight showdown between Canada’s Tanner Boser and American Chase Gormley has also been announced for the card.
Australia’s own Callan Potter (16-6) will make his ACB debut riding an impressive eight fight winning streak, leading to eight consecutive finishes on the Australian MMA circuit. His impressive style has seen none of his twenty-two professional bouts head to the judges’ scorecards.
His opponent needs no introduction. Former Bellator and UFC star Marcin Held (23-7) is set to make his highly anticipated ACB debut in Brisbane, where he will be looking to make his mark on the lightweight division. The Polish jiu-jitsu wizard has shared the cage with the likes of Michael Chandler, Diego Sanchez and Alexander Sarnavskiy during his ten year professional career. On June 16th, the next chapter begins in Australia.
Chase Gormley (14-7) will look to return to the win column following a two fight losing streak on his first venture to Australia, with the 34-year-old heavyweight looking to make an impact on the ACB 265lbs division. Gormley is no stranger to the big stage having shared the cage with Brendan Schaub and Stefan Struve during a brief spell with the UFC and is entering the eleventh year of his professional MMA career.
His opponent, hailing from Canada will be 26-year-old Tanner Boser (14-4). After kicking off his ACB career with a pair of decision losses, the heavyweight bounced back with consecutive victories over Dave Cryer and DJ Linderman. “The Bulldozer” has competed in Dubai, St. Petersburg, Montreal and Manchester since signing for ACB but will head down under for the first time in June.
ACB 88 marks the promotion’s second visit to Australia, with ACB 76 taking place on the Gold Coast on December 9th 2017. It will mark the first major MMA event to hit Brisbane since 2016 and with the promotion promising huge fight announcements in the coming weeks there are plenty of reasons for Australian fight fans to get excited.
