“American” Wolf Davey Richards will step foot in a New Japan Pro Wrestling ring for the first time in a decade in a historic interpromotional title bout.
NJPW will host the next MLW National Openweight Championship title bout.
The National Openweight title fight will feature Davey Richards vs. NJPW’s Clark Connors at Music City Mayhem July 30 in Nashville.
“New Japan hosting this interpromotional title fight is historic,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Davey wanted this fight bad and Connors is a beast. The implications of the outcome of this title fight could ripple through two promotions.”
Richards dethroned Alex Kane last month in New York City to claim the National Openweight title and become only the third fighter to ever hold the belt. Could Clark Connors be the fourth? Find out next Saturday, July 30.
