Almighty FC 27 is keeping busy between events and working hard to make each card better than the last. In line with that they have put together an exciting amateur bout; set to take place on the 24th of July at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre.
Callum Mather vs Charlie Balmer
Charlie Balmer (3-3-0) has competed across every lower weight class and given a good account of himself doing so. Much of that can be attributed to his own work ethic, and the rest of it to a good team that stands behind him; training with the likes of Kurtis Campbell and Connor Walsh at The MMA Academy. Debuting as a flyweight the fighter found the majority of his success at featherweight, going 2-1 competing in the weight class. His form, however, has continued to be less consistent than the fighter would like, going 2-2 following a nineteen layoff from the sport, losing his two most recent bouts. Eager to get on the winning track Balmer will be breaking ground and competing as a lightweight at Almighty FC 27.
“I’ll be the best you’ve seen of me in that cage, July 24th.”Charlie Balmer speaking to Combat Sports UK ahead of Almighty FC 27.
Across the Octagon, Callum Mather (2-1-0) will be looking to win his third fight in seven months. Having competed solely as a lightweight this weight class is familiar to Mather, who is looking to stay active. Fast Gym’s most recent MMA prospect started out in Ultra MMA, a white-collar charity event. Following a win in his first unofficial bout, he decided to officially debut four months later. Losing in his first bout, although going the distance, he remained active. Mather booked his next two bouts, going to decision twice and winning both in the space of six weeks. Looking to overcome his toughest opponent yet, Mather is hoping to learn as much as he wants to win.
“I anticipate nothing less than a war, he’s got double my experience at amateur. I see him as nothing less than my toughest fight to date, but I feel I’ll be too strong and too powerful in there and get a statement victory.”Callum Mather speaking to Combat Sports UK ahead of Almighty FC 27.
