BAMMA 25: Champion vs. Champion is set to take place on 14 May, 2016 at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England. The main event features a BAMMA bantamweight title fight between current champion Shay Walsh and current featherweight champion Tom DuQuesnoy.
Walsh (14-3 MMA) has looked untouchable since entering the BAMMA cage for the first time in 2014. Unanimous decision wins over James Saville and Paul Reed was followed up with a third round TKO over Gaz Pilot at BAMMA 21 earning Walsh a title shot against champion Ed Arthur at BAMMA 23. Walsh would go onto dominate Arthur, earning the 135lb crown via unanimous decision at BAMMA 23 in Birmingham.
Duquesnoy (12-1 MMA) the current featherweight champion for BAMMA, recently dropped down to bantamweight in his most recent bout against Damien Rooney at BAMMA 24 in Dublin, Ireland. The ‘Firekid’ looked incredible at his new weight-class, finishing Rooney with a vicious one punch KO to earn a title shot at Walsh at BAMMA 25.
The BAMMA heavyweight title fight is also on the line at BAMMA 25 as current champion Mark Godbeer (10-2 MMA) returns from a short retirement to face BAMMA Lonsdale Heavyweight champion Stuart Austin (10-2 MMA). The other world title fight on the line in Birmingham is the BAMMA lightweight title as Martin Stapleton looks to defend his 155lb strap against Frenchman Damien Lapilus.
Marc Diakiese will also look to try and defend his BAMMA lonsdale lightweight title against Kane Mousah.
