Fabian ‘The Assassin’ Edwards Vs. Louis ‘KO’ King - Middleweight Bout
Fabian ‘The Assassin’ Edwards is surging in the Middleweight division and his performances have demanded a sterner test. Stepping up to answer the call is UK Middleweight K1 terror Louis ‘KO’ King, who steps back into the MMA arena once more. In a bout that will likely tear the house down, these proven finishers will go head to head in search of another highlight reel at the Metro Arena on 15th December.
Fabian ‘The Assassin’ Edwards (2-0) instantly has a name that might sound familiar in BAMMA, that’s because his older brother Leon was the former Lonsdale Welterweight Champion for the promotion. Training alongside him at UTC, the Middleweight prospect looks to build on his most recent devastating performance where he took out Aaron Kennedy with a 2nd round submission. He now faces a tougher challenge in the devastating striker that is Louis ‘KO’ King, and a victory here will propel him further up the division he believes he has the potential to dominate.
Louis ‘KO’ King (1-0) from Haslemere in Surrey has been kickboxing for 8 years. He has been a professional K1 fighter since November 2009, and with a long list of KO’s and stoppages he now follows his brother Tony into the MMA arena at BAMMA. With one TKO victory against Andy Manzolo back in 2012, he now looks to move further into the sport and steps into a bout featuring two phenomenal strikers as he takes on Fabian ‘The Assassin’ Edwards.
