Cage Warriors’ return to London on Saturday, March 24 is billed as ‘Super Saturday’, and with a packed card featuring three title fights, the moniker seems appropriate.
The previous ‘Super Saturday’ event staged by Cage Warriors saw a host of fighters on show who would eventually go on to become UFC stars, including Joanna Jedrzeczyk, Stevie Ray and Jack Marshman.
Now the next generation of Cage Warriors stars will take centre stage, as the promotion returns to the Indigo at The O2 for a packed night of fights in the capital.
“We’re giving these athletes a platform to showcase themselves to a world audience,” said Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan.
“I’m excited to see who steps up their game and grabs that opportunity with both hands.”
The event features a different format to most Cage Warriors shows, with the event split into three, with a preliminary card, then two main cards packed with Cage Warriors talent looking to make their mark on one of the biggest Cage Warriors shows of the year.
The first main card will be headed by a battle for the Cage Warriors heavyweight title, as heavyweight champ Italian Mauro Cerilli takes on Northern Ireland’s light-heavyweight belt-holder Karl Moore.
If Moore successfully dethrones Cerilli, he’ll become the first man to hold two Cage Warriors world titles since Conor McGregor back in December 2012.
That bout is backed up by a clash for the vacant Cage Warriors flyweight title, as Sam Creasey takes on Nathan Greyson face off for the 125lb belt.
Finishing the night, the second main card will feature a main event clash for the Cage Warriors bantamweight title, as London’s own Nathaniel ‘The Prospect’ Wood takes on 12-1 Italian contender Luca Iovine.
Wood has successfully rendered his longstanding nickname “The Prospect” redundant as he’s ascended to the throne as Cage Warriors’ bantamweight world champion. His most recent outing saw him defeat Welsh contender Josh Reed in a one-round barnburner in one of the most thrilling fights of 2017.

The card in London will also feature a host of familiar faces to regular viewers of Cage Warriors, with rising welterweight contender Craig ‘Thundercat’ White set for action in the co-main event against Alex Montagni, while Welsh super-prospect Jack ‘Tank’ Shore looks to continue his meteoric rise against respected former UFC veteran Vaughan Lee. Cage Warriors veteran Brad ‘The Crazy Kid’ Wheeler and featherweight Dean Trueman are also set for action.
