Cage Warriors 92 ‘Super Saturday’ Preview (Part Two)



Having previewed the first main card of Cage Warriors’ Super Saturday event this weekend in London, I will now take a look at the events second main card.

London-born fighter Nathaniel “The Prospect” Wood (pictured) will headline Saturday’s event, putting his Bantamweight title on the line against Italian fighter Luca Iovine. Iovine will be Wood’s toughest test to date, sporting an impressive 12-1 record with a run of eight consecutive wins, five coming via stoppage.

Wood, on the other hand, is 12-3, has a tough chin (if you want an example of this just go on YouTube and watch his fight against Josh Reed) and is unbeaten in his last four fights. Wood is also trained by UFC veteran Brad “One Punch” Pickett as well and it is clear that Wood is reaping the benefit of having such an experienced mentor and coach. This is going to be a close but exciting fight in classic Cage Warriors Bantamweight division fashion.

Craig White takes on Alex Montagnani in the third Welterweight clash of the event. White comes in to the contest with a record of 13-7, and is on a three fight win streak, finishing all three of these victories within the distance.

His opponent, Montagnani, is also on a three fight win streak, and has a very good record that currently stands at  10-2-1. Both fighters have demonstrated the ability to finish fights and this is another fight where fans will struggle to predict the result.

Jack Shore takes on Vaughan Lee in a Bantamweight clash, where both men will be looking to get into title contention. Shore comes in to Super Saturday with a perfect record of 7-0 and has finished all seven of his victories, either by KO/TKO or submission, proving he is a force to be reckoned with. However, the Welshman will be facing off against a UFC veteran in Lee, who is far more experienced.

Lee is still the underdog though going into this fight, with a 14-13 record, and a four fight loss streak he will be keen to prove he isn’t just a journeyman for the new upcoming talent.

Personally, I think Shore is the man going home with the victory in this fight, he has finishing ability and is up against an opponent who hasn’t fought in just under a year, and his last fight saw him get knocked out by current Bantamweight champion, Nathaniel Wood.

Corrin Eaton and Dean Trueman kick off the second card of Super Saturday as the go head to head in a featherweight contest. Eaton (9-2, 1 NC) will be looking to make an immediate impact as he makes his Cage Warriors debut against Trueman (7-4) at the promotions biggest event of the year.

Eaton has won three of his last four fights within the distance, the fourth being the only no contest on his record. Trueman will be the underdog going into the fight, losing his last fight and he hasn’t fought in almost a year.

This is a fight where I can see the favourite winning but I wouldn’t be too shocked if an underdog was to win the fight.
