BAMMA 25 Could Be Historical In Europe


The BAMMA 25 card has been dubbed “Champion vs. Champion,” and officials are living up to that.

Announced recently as the main event for the May 14 card will be bantamweight champion Shay Walsh vs. featherweight titleholder Tom Duquesnoy.

Previously announced fights include lightweight champion Martin Stapleton defending his title against Damien Lapilus, heavyweight champion Mark Godbeer putting his belt on the line vs. Lonsdale champion Stuart Austin and Colin Fletcher vs. Walter Gahadza.

Walsh (14-3) bested Ed Arthur in the BAMMA “Fight of the Year” last year to win the title. He is unbeaten inside the BAMMA cage.

“Big fight for BAMMA and for me,” Walsh said. “I will be ready to defend my crown. I’m not going to let anyone take this away from me on the biggest and best MMA show in Europe.”

DuQuesnoy (12-1-1) defeated Damien Rooney in his debut at bantamweight recently, pushing his unbeaten run to three years.

“I am pleased to see that work pays,” he said. “My aim is to be the best in the categories in which I fight and win the belts. I have been with BAMMA for over two years now and I am pleased of our collaboration, we have evolved in the same direction and are still growing.

“I’m sure BAMMA 25 is going to be one of the best of the year.”
