Cage Warriors Academy NW 3: Full fight card for Liverpool event

Cage Warriors Academy North West returns for their third event this week from The Auditorium at the Echo Arena on June 2, 2018.

The event features three professional MMA bouts, five amateur title bouts, a title eliminator bout and a junior title bout along with a whole host of amateur MMA on the undercard.

The main event features a lightweight bout between Adam Ventre and Ben Rees.

Following a couple of losses and a no-contest, Ventre rebounded with a much-needed win in his last bout, earning a first-round submission win over Mathieu Morciano at Shinobi War 9. After losing three in a row, Rees also earned a much-needed win last time out, also a first-round submission win, this time over Rory Evans at Adrenalin Fight Night: Uprising.

The co-main event features a flyweight bout between former top-ranked amateurs Liam Gittins and Leigh Mitchell.

After going 11-2 as an amateur, earning multiple promotional titles in the process, Gittins recently made a successful professional debut, earning a first-round TKO win over Iain Postlethwaite at Almighty Fighting Championship 8. Mitchel will be making his professional debut at this event after going 8-2 as an amateur. He was the Cage Warriors Academy South East flyweight champion before turning professional.

The final professional bout on the card is a bantamweight bout between Paul Evans and Ian Cleary.

Evans will be making his professional debut at the event while Cleary is currently 1-0 as a pro, earning a unanimous decision win over Andrew Lofthouse in his debut at BAMMA 27.

There will also be five amateur titles on the line as Mark Gallivan looks to defend his welterweight title against Ben Crawley, Kieran Conner will look to hold on to his gold belt as he meets Kostea Kostea at lightweight while Nathan Fletcher will take on Richard Kallos to remain the bantamweight champion.

Vacant titles are also on the line as Jabeed Rahman and Mitchell Dobbins battle for the featherweight title while Jordan Baxter takes on Ciaran Mulholland for the vacant flyweight title.
