There will be a Cumbrian topping the bill at Xtreme Kombat and BUDO's show at Hoops Basketball Centre in Barrow tonight, with Workington's Jordan Holmes fighting for the vacant Amateur Welterweight Championship.

Mixed Martial Arts fighter Holmes will be taking on Yannick Mazepo in what is the main event of a show Xtreme Kombat are billing as 'the biggest combat show Cumbria will have seen.'

Holmes is looking to bounce back from losing his last two fights, having most recently gone up against the undefeated Kyran Sturrock in BUDO 37 at Bolton in March and he is confident he will be taking the belt back up the coast.

He said: "I'm really excited, I can't wait to get in there and do what I do, which is perform.

"I don't know too much about my opponent, but I'm just going to go out there and look to put on a performance and dominate from start to finish.

"I think he's a judo guy, so he might try and clinch and try and take it to the floor, but I've fought wrestlers and I've fought judo guys before and he won't be able to take me down.

"I'll just dominate wherever the fight goes, I'll come out and establish my range and keep him well out and if I want to take the fight to the floor then I'll do that and I'll finish him there."

The other title up for grabs on the night will be the Amateur Light Welterweight Championship, with champion Bart Krol going up against a late replacement in Irishman Patrick Lehane.

It's been a whirlwind journey from Cork to Barrow for Lehane, who said: "I was meant to fight on a different show in Norwich, but my opponent pulled out. This was the only fight that was available and I've made the long drive to get here."
