This Saturday sees Cage Warriors host its biggest card of they year, the now annual, Super Saturday card.
The event sees two main cards, with four champions fighting on the night, with the Bantamweight, Flyweight and Heavyweight titles being defended at the O2 Indigo.
Not only this but since the last Super Saturday, 18 Cage Warriors fighter have made the jump up to fight in the UFC. And with the announcement of UFC Liverpool taking place in May, fighters will be looking to put on the performances of their lives in the hopes of Dana White giving them a call.
The following preview is for the first main card of the night.
Mauro Cerilli will look to defend his Heavyweight title against his toughest opponent yet in Karl Moore who will be looking to become the first Cage Warriors double champion since Conor McGregor. This will be “The Hammer’s” first title defence since winning the vacant Heavyweight title at Cage Warriors 89. With a 11-2 record and four consecutive wins going into this fight, Cerilli has everything to lose.
Meanwhile, Moore is the Light Heavyweight champion, carrying a 8-1 record and three fight win streak into the cage with him. This fight has already been cancelled once so both men will be eager to get their hands on each other within the cage. Neither man is an outright favourite and the fact that this fight will contested over five rounds means we could see a slower and more technical fight.
Sam “Urai” Creasey and Nathan Greyson will take each other on in a fight to crown a new Cage Warriors Flyweight champion.
Creasey comes in to the fight with a 9-1 record and two consecutive wins via first round stoppage, whilst Greyson also comes in with two consecutive wins, he is less experienced, with a 5-2 record. I can’t pick a winner here but the Cage Warriors Flyweight division always puts on great fights and this contest will be no different.
Jamie Richardson and Sam Boult will be facing off on the night in the hopes of getting into the welterweight title picture. Richardson is 6-3 in his pro career, and “The Young Gun” will be aiming at increasing his wining streak to five fights.
His opponent, Boult, meanwhile, will be making the trip down from Sheffield to London with every intention of going 10-2 and going two fights unbeaten. Both men go into the bout with the ability to finish fights and those in attendance are sure to see one hell of a fight.
Kicking off the event is a welterweight clash between Mehrdad Janzemini and Brad Wheeler.
Janzemini will be looking to extend his winning streak to five fights, whilst Wheeler will be looking to improve his 16-11 record and put a loss in his last fight behind him. Janzemini will be the overwhelming favourite going into this fight, with his last four wins all coming within the distance, showing that he has both dangerous submission skills and the ability to finish opponents with strikes.
