Middleweight contender Lee ‘The Butcher’ Chadwick (22-13-1) will return to action on the card when he takes on Andy Manzolo (15-5). ‘The Butcher’ makes a welcome return to the cage after his recent match up with Bola Omoyele was scrapped from the last London card due to health reasons. The Cage Warriors 85 in Bournemouth is starting to take shape with the addition of three more pro bouts to the growing fight card for June 24.
The show, which takes place on National Armed Forces Day here in the UK, will be brought in conjunction with REORG Jiu Jitsu Foundation, a charity established by the Royal Marines to provide a platform for serving personnel and veterans to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as part of their recovery and to combat the challenge of mental health and physical disabilities.
“REORG Jiu Jitsu Foundation is very proud to be the chosen Charity for Cage Warriors 85,” said REORG’s founder, Colour Sergeant Sam Sheriff.
“With the event having Royal Marines fighting at the event this makes it even more memorable. We hope this will only help raise awareness of REORG and in turn help more Serving wounded and Veterans by being introduced to Jiu Jitsu.”
Tickets for Cage Warriors 85 are available via cagewarriors.com.
