Two high quality local match-ups have been recently added to the BAMMA 26 card set to take place in Dublin on June 4th.
A BAMMA press release announced the following fights:
‘Magic’ Myles Price vs Declan 'The Bandit'Larkin
The ‘Magic' one returns at BAMMA 26 after signing on the line with a multi-fight deal with the promotion. ‘Magic’ Myles Price (9-6) got back in the win column at BAMMA 24 after defeating the outspoken Mario ‘Rudeboy’ Saeed in just 1:04 of the 2nd round. The always smiling Team Ryano standout is looking to go on a run of victories after signing his contract with BAMMA, and plans on making it two in a row at BAMMA 26 against Declan Larkin. Constantly improving and honing his BJJ skills, his last victory shows that Price is not just dangerous when the fight goes to the floor, but he has power in his fists too. Price will be expecting to make it a very long night for Larkin come June 4th.
BAMMA newcomer Declan 'The Bandit' Larkin (7-10) fights out of the Next Gen N.I. Gym and will be joining his team mates Andy ‘Taz’ Young, Alan ‘The Apprentice’ Philpott & Mark Andrew on the BAMMA 26 fight card. Working under Rodney Moore, Larkin will be looking to get into the win column and put on a performance in his BAMMA debut against Price.
Patrick Wixted Vs James McErlean
Team Ryano fighter Patrick Wixted (1-2) returns to BAMMA after injury prevented him competing at BAMMA 24. Looking to capitalise on his win over Connor Dillon at BAMMA 22, the BJJ Brown belt will be looking to put on a show in front of his home crowd in Dublin at the 3Arena on June 4th, and he feels that the bout with McErlean is just the fight to do that.
Another BAMMA newcomer James McErlean (4-3) fights out of the Young Spartans Fight Club in Derry, Northern Ireland. Having scored a decision victory in February of this year over Niall Smyth, he now moves on to face the upcoming talent of Wixted at BAMMA 26. McErlean has previously faced BAMMA fighters Sean Tobin, Alan Philpott & Andy Young, and is confident that his experience will count come BAMMA 26.
