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.
