Major League Wrestling (MLW) has announced an MLW World Heavyweight Championship match for the upcoming MLW SuperFight show on February 26.
MLW announced that MLW World Heavyweight Champion Alex Hammerstone will defend his title against Davey Richards at the show in Charlotte, North Carolina.
MLW posted the following statement on their website:
Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced World Heavyweight Champion Alex Hammerstone vs. Davey Richards for the championship at MLW SuperFight hosted by the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte on Saturday February 26, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
“Richards and Hammerstone, the 2021 Opera Cup winner and the World Champ – it doesn’t get any bigger,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “SuperFights are dream matches and this is one of the biggest matches we can make in MLW. The quintessential SuperFight in every sense.”
Undefeated since making his MLW debut last July, Davey Richards has been on a tear in MLW, including winning the 2021 Opera Cup. Ranked #1 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated for months, Richards has now cleared out all in the division setting up a aptly titled SuperFight with the reigning World Champ.
In a battle of power versus technique, Alex Hammerstone enters the bout having won the Battle Riot and dethroning Jacob Fatu.
With unprecedented momentum, Hammerstone will be in deep waters as he faces a veteran in his prime with a depth of experience in big title fights. Having won the ROH World Heavyweight Championship, Richards will look to cap off his return to the ring after a four year absence by claiming the world championship in one of wrestling’s most hallowed grounds: the Grady Cole Center.
Sports Illustrated broke the news of the big world championship bout this past week. Read the exclusive article here.
