Tanko Fighting Championships 4: Updated fight card for Friday’s event in Manchester

Tanko Fighting Championships returns this weekend for Tanko Fighting Championships 4 from the Victoria Warehouse on Friday, 12th May 2017.

In the main event, undefeated Lawrence Fitzpatrick meets Frenchman Anthony Dizy.

Fitzpatrick is coming off an impressive first-round submission win over Charles Bennett at Tankō Fighting Championships 3 whilst Dizy is also coming off a great win over Martin Stapleton at Cage Warriors 80 via unanimous decision.

The co-main event features the return of Regis Sugden as he takes on Arturo Chavez.

Following three straight wins to kick off his career under the BAMMA banner, Sugden lost a split decision to Alan Philpott at
BAMMA 22: Duquesnoy Vs. Loughnane for the vacant Lonsdale bantamweight title. Injuries have kept Sugden out of action since the bout which took place in September 2015. Chavez is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Shamil Shakhbulatov at Absolute Championship Berkut 47: Braveheart in Glasgow.

There are eleven professional bouts on the fight card with eight amateur bouts prior.

Headlining the amateur bouts is an amateur flyweight title bout between current champion Muhammad Mokaev as he takes on Warren Mason.
