Shay Walsh, Alan Philpott to Collide for Vacant Bantamweight Title at BAMMA 30
By: Mike Sloan May 17, 2017
Duquesnoy vacated his BAMMA bantamweight title earlier this
year, it was a mystery as to when it would find a new home and,
more importantly, who would claim it. On July 7 at BAMMA 30, the
championship belt will be vacant no more.
Walsh and Alan
Philpott, both Duquesnoy victims, were the two logical choices
for the U.K.-based promotion and they will lock horns for the right
to hoist the 135-pound crown. The action will reportedly headline
BAMMA 30, which goes down inside 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
“Regaining my BAMMA world title is my number one goal, none of
these bantamweights can stop me achieving that,” former champ Walsh
Philpott is standing in my way and he will be dealt with. My
momentum and confidence are sky high at the minute, this is the
perfect time to remind everyone of the level I'm operating at and
be reunited with my belt!”
Philpott has a different view.
“He’s had his time, he's slowing down, and I'm only getting
started,” he said. “I'm too fast on a bad day, on a good day he
doesn't stand a chance. No one in the division is ready for what's
coming. A new king is rising.”
