Cage Warriors 86 features champ Nathaniel Wood vs. Josh Reed in London

Cage Warriors officials previously announced that bantamweight champion Nathaniel Wood was set to headline Cage Warriors 86 on Sept. 16 at Indigo at The O2 in London. Now, he has an opponent.

Promotion official recently announced that “The Prospect” Wood (11-3) will meet undefeated challenger Josh Reed (7-0) in the Cage Warriors 86 main event.

“After two sell-out shows at our London home in February and June, we’re delighted to head back to the Indigo at The O2 in September,” Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan stated. “Nathaniel has said the belt will not leave his home town, but Josh will bring a lot of support from Wales and is unbeaten as a professional, so I’m anticipating a strong, competitive fight.”

Wood captured the Cage Warriors title earlier this month with a first-round knockout of Marko Kovacevic at Cage Warriors 84. He’ll now look to defend the belt for the first time when he faces Reed, who is undefeated seven fights in to his professional run, including three wins under the Cage Warriors banner.

Cage Warriors officials also announced Corrin Eaton (9-2) vs. Dean Trueman (7-4), as well as Lewis Long (15-4) against an opponent to be determined for Cage Warriors 86.
