Lio Rush made it known he was looking for a fight and Davey Richards wasted no time in stepping up and making a dream match a reality.

A match worthy of being heralded a superfight, Richards and Rush have dominated in their respective MLW careers, yet have never crossed paths in MLW.

Rush, a flashy and dominant MLW World Middleweight Champion, Richards, a trailblazing National Openweight Champion. Both at the top of their game and determined to make a statement.

Training hard in St. Louis at the Team Ambition gym, Richards vows to hold nothing back as he battles the brilliant and braggadocios Rush.

With immense momentum on his side, the “Man of the Hour” Lio Rush enters the big fight fresh off an extraordinary global tour, competing in high-profile bouts from Japan to Europe.
