ACB 88: Potter vs Held and Gormley vs Boser announced for show in Brisbane, Australia

ACB 88 is getting bigger and bigger, with two blockbuster fights announced for the Australian fight fans on June 16th, as Marcin Held makes his ACB debut, taking on Australia’s own Callan Potter in a mouth-watering lightweight bout. A heavyweight showdown between Canada’s Tanner Boser and American Chase Gormley has also been announced for the card.

Australia’s own Callan Potter (16-6) makes his ACB debut after an impressive eight-fight winning streak, leading to eight consecutive finishes on the Australian MMA circuit. His impressive style has seen none of his twenty-two professional bouts head to the judges’ scorecards.

His opponent needs no introduction. Marcin Held (23-7) will make his ACB debut in Brisbane, where he looks to make a mark on the lightweight division. The Polish jiu-jitsu wizard has shared the cage with the likes of Michael Chandler, Diego Sanchez and Alexander Sarnavskiy so far. On June 16th, a new chapter begins in Australia.

Chase Gormley (14-7) will look to return to the win column on his first venture to Australia, with the heavyweight looking to make his mark on the ACB 265lbs division. Gormley has shared the cage with the likes of Brendan Schaub and Stefan Struve as he enters the eleventh year of his professional MMA career.

His opponent, hailing from Canada will be Tanner Boser (14-4). After two decision losses started his ACB career, the heavyweight bounced back with consecutive victories over Dave Cryer and DJ Linderman. “The Bulldozer” has competed in Dubai, St. Petersburg, Montreal and Manchester since signing for ACB… but will head down under for the first time!
