Liverpool MMA fighter Paddy Pimblett is set to feature on Cage Warriors 133 on March 20th next year.
The promotion put out a press release earlier today detailing information about the upcoming card, as well as naming the 13 competing fighters so far.
Pimblett’s opponent is still unknown, but there are many names it could be in the lightweight division.
A likely suggestion would be Belgian Donovan Desmae who he has been scheduled to fight two times prior.
Another fight the fans want to see is the one with Joe Giannetti.
The Next Generation MMA fighter was supposed to fight the American earlier this month at CW111, but the fight was cancelled on weigh-in day with Giannetti missing weight by over seven pounds.
A lot of talk on social media back-and-forth between the pair followed the cancelled fight, leaving fans intrigued at the possible fight in the future.
Giannetti told MerseySportLive however that the fight is very unlikely to happen with Cage Warriors owner Graham Boylan making it very clear he isn’t welcome back.
He did say: “wherever and whenever the fight does happen then I’ll be ready. All I learned from that experience is just to walk around close to fight weight.”
Maybe the fight is a possibility for the future, but is looks unlikely for March in Cage Warriors.
The fight in London however presents Paddy Pimblett with the chance to quickly put this year behind him and start 2020 fresh on his charge to winning his second world title with the promotion.
The former CW featherweight champion is undefeated in the capital, with notables wins coming over UFC veteran Julian Erosa and Frenchman Teddy Violet in previous years.
The scheduled event is perfect for fight fans, with it correlating with the UFC event a night later on March 21st in the same venue.
Similarly, the announcement comes on the same day as Molly McCann’s announced fight at UFC London so both fighters from Next Generation MMA are set to compete in March.
Other fighters announced for CW113 include flyweight champion Samir Faiddine, Mason Jones, Ian Garry, Cory McKenna and more.
