Saturday 8th September – Devenish Complex, Belfast, N. Ireland.
The main event sees a bantamweight title fight between ZKJ’s Ciaran Breslin and Fight Academy Ireland’s Glenn McVeigh for the Cage Warriors Academy Ireland bantamweight Title.
With Brent Primus already having one up on Micheal Chandler, he is very keen to prove his victory wasn’t a fluke by trying to persuade Chandler to sign on the dotted line for a second bout.
Chandler, who is just after securing a new deal with Bellator, has been pressured by Primus to sign a bout agreement. The expletives were in full flow, as Brent is wanting to jump back in after recovering from a multitude of niggling injuries. This will be his first fight since taking the belt off “Iron” with a 1st round TKO in NYC in June 2017.
