Cage Warriors Releases Lightweight Champion
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.18.2014



Cage Warriors Fighting Championship has vacated their lightweight title by releasing their current champion. The promotion has announced that Ivan Buchinger has been released from his contract and that a new lightweight champion will be determined by a fight between Curt Warburton and Stevie Ray at Cage Warriors 69 on June 7th. The show takes place in London, UK.

Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan said in a statement, "Despite having competed for us on six occasions, Ivan claimed that he didn't understand his contract and decided that he no longer wanted to fight for us under the terms that he had agreed. But it's company policy not to be held to ransom by any fighter, so we were happy to let him go. We have an incredibly stacked lightweight division, as evidenced by the meeting of Curt Warburton and Stevie Ray for the belt on June 7, so losing one fighter from that division is merely a drop in the ocean. Nevertheless, I thank Ivan for his contribution and wish him the best for his future."
