Alex Enlund moved to World Title Shot on CWFC 73

The vacant CWFC featherweight world title will be on the line when Alex Enlund and Nad Narimani clash at CWFC 73 at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Saturday, November 1, which has now also been set as a double main-card event. 

Cage Warriors Fighting Championship will crown a new CWFC featherweight world champion at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England, on Saturday, November 1.

The vacant belt will be on the line when Alex Enlund and Nad Narimani clash at Cage Warriors 73, which has now has also been set as a double main-card event.

The clash of Enlund and Narimani will headline part one of the CWFC 73 bill, with champion Stevie Ray and challenger Curt Warburton bringing the curtain down on part two with their CWFC lightweight world title bout.

The first of Cage Warriors 73‘s televised main cards will begin at 6pm local time on Saturday, November 1, before the second kicks off at 9pm. Further details will be announced shortly.

Enlund (10-2-0-1nc), who’ll have the benefit of vocal home support as a native of the north-east of England, has accumulated a 4-1 record since joining CWFC.

After a move to bantamweight in March 2013 was aborted following a difficult weight-cut and subsequent loss to Martin McDonough, Enlund has looked extremely impressive, embarking on a three-fight win-streak.

The 27-year-old jiu-jitsu specialist rebounded with wins over Sebastian Romanowski and Danny Lawson, before disposing of Artem Lobov at CWFC 65 in Dublin earlier this year.

Nine of his ten wins have come by way of submission, and Enlund has been taken out of the first round just once in his professional career.

“Fighting for the CWFC world title is an absolutely massive opportunity for me,”Enlund said. “Winning this belt, especially in front of a home crowd at the Metro Radio Arena, would be a huge achievement.

“Nad Narimani is a good opponent and someone I’ve seen a lot of, so I’m looking forward to testing my skills against a well-rounded competitor and bringing the belt home.”

Narimani (7-1) has risen rapidly through the rankings having made his professional debut just over three years ago, starting with a 5-0 run that included notable victories against Marcin Wrzosek and Karsten Lenjoint.

The 27-year-old Englishman then kicked off his CWFC career against future title challenger Graham Turner in July 2013, but was edged out via split decision, tasting defeat for the only time in his career so far.

But Narimani, who has taken five of his seven wins by stoppage, returned to winning ways courtesy of first-round submissions of previously-undefeated pair Theo Michailidis and Benjamin Brander.

Narimani, who hails from Bristol, said: “This is a huge event and opportunity for me, and I’m proud to be getting this chance to show what I can really do against a very highly-ranked opponent.

“I’ve been working extremely hard so you can expect me to showcase some new skills and come away with another big win in Newcastle on November 1.”

Enlund and Narimani will be vying for a title that was most recently held by Jim Alers, who vacated the belt earlier this year after two successful defences prior to his move to the UFC.
