BAMMA today announced three further bouts for the BAMMA 29 preliminary card
Ronnie Mann vs. Daniel Crawford, Rick Selvarajah vs. Jai Herbert & BAMMA’s latest signing Josh Plant vs Daniel Cassel all face off against each other on May 12th at the Getting Arena, Birmingham.
Ronnie ‘Iron’ Mann is set for an immediate comeback after coming up short against Damien ‘Frankenstein’ Lapilus in his title bout at BAMMA 28. Standing across from him will be the exceptionally highly regarded Daniel Crawford, in what is set to be a spectacular Featherweight bout. Crawford knows that Ronnie Mann would be the biggest scalp of his career so far, whilst a win for Mann puts him right back on track towards another potential title shot.
It’s a battle of the former Lonsdale challengers as lightweights Rick Selvarajah & Jai Herbert collide in a bout that is sure to be nothing short of total excitement. Selvarajah has recently put pen to paper on a contract extension with the promotion as a marker of his intentions to head to the top of the lightweight division. However, Herbert will provide a serious threat to those hopes with his no nonsense striking style backing up his own ambitions.
“BAMMA is putting on another huge card in the Midlands, so I will be looking to make a huge statement in front of my home crowd. Coming off a disappointing loss and a few setbacks, I’m looking to remind everyone that one bad night doesn’t mean I’m not the best fighter in the division and May 12th I’ll make sure I earn my shot at the title… Lonsdale or World.” – Jai Herbert”I am excited to be working with BAMMA once again – the biggest stage in European MMA. I have been training and working on my skills
“I am excited to be working with BAMMA once again – the biggest stage in European MMA. I have been training and working on my skills non-stop and can’t wait to put on a show at BAMMA 29. For anyone that may have forgotten, May 12th will be a reminder.” – Rick Selvarajah
Additionally, two of the UK’s top up and coming welterweight prospects will clash on May 12th. Having recently signed a multi-fight deal with BAMMA, the highly touted Welterweight Josh ‘Power’ Plant will take on Dan ‘Porkchop’ Cassell as both fighters look to put themselves on the ladder towards the top of the division and eventual title glory.
“I’m still buzzing about signing a multi-fight deal with BAMMA, who are the top promotion in Europe. Dan Cassell is a great first opponent for me. He’s skilled and always game for a fight, but I’m always confident in my abilities. This is my chance to show everyone why I’m the one to watch in the welterweight division. Make sure to buy your ticket for May 12th. I’ll be putting on a show for you all.” – Josh ‘Power’ Plant
“I am delighted to be welcomed back to BAMMA this time as a professional. I will be looking to put on a solid performance and disposing of my opponent in fashion with the ambition of signing a permanent deal with the promotion and climbing up the welterweight ladder!” – Daniel ‘Porkchop’ Cassell
