After three successful U.K shows featuring some of the biggest stars the U.K has to offer; Absolute Championship Berkut is set to mark its return to our shores on September 23. for ACB 70 in the Sheffield Arena. In the past, ACB have focused their attention on U.K fighters near the top of the ladder which makes their most recent announcement a pleasant surprise. Yesterday, the Russian-based promotion revealed that two of the U.K’s most highly touted prospects will battle it out in a 145lb match-up as Shoaib Yousaf takes on Jordan Vucenic.
After an unbeaten amateur career which saw him claim gold at the IMMAF championships in 2016, Yousaf signed for ACB and is yet to see a second round having secured two first round finishes including a TKO victory over Javonne Morrison at ACB 54.
Much like his opponent, Vucenic also enters the bout on the back of a flawless amateur career, which saw him finish all but one of the opponents that were put before him.
Earlier this year Vucenic made a successful pro debut securing a second round submission over the heavy favourite and multiple Muay Thai world champion Panicos Yusuf at Tanko 4.
These are no doubt two of the hottest prospects on the U.K scene but who will leave with their flawless record in tact and who will slump to the first loss of their professional career.
