  • SNA 12 Poster 212x300 ShockNAwe 12 Preview: Fight card confirmed with Tyrie vs. Ling set to headline on Oct. 13Shock’N'Awe (SNA) have confirmed their fight card and main event for SNA 12 as Stuart Tyrie (6-3) faces Mike Ling (9-4) for the SNA British Middleweight Title. The event is set to take place at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth on Oct. 13.

    Shock’N'Awe officials confirmed the fight card on Tuesday (Oct. 9) via official press release.

    SNA 12 will also feature a co-main event between Jack Mason (21-11) and Alexei Roberts (7-2), who will battle for the SNA British Welterweight Title. The event will also include a bout between Phil Else and Nathan Beer who will fight for the SNA British Featherweight Title.

    Stuart Tyrie last fought at OMMAC 14 in July, where dropped a first round TKO loss to Lee Chadwick. Prior to that he had been on a three-fight winning streak, defeating Gareth Williams, Gary Decorde and Shaun Beer all during 2012. In October 2011 he faced Valentino Petrescu at UWC 17, but lost the fight via decision. Tyrie now has the chance to get back into the win column with a good performance against Ling.

    Mike Ling is currently riding a two-fight losing streak, after dropping a decision loss to Alan Carlos at “CWFC – Fight Night 6″ in May, and a first round KO defeat against Brett Bassett at “CWFC – Fight Night 7″ in September. His most recent victory was against Eric Cebarec at “CWFC – Fight Night 5″ in April, where he scored a second round TKO win. Ling will no doubt look to get back on the winning track with a big victory over Tyrie.
