3 household names with MTGP represent the UK against 3 of Italy’s finest stars which includes a main event showdown for the inaugural MTGP World Title Super-Lightweight Title.
Carlton Lieu (2-0 at MTGP) defeated Asa Ten Pow in his last bout at MTGP6 and has the chance to reach the top of the pile in his division. Lieu wishes to make it 3 out of 3 at the MTGP against the dangerous Giorgio Leonardi who stands in his way for the 63.5KG super-lightweight title.
After a great year for Charlie Peters (4-0 at MTGP) winning 7 of his 9 bouts, Charlie would love to continue in the same vein in year 2017 ahead of his anticipated summer bout with UK no.1 Liam Harrison. It’s Peters against the dynamic Alessio D’Angelo in a non title 66.6KG bout.
Rory Crawford (3-1 at MTGP) has been on fire from his last 3 bouts against tough opposition and one of Kent’s favourites finds himself a tough test pitted against Steffano Simeoni. The first KGP high profile bout (at 65KG) announced for 2017.
3 of the south east’s leading gyms Team Tieu and Double K combine for the first of our international team series. UK v Italy!
