Cage Warriors Academy Northwest 1: Full fight and video preview for this weekends event in Liverpool

Cage Warriors returns this weekend for its first Academy Northwest showing.

The event will take place at the Liverpool ACC Conference Centre in Liverpool, England on Saturday, 17th June 2017.

The main event was scheduled to feature James Duckett vs. Kes Memba, however, earlier this week, Memba was pulled from the card for medical reasons. Cage Warriors have told MMA Mad that they are still hopeful of finding Duckett an opponent for the show.

Duckett, who has won his last three on the bounce will make his first appearance for Cage Warriors at the show in Liverpool.  A decision win over Danny Nash has been followed up by two TKO wins in a row over Ant Davies and Dan Cassell.

The co-main event features a lightweight clash between Elliot Jenkins and Pedro Perez.

Another three professional bouts complete the main card as Bobby Pallett meets Matt Bonner, Anthony O’Connor battles Craig Bale and Pedro Carvalho faces Craig Edwards.

Prior to the main card, the undercard will feature sixteen amateur fights including two title fights.

In the first title bout, Shinobi FC amateur lightweight champion takes on the former M4TC amateur featherweight champion Scott Pederson.

Gavin won the Shinobi FC lightweight title last time out, earning a first-round TKO over Irishman John Byrne at Shinobi War 10. Pederson won the M4TC featherweight strap, defeating Mitch Dobbins via split decision at M4TC 22, however, would lose the title to Lewis Garside at M4TC 23.

The second title on the line is for the CW amateur flyweight title as the Shinobi and Budo amateur flyweight champion Liam Gittins meets the Akuma Fighting Championship amateur flyweight champion, Ciaran Mulholland.

Gittins is coming off a second-round submission win over Connor Wilson at Cage Warriors 82 while Mulholland won his title last time out against Mike McCoy at Akuma Fighting Championship 10, also via second-round submission.
