Jack Cartwright to Clash With Gerardo Fanny in Bantamweight Title Affair at CW 115

By Tudor Leonte Aug 28, 2020

A whopping five belts will be on the line across “The Trilogy” of three Cage Warriors Fighting Championship events in September.

A new title clash has been added to the upcoming CW 115 event, per the promotion on Friday. Manchester’s own Jack Cartwright will attempt his second title defense on Sept. 25 against Gerardo Fanny. This championship bout joins another already scheduled on the card at middleweight. CW 115 is the second of three consecutive events across the last week in September.

Cartwright (8-0) won the belt by smashing both Scott Malone and Marko Kovacevic in the first round of the one-night bantamweight tournament of Unplugged 2 in 2019. He then defended his title against Manuel Bilic at CW 112, where he displayed a surgical striking throughout the fight. For the first time in his professional career, Cartwright won via decision, as each of his seven previous victories came by first-round stoppage.

The challenger and promotional newcomer Fanny (9-1) is coming off a second-round TKO victory over Luiz Filho in his latest cage appearance. The win over Filho put him back in the win column, rebounding from his first career defeat when Daan Duijs tapped him out in 2019. That loss snapped an eight-bout winning streak. Like his opponent, the Dutchman prefers the finish, with seven of nine victories coming inside the distance.

CW 115 will take place behind closed doors at the BEC Arena in Manchester, England, on Sept. 25. The card will also feature a middleweight championship tilt between Nathias Frederick and Jamie Richardson. Additionally, Ultimate Fighting Championship vet Craig White is taking on James Webb in a middleweight affair, while up-and-coming Ben Ellis collides with Kingsley Crawford at 145 pounds.
