Martyn Alsop and the Fight Scene team are proud to announce that the main event of Fight Scene 5, which takes pace on December 2nd at the Clapham Grand, will be an mouth watering domestic affair between top UK middleweights, Leeroy Barnes and Dan Edwards.
Coming off a loss to Denniston Sutherland at BAMMA 10, Barnes is eager to get back to winning a ways, and will want to work his way back up the ladder. With a win over a talent like Edwards it would hold him in good stead to make a charge for the big show again. He said;
“I’m looking forward to getting back in the mix and thanks to Fight Scene for the opportunity, I always come to fight so I hope Dan is ready for a straightener”
For those who don’t know, Dan Edwards is no chump though, this is no easy fight for either guy and it makes for a great scrap. Edwards, who has fought the likes of Fraser Opie, will be looking to take a big name scalp in his quest to be a success. After his last fight at Fight Scene 4, he demanded better opposition in the future, and Mr Alsop has granted him his wish.
When asked what he thought of the fight, Martyn Alsop replied “good”, reminiscent of having no energy left and that it has taken so much to get this fight signed and sealed. It must have been stressful, but my god it was worth it, a top domestic match up that EVERYONE will be talking about.
