(PRESS RELEASE) -- CAGE Warriors Fighting Championship has today made one of its most significant acquisitions to date by securing the signature of unbeaten English welterweight Tom Breese.
One of the UK’s top prospects having finished all six of his opponents since making his professional debut in September 2010, Breese (6-0) has inked a five-fight deal that will see him compete exclusively for Cage Warriors.
The Birmingham native, who was British Junior Wrestling Champion in 2011, picked up the biggest win of his young career back in December when he submitted Warren Kee to win the BAMMA British welterweight title.
“I’m very pleased and excited to be joining Cage Warriors and making my stamp on their welterweight division,” said Breese, who turns 22 in September.
“I look forward to fighting internationally too against world-class opponents. The past and present fighters and belt holders passing through Cage Warriors speaks for itself. Make no mistake: I’m here for gold and gold is what I’ll get.”
Following his most recent outing in December, Breese spent time at Tristar Gym in Montreal after being asked to come in as a sparring partner for UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre ahead of his recent successful title defence against Nick Diaz.
“Tom Breese is one of the most exciting young fighters this sport has to offer right now and I’m absolutely delighted that he has decided to take the next step in his career by signing with us” said Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan.
“A fighter of his enormous ability needs to be fighting regularly and not lying idle. We’ll give him the kind of big fights that he deserves here at Cage Warriors. This kid is going right to the top and Cage Warriors will help him to get there.”
