MLW issued the following press release, announcing Low Ki vs. Tom Lawlor for the MLW World Title in a Steel Cage Match at Intimidation Games:
CHICAGO – Salina de la Renta has invoked ex-World Champion Low Ki's rematch clause for March 2nd in Chicago. Not to be outdone, the new World Champ Tom Lawlor fast-tracked paperwork on the title bout and added a caveat: the rematch in Chicago will be in a solid steel cage.
MLW today announced a Steel Cage World Heavyweight Title Rematch: "Filthy" Tom Lawlor vs. Low Ki (presented by Salina de la Renta) at MLW: Intimidation Games presented by GoDaddy at Cicero Stadium. The event will air live on beIN SPORTS on Saturday night March 2nd.
Fans can buy tickets starting at $10 at MLWTickets.com.
A 12 year veteran cagefighter, Lawlor looks forward to the cage door locking as he battles Low Ki, who many believe could be at his most dangerous in this dark hour for Promociones Dorado. League officials signed off on the steel cage bout in part due to Promociones Dorado's reputation for interfering in matches. Can the steel cage keep out LA Park, Ricky Martinez, Hijo de LA Park or Salina de la Renta? League officials are designing a cage to ensure this in fact the case.
Low Ki has insisted on a media blackout since losing the championship at MLW SuperFight and has been reportedly in heavy training in Puerto Rico for the upcoming bout. There are unconfirmed reports that Low Ki has brought in several former opponents of Lawlor's both from MLW and from the UFC as he looks to decode Lawlor's fight game and exploit any weaknesses once the two step foot in the ring.
The solid steel cage World Championship bout will be one of two big bouts on the live Intimidation Games broadcast on beIN SPORTS presented by GoDaddy. Watch this big match live 9pm ET on Saturday night March 2nd from Chicago.
Will Low Ki bounce back and reclaim his gold? Will Tom Lawlor vanquish the most dominant champion in MLW history? Find out live in Chicago March 2nd at Cicero Stadium as MLW presents a live network special INTIMIDATION GAMES presented by GoDaddy for beIN SPORTS (buy tickets).
