THE bill for Cage Warriors 58 has today been boosted by four additional bouts, including the first CWFC heavyweight fight of 2013.
Cage Warriors 58, which is set for Saturday, August 24, will take place at the Olympisk Arena in Grozny, Chechnya.
A meeting of two exciting heavyweight prospects will feature, with Ion Cutelaba (pictured) and Michal Andryszak set to clash.
Following their recent meeting at Cage Warriors 57 in Liverpool, both Matt Inman and Mohsen Bahari will make swift returns to action, while the card will also include the featherweight comeback of Alex Enlund.
Cutelaba (4-1) has attracted much attention in Europe since making his professional debut last year at the age of 18.
With a background in judo and combat sambo, the Moldovan youngster has taken three of his four wins in less than a minute, while his only loss came via a controversial TKO stoppage.
“I’m really happy to be competing for such a prestigious organisation as Cage Warriors,” said Cutelaba. “This will be the biggest test of my career but I will look to put on a big performance.”
Andryszak (9-3-0-1), a 21-year-old Pole, comes with a similarly impressive reputation having taken all nine of his wins by stoppage, eight of which came inside the first round.
He said: “This is between two young guns and I think we’ll put on an entertaining fight because my opponent is a tough fighter, like me. Fighting on Cage Warriors is a big opportunity for me and a great honour. I really want to take this chance.”
Elsewhere, having submitted Mohsen Bahari via heel-hook after just 44 seconds of their CWFC 57 meeting, Matt Inman (11-5) will aim for his third consecutive Cage Warriors win when he takes on Russian 22-year-old Eldar Eldarov (4-1), whose only loss to date came at the hands of unbeaten UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Bahari (5-1), who saw his undefeated streak ended by Inman, will be keen to returning to winning ways against Alexander Voitenko (9-3), a 26-year-old welterweight from Ukraine who disposed of Dan Hope by third-round TKO at Cage Warriors 46.
Meanwhile, following a bantamweight defeat to CWFC title challenger Martin McDonough at Cage Warriors 52, Alex Enlund (7-2-0-1) returns to the 145lbs division for a meeting with 23-year-old Polish prospect Sebastian Romanowski (7-1).
More fights are still to be announced for CWFC 58. Keep track of Cage Warriors on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news and updates.
