V3FIGHTS: TYLER SMITH STEPS IN TO FIGHT PJ BONNER
On April 6 at Minglewood Hall in Memphis, TN, Tyler Smith will step in to replace injured fighter, Michael Bunch, to fight P.J. Bonner in the main event for V3Fights’ vacant welterweight title. Smith is currently 11-8 and fights out of Clinch Works MMA.
Both fighters are known for their explosive fighting style and striking. The last time Smith stepped inside the V3 cage was back in September of 2012 when he defeated Bonner’s teammate, Bobby Oller, in the first round. Smith knows that he is an underdog coming into this fight, but also knows that he deserves this title shot and has a great chance of becoming the new champion. According to Smith, “Being a main event fighter is exciting for me. I’m looking forward to it and I’m pumped. I think he’s going to try to stand and fight which I’m prepared for, but if he tries to take me to the ground I’m prepared for that as well. I’m ready for whatever tricks he has up his sleeve.”
Smith brings an exciting fighting style to the cage. He may be the most athletic fighter in the promotion and physically, may be the strongest competitor in the welterweight division. But will that be enough to stop Bonner and become V3’s next welterweight champion? All questions will be answered on April 6!
This event will be aired on Comcast Sports South.
