Cage Titans returns to Plymouth Memorial Hall for its last event of 2017 on Saturday, November 4th. In the Main Event, Cage Titans staple, Johnny ‘Cupcakes’ Campbell battles undefeated New Yorker ‘Ruthless’ Josh Ricci. Campbell steps inside the Cage Titans cage for a record 19th time and will look to cap off the year with a perfect 5 fights and 5 victories. Standing in his way though is arguably one of his toughest test to date in Ricci, who has yet to taste defeat so far in his professional career. This is a tale of two completely different style fighters, Campbell the high-energy, creative striker and Ricci, the hard nosed, grinding-style wrestler, and who comes away victorious will simply come down to who can impose their will on the other and where this fight takes place, either on the ground in favor of Ricci or on the feet in favor of Campbell.

Cage Titans fan-favorite, “Slippery Pete” Peter Barrett returns to action to take on Arkansas’ “Downtown” TJ Brown in the co-main event of the evening. Barrett has gained popularity for his ‘go for broke’ style of fighting, while always hunting for the finish, and it shows in his record with 7 out of his 8 victories coming via finish and 5 of them within the first round. Standing across from Barrett though will be an opponent almost his equal in terms of fighting style, and that is Brown. Brown is the epitome of that ‘kill or be killed’ style and he has only been to a decision twice over the course of his 14 professional bouts, 9 of those being victories and 8 of them coming by finish.

In an other highly anticipate match-up on the Main Card, undefeated Joe Giannetti takes on Connor Barry. This is a fight that has been talked about dating back to when both were amateurs and it was only a matter of time before they got to settle who was the better fighter inside the cage. Since turning pro only a year ago, Giannetti has quickly made a name for himself as a rising star by racking up an unblemished 6-0 record, finishing 5 out of his 6 fights by submission, 4 of which withn the first round. Not to be outdone, the extremely well-rounded Barry is another highly touted prospect, with the ability to finish fights equally either on the ground or the feet, and is looking to continue his climb through the local rankings with an impressive win here.

As always the Undercard will be stacked with a wide variety of hungry, up and coming, amateur fighters just getting their starts in the sport as well as established amateurs looking to position themselves higher in the rankings with hopes of earning an amateur title shot. Two match-ups in particular to keep an eye on will be Trevor Gudde vs Brandon Murphy and Marty Navis vs Alfredo Nunes as both of these fights are taking place in the welterweight division and all 4 of these competitors are hoping with an impressive performance that they will be next in line for a shot at the 170lb title.

On Saturday, August 12th Cage Titans is back at Plymouth Memorial Hall for another action packed fight card. Headlining the event is the #1 ranked bantamweight in New England, undefeated Manny Bermudez (9-0) battling extremely tough veteran Bendy Casimir (20-14-2) out of Las Vegas. Bermudez has quickly become the hottest prospect not yet signed to the UFC and will look to prove once again that it is just a matter of time until he gets there. Standing in his way and looking to derail the hype train though, is arguably his toughest test to date in Bendy Casimir, who is a veteran of almost 40 fights over a 16 year professional career, competing in some of the largest organizations in the world.

In an other highly anticipate match-up on the Main Card, undefeated Joe Giannetti takes on Connor Barry. This is a fight that has been talked about dating back to when both were amateurs and it was only a matter of time before they got to settle who was the better fighter inside the cage. Since turning pro only a year ago, Giannetti has quickly made a name for himself as a rising star by racking up an unblemished 5-0 record, finishing 4 out of his 5 fights within the first round. Not to be outdone, the extremely well-rounded Barry is another highly touted prospect and is looking to continue his climb through the local rankings with an impressive win here.

This card will also see the return of ‘The Unpredictable One’ Sean Lally when he takes on Florida’s Avery McPhatter. Lally is known as being a complete wrecking ball when the cage door closes with all of his wins coming via finish, 5 out of the 6 coming within the first round and his quickest in just 8 seconds. As for McPhatter, he has been competing professionally for over 7 years and over that time has established himself as a pretty complete fighter with his wins coming in all varieties, 2 KO, 5 submissions and 2 decisions.

Rounding out the rest of the 7 fight Main Card, Frank Sforza and Jimmy ‘The Tooth’ Manning look to keep their perfect records intact in separate bouts, two long-time local fight veterans Johnny ‘Cupcakes’ Campbell and Dan Cormier finally meet inside the cage and after a succesful pro debut, Jeff Perez looks to make it two in a row when he takes on Ohio’s Shawn Rall. In addition, kicking things off for the Main Card will be current 170lb Cage Titans Amateur Champion Bobby Gasdia defending his title for the first time against Angelo Richardson.

As always the Undercard will be stacked with a wide variety of hungry, up and coming, amateur fighters just getting their starts in the sport as well as established amateurs looking to position themselves higher in the rankings with hopes of earning an amateur title shot. With that being said, the flyweights will be front and center when Joe Smith takes on William Graustuck and Mitch Raposo battles Nick Amendola with all of the contestants hoping a win puts them next in line to challenge newly crowned champion Jake Kasperwoski. Plus, in a fight that very well could produce a highlight reel Knock-out of the Night, Cage Titans 6 second KO record holder Chris O’Brien takes on the talented and dangerous striker Quentin Harris.

