After a white-hot start to 2023, Cage Warriors returns to Manchester’s BEC Arena for another blockbuster show. 

The 155lb title will be on the line in the evening’s main event, as champion ‘King’ George Hardwick looks to make a second defence of his belt against promotional newcomer Yan Liasse. 

In other key bouts, surging lightweight Adam Cullen will be looking for another finish when he takes on the debuting Dumitru Girlean, local favourite Andy Clamp returns to face talented kickboxer Ghassan Abdenabi, and former title challenger Chris Bungard is out for revenge against Gavin Hughes.

In a pair of late changes to the card, with both men’s previously scheduled opponents withdrawing from their bouts, The Netherlands’ Daan Duijs will now meet Next Generation’s Nathan Fletcher in the evening’s co-main event. 

An injury to Alexander Lööf has nixed his featherweight fight against Luke Riley. Riley will now face the undefeated, US-based Brit, Kallum Parker.  

In addition, the previously announced featherweight bout between Bailey Gilbert and Jordy Bakkes will no longer take place following an injury to Bakkes. A welterweight bout pitting Herkus Lukošiūnas against Alex Bold has also been removed after the former withdrew.

The full bout order and broadcast times for CW 152: Manchester (subject to change) are as follows:
