CAGE WARRIORS FIGHTING Championship are to reschedule their next show after the resignation of CEO Graham Boylan.

The Corkman revealed to The42 yesterday that he’s stepping down after over four years in the job, leaving Europe’s leading MMA organisation with an uncertain future.

Cage Warriors had one forthcoming show scheduled before Boylan’s resignation. CWFC 75 was pencilled in for Saturday, 21 March, at the Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park in London.

It’s understood that undefeated light-heavyweight Karl Moore was one Irish fighter who was booked to feature in London, but the event will now be postponed while the Cage Warriors Board of Directors focuses its efforts on finding a new CEO.

Cage Warriors say they hope to announce a new date for their next event shortly, but in the meantime all their contracted athletes will be granted a one-fight exemption to compete for other promotions.
