🥋🥊 London returns to London with Michael ‘Venom’ Page and Giovanni Melillo headlining a stacked Wembley show. Limited tickets are available.
The sixth Bellator European Series event of 2019 features Hackney-born Michael ‘Venom’ Page against 34-year-old Italian Giovanni Melillo in the main event after USA’s Derek Anderson was forced to withdraw through injury.
Page (15 wins v 1 loss) professes to be in the shape of his life and will start as favourite against Melillo who boasts a professional record of 13 wins and four losses
In a middleweight grudge match Fabian ‘The Assasin’ Edwards and Mike ‘Sea Bass’ Shipman finally get to front up to settle their differences. The two highly-rated English middleweights have been rivals ever since they both signed for Bellator and came face-to-face for the first time in a tense stare-off in September where Shipman accussed Edwards of running his mouth. Now the talking is over.
Joining Edwards and Shipman on the main card is a lightweight bout between Terry ‘The Dominator’ Brazier (11-2) and Denmark’s Søren ‘The True Viking’ Bak (13-1), who will be making his Bellator debut.
On the Bellator London preliminary card, London’s Charlie Leary (16-10-1) will face Birmingham’s Tim “The Experiment” Wilde (12-4) in a lightweight match-up. Birmingham’s Aiden Lee (7-4) meets Poland’s Damian Frankiewicz (9-2) in a featherweight bout, while Scotland’s Robert “The Hammer” Whiteford (15-4) will be making his promotional debut for Bellator against Daniel Crawford (10-3).
