Casey Kenney Looks to Become Two-Division Interim Champion in New LFA 62 Main Event
By: Tristen Critchfield Mar 13, 2019
Kenney will get a chance to become a two-division champion of
the interim variety when he faces Vince
Cachero in the new Legacy Fighting Alliance 62 headliner.
Cachero was supposed to face reigning LFA bantamweight king
Johns in the original LFA 62 main event, but Johns withdrew
from the event due to a hand injury. As a result, Kenney, will face
Cachero for the interim 135-pound belt. Kenney is already the
promotion’s interim flyweight titlist.
LFA 22 takes place on March 22 at the Bomb Factory in Dallas and
airs on AXS-TV at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. In the co-main event,
Mowles will face Ahmet Kayretlie at 135 pounds.
Kenney claimed the interim flyweight strap with a five-round
verdict over Brandon
Royval at LFA 53 this past November. A two-time competitor on
Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, Kenney enters the
matchup with Cachero on a three-fight winning streak under the LFA
Cachero is unbeaten in six professional outings. Most recently,
“The Anomaly” outpointed Joe Murphy at
LFA 54. Four of Cachero’s victories have come in LFA.