Cage Titans returns to Plymouth Memorial Hall for its highly anticipated summer event on Saturday, June 17th. In the Main Event, Manny Bermudez headlines his second straight Cage Titans’ card when he battles Iowa’s Joe Pearson. Bermudez is widely regarded as one of, if not, the best fighters in New England, where he has amassed a perfect 9-0 record with 7 first round finishes. Overall he has looked near unstoppable with the way he has been running through competition and many feel it is only a matter of time before he is competing on the world’s largest stage in the UFC. As for Pearson, the 70+ fight veteran (45-31) has had a tremendous career himself, competing for over 10 years in some of the top promotions in the country, as well as in Japan, and currently holds the MMA record for most wins via triangle. With that type of experience, as you can imagine, this isn’t the first time he has had to play the role of spoiler and will be looking, once again, to upset the hometown favorite.

Also at the top of the card, local crowd favorite, ‘Slippery Pete’ Peter Barrett puts his undefeated record on the line against Michigan’s Drew ‘All Day’ Morais. The undefeated Barrett, 7 finishes with 6 in the first round, is dead set on making quick work of his opponent and picking up another stoppage victory after going to a decision for the first time in his pro career his last outing. As for Morais, he is really starting to find his groove in the cage, going 3-1 in his last 4, and is coming into this contest riding a two fight win streak with high hopes of handing Barrett his first loss of his career. In addition, another undefeated fighter, Frank Sforza,takes on Wisconsin’s Jay Ellis. After being away from the cage for over two years, Sforza is now making up for lost time and after returning last event to pick up a unanimous decision victory, he is jumping right back in there with hopes of improving upon that performance. Standing in the way of that though is Ellis, a 60 plus fight veteran who has been competing professionally for over 12 years and a man that has no issue coming to hostile territory with plans of handing Sforza his first career loss.

In one of the more highly anticipated showdowns, South Shore Sportfighting’s Joe Giannetti battles Bang Muay Thai product Vince McGuinness. This fight will easily keep the fans engaged from start to finish and could be viewed as the perfect example of a classic Grappler vs Striker match-up. Giannetti has been perfect so far in his career winning all 4 of his professional fights by first round submission but knows he has a tall task ahead of him if he intends on making it 5 when he takes on who he refers to as, “The Baddest Dude Around”. As for McGuiness, he is returning to the Cage Titans’ cage after an amazing three round striking performance in the Main Event at Cage Titans XXXII back in January which gained the Florida native a ton of fans up here in New England. When the door closes on fight night for these two, the gameplan for both will be simple, McGuinness will look to once again show off his crisp technical striking and keep the fight on the feet while Giannetti will ultimately want to get the fight to the ground where he should be most dominant.

As for the rest of the 8 fight Main Card, it will feature the always exciting Johnny ‘Cupcakes’ Campbell taking on striker Timothy Wheeler and Jimmy ‘The Tooth’ Manning in a grudge match versus Montoyia Swilling. Not to be forgotten, kicking off the Main Card will be two Cage Titans Amateur Title Fights in which flyweight champion, Josh Meehan defends his belt against Jake Kasperowski followed by newly crowned lightweight champion Zach DiSabatino putting his title up for grabs against Gerald Meuse.

As for the undercard, in addition to being stacked when many hungry, up and coming, amateur fighters just getting their starts in the sport, it will be highlighted by one match-up in particular that have fans clamoring, Trevor Gudde vs Marty Navis. Gudde has been very impressive in both of his cage appearances so far in his career, earning a second round TKO in his first outing, then following it up with a ‘Fight of the Night’ Award winning decision victory his next time out. As for Navis, he has been dominating in his last two fights as well, finishing both of his opponents by KO/TKO while also picking up ‘Knockout and Fight of the Night’ honors. With each fighter’s attributes and skill levels, expect them to bring that same level of intensity we have seen from them in their past appearances, if not more, because the winner of this match-up will surely be next in line for a Cage Titans title shot.

Headlining the event will be New England’s undefeated finisher Manny Bermudez (8-0) taking on All-American wrestling standout Tony Gravely (8-3) in a bantamweight showdown. Bermudez of South Shore Sportfighting is unbeaten since October of 2012, dating back to his amateur days, and after winning six consecutive amateur fights (all by submission, 4 in the first round) made the move to the professional ranks in June of 2015. Since turning pro he has continued to enjoy that same success and in less than two years time has gone undefeated racking up 8 wins, with 6 first round finishes by submission. As for Gravely, he enters the match-up with a impressive wrestling pedigree as a two time NCAA Division 1 Southern Conference Champion and two time National Qualifier at Appalachian State University.

Competing an amazing 11 times over an 18 month span he has now amassed an 8-3 pro record and established himself as one of the top fighters in his home state of Virginia with plans of coming to Massachusetts to hand Bermudez his first loss.

As for the rest of the all pro, 9 fight Main Card, it will feature the highly anticipated return of Frank Sforza, after a two year lay-off, who is taking on Hawaiian Spencer Higa. Also in action, Cape Cod’s Brendan Battles takes on Maine’s Crowsneck Boutin and the always exciting Johnny ‘Cupcakes’ Campbell battles Ohio’s Raymond Yanez.
