CAGE WARRIORS has secured the signature of top UK lightweight prospect Chris Fishgold on an exclusive five-fight contract.

The deal will commit the unbeaten Liverpool native to the organisation for the next 18 months.

Fishgold (7-0-0), who’ll debut for Cage Warriors later this year, has established himself as a potential future star since making his professional debut two years ago.

The 20-year-old, a member of the Next Generation camp, has picked up wins on prominent UK shows such as OMMAC and BAMMA.

Most recently he secured a second-round submission victory by rear-naked choke against Andy De-Vent last October. Six of Fishgold’s seven wins have come via submission.

“Cage Warriors has long been associated with building stars of the future and Chris Fishgold has all the raw materials to fit that bill,” said Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan.

“At just 20-years-old it’s still early days for Chris but I think he could become a very big name in this sport. He’s definitely worthy of this contract.”
