Tom Mullen returns to action at Almighty Fighting Championship 24, hoping to rebound from his first loss. In his attempt, he takes on Peruvian Aron “NINJA” Bowe, who fights out of Luxembourg. He comes into the fight following a unanimous decision win over Mohammed Rouziq at the RLFC 2 event.
The Almighty FC 24 event will occur at The Olympia in Liverpool on the 2nd of April. It hosts two pro title bouts, plus many of the city’s finest young prospects taking on fighters from all over Europe.
Tom Mullen vs Aron Bowe : FOTN?
Tom Mullen, who boasts a perfect 8-0 amateur record lost his second professional fight by knockout to Mark Ewen at Almighty FC 20. It was a firefight that looked close in the first round, with both the striking and grappling exchanges being back and forth.
As the second round began, more of the same ensued. The fight’s frantic pace stayed throughout most of the round, in what was a great effort by both Mullen and Scotland’s Mark Ewen.
As the second came to a close Mullen looked tired. With his back to the cage, Mullen left an opening which Ewen seized. Ewen dropped Mullen with an elbow, ending the bout.
Mullen will be hoping this fight looks more similar to his first pro outing. He finished Liam Gregory with a head kick at RFL 5 in just 24 seconds.
Aron Bowe makes the 1174 mile roundtrip from Luxembourg to compete at the Liverpool event in the other corner. Bowe is 2-1 in his young professional career and has recently started competing out of Luxembourg. He had spent the rest of his career fighting in his native Peru.
Bowe has a pair of finishes due to punches on his amateur record, and Mullen has a proven track record of excitement in his fights. Many fans are calling this one the frontrunner for the fight of the night.
Who do you think takes this one?
