Major League Wrestling passed along the following, announcing a match for Battle Riot:
This Thursday MLW returns to New York City for the first time in 16 years as the league presents the first-ever Battle Riot. But that not all. Major League Wrestling today announced a middleweight showcase match featuring Kotto Brazil vs. Myron Reed for this Thursday’s July 19th MLW Battle Riot at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.
Up and coming underdog Kotto Brazil will look to show the Big Apple if #KottoCan as he faces the debuting high-flying prospect Myron Reed in a middleweight bout.
Kotto is having a big 2018 but Myron Reed has been lighting the Midwest circuit on fire. This looks to be a great middleweight showcase match between two talented fighters. See them live this Thursday in NYC. (buy tickets)

The winner of the 40-man Battle Riot will receive a World Title shot anytime, anywhere. Elimination is by pinfall, submission or by throwing an individual over the top rope in this no DQ mega match. [Buy tickets]
