Scottish amateur fighter David Winiarski will attempt to propel his record to 5-0 at Cage Warriors 142 on August 13th. The event, which will be held at the Ebbw Vale Sports Centre, will feature both a professional and amateur card.
Fighting at CW 142
The event will be televised on UFC Fight Pass, and the Scot is thoroughly excited by the opportunity. He said, “It’s a great card with some amazing matchups.
“I’m honoured I’ve been asked to fight on a show of this magnitude. I feel at home fighting in these types of high-pressure events. I can’t wait to get in there and show this promotion what I’m all about.
“I’ve always thought I should be fighting on these types of shows. I’m the first in the gym and the last to leave, and I really put my heart and soul into this in the hope of making it big, and I can finally see a pathway there. Exciting times ahead.”
Winiarski holds an undefeated amateur record and only made his debut in November of 2021. His most recent victory came at CWAW7 in June. A well-deserved decision victory of Raheem Joseph set up this opportunity on August 13th.
He is set to face fellow undefeated amateur Jay Aspinwall in front of the packed-out Ebbw Vale crowd. Aspinwall is 2-0 as a fighter and also featured on the CWAW 7 card. The Welshman came away with the first-round TKO victory over Jack Beazley.
“Jay seems like a tough lad. Very aggressive. But, I’m excited for this matchup and step up in class. Higher the risk, better the reward.”

“It’s my little fighting family. I train throughout the day and at night in the lead-up to my fights. Training with my own personal trainer, Raymond McAloon, throughout the day. It is his job to make sure I’m feeling fit, strong and ready to rip heads clean off.
“At night, I’m with my head coach Steven Harris, who’s always helping me execute the craft to perfection.”
What Can Fans Expect?
“I think fans should expect to see a fast-paced fight, and I don’t expect this fight to go the distance one bit.”
Looking ahead to the future, the Scotsman has stated his desire to turn professional further down the line.
“My dream is to go pro, get into a big promotion and take it all the way to the big time. That’s what gets me through the tough sessions and long hours in the gym each day. I dream of one day having a world title, and I truly believe that will happen.
“I’m putting it out there for the world to see…”
