Regis ‘The First’ Sugden will be looking for a second pro MMA win when he is back in the BAMMA cage on Saturday 21 February.
Originally scheduled to take on Ben Dearden at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton, the Suggy’s Gym fighter will now meet Austrian Manuel ‘Sugar’ Bilic on the BAMMA 18 card. And with both Regis and Manuel scoring victories by TKO in their last fights, fans are being promised fireworks in the Bantamweight match up.
“I’ve trained really hard for this one and am prepared for all eventualities,” said 19 year-old Regis. “It’s going to be a great show and I can’t wait to rip it up in the cage again against an international opponent.”
With a professional record of one win and two losses, 20 year-old Manuel makes his BAMMA debut in Wolverhampton. “I’ve been hearing a lot about Regis and am coming to put him to the test and have the fight of the night,” he said.
Tickets for BAMMA 18 are £35, £50 and £100 cage-side – for details and bookings, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Suggy’s Gym on 01636 605708.
