MLW sent the following to eWrestlingNews for immediate release:
Tom Lawlor will defend his coveted World Heavyweight Championship at the scene of the crime where CONTRA Unit first struck: Chicago’s Cicero Stadium. His opponent: the undefeated 300-pound “Samoan Smashing Machine” Jacob Fatu of Contra Unit.
MLW today announced World Heavyweight Title Fight: “Filthy” Tom Lawlor vs. Jacob Fatu (of CONTRA Unit) for MLW: Kings of Colosseum at Cicero Stadium in Chicago. The event is a TV taping for beIN SPORTS on Saturday night July 6th with a 7 p.m. bell time.
Tickets start at $10 at http://www.MLWTickets.com.
CONTRA Unit first struck in MLW on March 2nd, hijacking a live broadcast on beIN SPORTS. Locking the steel cage moments after a Lawlor title fight, the trio of outsiders Fatu, Josef Fatu, and Simon Gotch would unleash hell en route to Fatu climbing the steel cage and crushing Lawlor with a massive splash. In the aftermath, Lawlor would be hospitalized and suffer injuries which would take him out of action for 5 weeks.
CONTRA has continued to terrorize Lawlor and MLW throughout the spring with planned attacks in New York during the Battle Riot, a post-fight press conference and most recently assaulting Tom Lawlor in a Milwaukee parking lot last week.
CONTRA Unit would continue their campaign of psychological attacks hijacking the MLW TV truck live television and playing a video featuring a beaten Lawlor being assaulted with the champion’s hair being ripped out.
As far as Lawlor is concerned, enough is enough. Lawlor has demanded he get the very dangerous 300 pounder one-on-one and has acquiesced to a title fight against the undefeated Fatu.
Has Lawlor fallen for the shadowy international cabal’s tactics? Or, is Fatu entering Lawlor’s world of pain where the 10-year UFC veteran looks to fight Fatu in a fair battle with championship gold hanging in the balance?
Will CONTRA capture the top championship and seize control of MLW’s most prized championship? Will Tom Lawlor vanquish the global dealers in violence? Find out LIVE July 6 at Cicero Stadium (buy tickets).
