DAVE KEELEY will return to Cage Warriors action this weekend when he faces Eddy Bengtsson at CWFC 45 at the HMV Forum in Kentish Town, London.
Keeley (5-4-0) replaces Jay Mortimore for Saturday night’s clash with Bengtsson, after Mortimore opted to withdraw from the scheduled bout last week due to illness.
It will be a third appearance on a Cage Warriors card for Keeley. Last year, the 30-year-old heavyweight picked up a first round KO victory over Joel Wyatt at Fight Night 1 in Jordan, before losing to Andreas Kraniotakes at CWFC 43 last July.
Bengtsson (4-2-0) is a Swedish wrestler who competed in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. The 32-year-old last fought when he submitted Istvan Kalmar inside a minute in May of last year.
The Gothenburg native, who’ll be making his Cage Warriors debut, lost to Aleksander Emelianenko in 2010 but also holds wins over Ivaylo Markov, Vladimir Kuchenko and Andy Hillhouse.
