Yet another pair of exciting bouts have been added to ACB 88, with Aussie Trent Girdham taking on Guam’s Kyle Reyes, whilst Charlie Alaniz and Shannon Ross are set to compete in an all-Australian flyweight bout.
At just twenty-years-old, Trent Girdham (8-1) is an elite prospect in Australia. Unbeaten on home territory, the Sydney-based man has claimed four submission victories in his eight professional bouts. After claiming a victory on his promotional debut at ACB 76 last December, submitting Tim Moore in the second round with a slick armlock, Girdham went on to pick up his first professional defeat at ACB 84 against Rany Saadeh, tapping to a first round heel hook.
Fighting out of Las Vegas, by way of Guam in Micronesia, Kyle Reyes (12-5) makes his return to the ACB cage almost eighteen months on from earning the fight of the night award at ACB 51. Having previously fought Australians Alexander Volkanovski and Rory O’Connell, Reyes will be aiming to add to his eight submission victories on June 16th in Brisbane.
Unbeaten on Australian soil, Charlie Alaniz (11-3) is set to make his ACB debut in Brisbane having previously held two flyweight titles on the domestic scene. With four submission wins and three knockouts among his eleven career victories, the Melbourne man will hope to remain his incredible record in home territory.
Having previously competed at bantamweight, 29-year-old Shannon Ross (10-4) has successfully moved to 125lbs, claiming two consecutive victories including a first-round knockout of Ste Nightingale at ACB 76 last December. The heavy handed Ross has demonstrated his knockout credentials, with more than half of his victories coming by way of a stoppage.
