Kiefer Crosbie vs Joe McColgan set for BAMMA 26 in Dublin


BAMMA have confirmed to us today that Irishmen Kiefer Crosbie (1-0) and Joe McColgan (1-0) will square off in a 17olb bout at BAMMA 26 on 10th September 2016.

Fight Academy Ireland’s McColgan made a successful pro debut defeating Tommy Hogan by rear naked choke in the 3rd round of a 165lb catchweight bout at BattleZone 14 in November 2015.

SBG Ireland’s Crosbie was also victorious in his first pro outing avenging his amateur loss to Keith McCabe via TKO in the main event of BattleZone 15 in April 2016.

McColgan fought and beat Crosbie’s SBG Ireland team mates Levi Keogh and James “Sexual” Heelan in the amateur ranks back in 2012 in the Cage Contender promotion and had adopted the nickname “The SBG Hunter”.

However due to several injuries which saw Joe forced to sit out for over 3 years the rivalry had dampened somewhat but when Crosbie issued an open letter on Facebook looking for an opponent for the upcoming BAMMA card McColgan was quick to accept.

BAMMA 26: Paul Craig vs Chris Fields takes place on 10th September 2016 at The 3 Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
