A catchweight bout between CJ Meeks and Marcin Prostko has been added to the BAMMA 23 card.
BAMMA 23 : Night of Champions will be held on 14 November 2015, at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham. The event will host four BAMMA world title fights. The main event features a BAMMA World Heavyweight title fight between champion Mark Godbeer and Ruben Wolf.
C.J. Meeks (4-1) makes his BAMMA debut at the Night of Champions against the currently undefeated Prostko. The Double K and Team Titan fighter took up boxing from a very young age and progressed into Thai Boxing and BJJ from there. Part of the new generation of well rounded MMA fighters, Meeks from Bexleyheath in Kent wants to make a big impact on his upcoming debut:
“Absolutely over the moon to have signed with BAMMA, truly believe it’s the premier organisation in Europe, and I’m looking forward to putting on a show on such an established stage. I’m here to make a name for myself. Thanks to everyone involved in my career from my coaches, team mates, my manager, my family and of course thanks to Jude Samuel and BAMMA for the opportunity.” CJ Meeks
The Polish born freestyle fighter out of Wakefield, Marcin ‘Mad Boy’ Prostko is only 4-0 in his pro career, but already holds a regional Middleweight title. Training out of ASW Manchester alongside the likes of Lonsdale Lightweight Champion Marc Diakiese and former BAMMA Middleweight Champion Scott Askham, the 28 year old is coming to put BAMMA fighters on notice that there is a new contender in town.
With this addition, BAMMA 23 now looks like this.
