Current Cage Warriors Featherweight Champion Paddy Pimblett and current Cage Warriors Lightweight Champion Chris Fishgold have signed new multi-fight contracts with the promotion, expected to last through 2017.
Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan recently issued a statement about the resigning of the promotions two champions.
“We’ve developed the biggest names in Europe…Some of those names went to the UFC too soon, and some went at the right time. It is every fighter’s dream to get to the UFC, and the team and I are here to help not just Chris (and) Paddy, but all our athletes, achieve that dream, and it’s also our job to guide and develop their careers in the right way. After sitting down with both Chris and Paddy, they decided they wanted to represent their people and keep the cameras of Cage Warriors and eyes of the world on them and on Liverpool. They both want to be active and expect to defend their titles before the year is out” said Graham Boylan.
Pimblett recently won the CWFC Featherweight Title when he defeated Johnny Frachey by first round TKO at Cage Warriors 78, while Fishgold successfully defended the lightweight title against Jason Ponet at the very same event.
According to Boylan, both fighters want to stay active and both fighters are expecting to defend their championships at least once more before the year is up.
