• CWFC Fight Night 9: Magomedov v Mason, Ptasinski v Caers added to lineup

  • A pair of welterweight bouts have been added to the card for CWFC Fight Night 9, which takes place at the King Hussein Boxing Arena in Amman, Jordan, on Friday, 25 October, 2013.

    Ten-fight Cage Warriors veteran Jack Mason will clash with CWFC debutant Abusupiyan Magomedov, while a third Cage Warriors career victory will be the aim for both Piotr Ptasinski and Lee Caers when they lock horns.

    Mason (24-12) will be keen to return to the win column after dropping a narrow decision loss to Ali Arish on his most recent outing at Cage Warriors 57 in Liverpool back in July, a defeat which snapped a four-fight win-streak.

    The 31-year-old Englishman said: “I’m really excited to be fighting in the Middle East again and I’m itching to get back in the cage after my last fight. I’m going to put on a good performance and get another victory against a top European fighter in Abusupiyan Magomedov.

    Magomedov (9-2), a 23-year-old fighter from Dagestan who’s currently based in Germany, has built up a big reputation on the continent since making his professional debut in February 2010, and has already taken two first-round TKO wins in 2013.

    “To fight for an organisation as big as Cage Warriors is a dream come true for me and I hope to make the most of this opportunity,” said Magomedov.

    Meanwhile, Piotr Ptasinski will join Trojan Freefighters team-mate Che Mills on the CWFC Fight Night 9 card for what’s likely to be an exciting tussle with Lee Caers.

    After suffering defeats to CWFC pair Mohsen Bahari and Ashley Beaumont in the second half of last year, Ptasinski (5-3) rebounded with a second-round submission of John Redmond at Cage Warriors 55 in Dublin this past June.

    “I’m really happy to be fighting for Cage Warriors again and as always you can expect me to be involved in an exciting and entertaining fight,” said Polish-born 29-year-old Ptasinski.

    Caers (9-3) returns to action in search of his third consecutive CWFC win, having recently seen off the challenge of Aaron Thomas via first-round submission at Cage Warriors 59 in Cardiff.

    The 29-year-old Englishman, who has tasted defeat just once in his last seven outings, said: “This is a good match-up and it’ll be a test for me, but it’s a test that I’ll pass. Like my nine wins so far, I expect to finish the fight.”
