Undefeated prospect Dominique Wooding has called to face Andy Young after a fight with Ryan Curtis failed to materialise in 2016.
There had been rumours that Wooding (3-0) was set to face SBG Charlestown’s Curtis on December’s BAMMA 27 card, but the fight was never officially signed.
Now the Warrior Fight Series Flyweight champion has called for to be matched-up with perennial 125lb contender, Young.
The fight was first floated during an exchange on Wooding’s Facebook page, where Young responded: “I have some very big plans and things in the works in the first quarter of next year pal. I’m sure it would be a great fight, keep doing what you’re doing hopefully happens down the line.”
Potential challenger Young (10-8) was involved in one of the European fights of the year in 2016, when he took 125lb kingpin Rany Saadeh to the limit in Dublin, losing a decision to the German at BAMMA 26.
Following that fight, Young traveled to Kiev, Ukraine where he knocked out undefeated Alexander Barabash to win the WWFC Flyweight title.
Since the initial discussion, Wooding has once again called to face the Full Contact Contender Flyweight champion, tweeting: “Since Pussy boy @ChaosCurtis keeps stalling out a fight with me, I WANT @AndyTazYoung! What you say to that?? @BAMMA @BellatorMMA”

Speaking exclusively to MMA Plus, “The Blank Panther” – who has finished all three of his pro fights by KO/TKO – explained why Young is the perfect foe.
“Curtis is all talk until he gets contracts sent to him. I want Andy Young because he’s one of top flyweights in the UK, Europe and he is coming off a good win his last.”
BAMMA 28 on Feb. 24 in Belfast could serve as an ideal location should the fight get signed, with Young hailing from Northern Ireland.
