¬†On Saturday, April 14th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, Cage Titans is looking to follow up on what has been an amazing start to 2018, a sold out event in January and two fighters making it to the UFC, with another stacked fight card. Headlining this epic night of fights, the Cage Titans’ Lightweight Title is on the line when Dan Dubuque takes on Jimmy ‘The Tooth’ Manning. Dubuque is one of the toughest fighters in New England and loves to take his opponents into deep waters where he tests their cardio, heart and will to win. As for Manning, he lives by the motto, “get in and get out” and has shown that so far in his professional career with all but one of his victories coming via first round stoppage. With two very contrasting approaches, something is going to have to give when these two meet and only time will tell who’s gameplan will prevail and who will be leaving with the belt around their waist.

In addition to the Main Event, three amateur title fights really take the spotlight on this Main Card. First up, John Lessard and Mitch Raposo face-off for the vacant Flyweight Title. Lessard was in a bit of a waiting game, with teammate Jake Kasperowski holding the belt, but that all changed when Kasperowski decided to vacate in order to give him his time to shine. As for Raposo, he burst onto the scene last year, rattling off 3 victories in 3 tries, and didn’t care who stood in the way between him and the 125lb title. Since this fight was made, these two have been going at it, first inside the cage following Raposo’s latest victory and call out for a shot at the belt as well as all over social media…The disdain is real between these two and what better way to settle than over the course of 5 rounds!

Next up, the Banatamweight Championship is on the line when the aforementioned Jake Kasperowski battles William Smith. Kasperowski has set high goals for himself and looks to capture his second belt, in hopes of positioning himself as one of Cage Titans’ most decorated amateurs being a multi-division champion. As for Smith, a champion in an other promotion, this is his second chance at a Cage Titans title and his sites are set on capturing the belt that alluded him almost 3 years ago in his first opportunity.

And finally, Marty Navis and Trevor Gudde throw down once again but this time with the Welterweight Title as the prize. These two faced off in a memorable back and forth battle back in June of 2017, with Gudde pulling out the close decision, and with champion Bobby Gasdia on the sidelines, this was the bout to make in order for someone new to stake the claim as the best in New England. If you were witness to their first fight, you can only imagine the excitement we have in anticipation of seeing these two go at it again, but this time for 5 rounds. Multiple Fight Night awards between the two of them, two of the best at their weight class and a new belt up for grabs…What more could you ask for!

The rest of the Main Card features 8 other professional match-ups with many of the faces you have come to expect and love from Cage Titans, as well as an exciting new one, Kin Moy, who is eager to put on a show for the fans at Plymouth Memorial Hall. As for the Undercard, like always, it will be stacked with a wide variety of hungry, up and coming, amateur fighters just getting their starts in the sport as well as some other established amateurs looking to position themselves higher in the rankings with hopes of earning an amateur title shot.
