In only a few weeks time BAMMA will be back in Birmingham to host BAMMA 23 Night of Champions, and unfortunately for the promotion the card has received a few last minute changes.
The proposed Heavyweight Title fight between Mark Godbeer and Ruben Wolf has been scratched from the card following the withdrawal from Godbeer. Wolf will instead meet Thomas Denham for the Interim strap.
Godbeer Vs Wolf was a highly anticipated European Heavyweight bout and whilst it is unknown what is next for Godbeer, the facebook statement released by Godbeer confirmed that we won’t have to wait long to find out.
“As people may have seen I have withdrew from the ruban wolf fight on BAMMA 23. There is more news to come regarding this matter. I believe people will be updated tmr and will become clear.”
Team Titan’s CJ Meeks was also due to make his promotional debut on the show against Marcin Prostko, but unfortunately for Meeks he picked up an injury which has forced him to be removed from the show. Whilst the news is devastating for Meeks it has opened up an opportunity for Bill Beaumont who also trains alongside Meeks at Team Titan.
Beaumont will step in and replace Meeks to take on Marcin Prostko. Undefeated Beaumont is coming fresh off of a big win over David Round at Rise of the Champions and will have a golden opportunity to take the bull by the horns and score a win on the big stage.
