Mehrdad Janzemini vs Stefano Paternò welterweight title bout added to Cage Warriors 95
A welterweight title bout has been added to the upcoming Cage Warriors 95 fight card as Mehrdad Janzemini and Stefano Paternò will battle for the vacant title. Cage Warriors announced the news via a press release. Cage Warriors 95 will be held on Saturday, July 21st, 2018 at the Indigo at the O2, London. Janzemini has won five-straight, finishing all of those bouts inside the distance. He is coming off a first-round TKO win over Brad Wheeler at Cage Warriors 92: Super Saturday. Paternò is undefeated in seven contests, going 6-0-1 in that time. He is coming off a first-round KO win over John Maguire at Italian Fighting Championship 3 for the vacant IFC welterweight title. “I want people to think I come to grapple,” said Janzemini on the mic after the fight. “But I’ve got hands. You just saw that. I want that belt. I look myself in the mirror and I’m missing that belt.” “We’re so excited to have this bout signed and sealed – an England vs Italy title fight between two legitimate number 1 contenders,” says Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan. “When you put two guys together with such a high finish rate like this, there’s no way it doesn’t turn into an absolute war. The fans win here.” This is perhaps the most exciting time for the Cage Warriors welterweight division in the promotion’s history. With top welterweight contenders Craig White and Carlos Pedersoli Jr recently signing with the UFC, and UFC veteran Nicolas Dalby back on the Cage Warriors roster, the promotion have begun to confirm a number of stellar new additions including Adam Proctor and Nathan Jones, who faces the unbeaten Ross Houston in another huge welterweight matchup on July 21st. With this news, Cage Warriors 95 now looks like this: Mehrdad Janzemini vs Stefano Paternó – Welterweight Title Fight Nathan Jones vs. Ross Houston – Welterweight Ed Arthur vs Mike Ekundayo – Bantamweight Paull McBain vs. Steve Aimable – Featherweight Jamie Richardson vs. Phil Wells – Welterweight Scott Malone vs. Darren O’Gorman – Bantamweight Pelu Adetola vs. James Webb – Middleweight
