Bamma will return to The SSE Arena, Wembley for BAMMA 31 on September 15, it was announced today.
The last time the organization held an event at The SSE Arena was back in September 2015 for BAMMA 10: Sinclair vs. Winner. This time around they bring an event featuring a BAMMA world welterweight title fight between Nathan Jones and Alex Lohore, as well as a BAMMA world featherweight title fight between Damien ‘Frankenstein’ Lapilus and Daniel Crawford.
Jones, 11-5, and Lohore, 12-1, have been on a collision course for some time now, ever since Lohore felt disrespected by Jones in a post-fight victory speech. Now they get the chance to settle their differences in front of a raucous London crowd.
Lapilus versus Crawford, meanwhile, is another meeting of a Frenchman and Englishman. Lapilus, 15-7-1, defeated Ronnie Mann via decision last time out in February, and Crawford, 9-1, did the same, only he managed to stop Mann inside the very first round. It marked the second time Mann had been TKO’d in his 14-year pro career.
Tickets for BAMMA 31 go on pre sale Wednesday, June 21 and general sale on Friday, June 23 from http://www.ssearena.co.uk/events.
