The eagerly awaited Heavyweight clash between James Thompson and Piotr Kusmierz is off. A replacement fight featuring another pair of high profile Heavyweights has been added to the Cage Rage 28: VIP card. James McSweeney will take on Roman Webber at The Troxy in East London.
The change was announced with an official statement on cagerage.tv:
“Due to the very nature of the sport, training accidents do happen and on this occasion, it couldn't get much worse as both the main bout fighters, Thompson & Kusmierz, have fallen foul of training incidents within 24 hours of each other. But as always, we have fighters who are ready at a moments notice and we are excited to be able to announce a Heavyweight replacement bout, featuring 2 fighters, who will give it everything in what promises to be a bruising encounter. Hold on to the edge of your seats as James McSweeney and Roman Webber collide at Cage Rage - VIP on 20th September.”
