June 10th, 2024

No more waiting…Joe “Skeletor” Giannetti vs. “Slippery Pete” Peter Barrett FINALLY takes place at Cage Titans 66 July 20th at Plymouth Memorial Hall

Nearly a decade in the making, it is a matchup that fans have been clamoring for since the initial call out in 2017. Since then, both fighters have tasted the big show, and both have been on runs worthy of another call up, and it can be assured that prospecting eyes will be on this all time legendary title fight. It was not meant to be on their initial routes to the big show, though it seems destiny has manifested as their roads cross on the way back in the form of a Cage Titans Championship fight that fans have been waiting years to see. Good things come to those who wait as both Cage Titans staples have grown and developed even sharper skills, mindsets, and motivations to best the other man, and return where they feel they belong in the big show.

Giannetti (16-5, 8 SUB 6 KO) has been at the top of the division for over two years, going 5-1 in title fights during that span, most recently with a stellar first round Ninja Choke victory over Jacob Bohn in which he recaptured the lightweight crown. A performance that gave a flashback to his earlier career that saw a habitual knack for necks, he has shown ever developing set of striking skills and tenacity to match his submission prowess, and has assured the masses that he has a dedication to match. Staying the king of the lightweight division is the clearest path back to primetime, and this title defense consists of an entrée of skills between both fighters, and is only made sweeter with the dessert of the bad blood that has been boiling since 2017.

Surprisingly in his first Cage Titans title fight is Slippery Pete, and the timing couldn’t be more opportune. On a 5 fight finish streak of his own over the course of the Skeletor reigns, Barrett (16-6, 11 KO 3 SUB) will be delighted to add a pro title to his collection of Cage Titans accomplishments that started at Cage Titans 4, even more so due to the waist he could strip the belt from. With a resume of astonishing finishes, and high octane violent craftsmanship win lose or draw, his case for another ticket to primetime will be stronger with another impressive finish, and a shiny new belt. All limbs are potential kill shots at any moment of any fight, added to a wrestling base with sleeper submission skills, this fight has all the makings of a classic despite the rich history between these already proven local MMA legends.

Appetizing the main event is a bout between budding contenders at bantamweight between Andrew Valdina and Tyler Smythe. With contrasting styles and personas, their identical goals for a contender series shot align them in a matchup that is sure to electrify the crowd before this once in a promotional lifetime main event. Undefeated at 5-0 with all victories by finish, Andrew “The Gladiator” Valdina has hit a stride in the limelight since his return in May, embracing his skills on the mic along with his ever growing highlight real. On the contrast is the silent grinder Tyler “Butterknife” Smythe (5-3, 4 SUB, 1KO) who has been swimming in the deep end of the division since his pro debut, and believes his suffocating style will prove superior in this well earned co-main event slot.

This is the tip of the iceberg to a card full of not only professional contenders, but a stack of amateur title fights that historically never disappoint. All this and more will be live from Plymouth Memorial Hall on July 20th.
