PROGRESS has announced a huge bout for their upcoming Chapter 69 show which will be taking place Sunday 20th May from the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, England. This will be the biggest UK based show that the company has ever produced outside of their spiritual home in London.
205 Live Superstar and former PROGRESS World Champion Mark Andrews will be facing New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Zack Sabre Jr. Both men are stalwarts of the UK independent wrestling scene and have branched out in a massive way internationally but in uniquely different ways. Andrews has been a featured performer on the aforementioned WWE Network show 205 Live and has also been involved in one of the more intriguing feuds on the UK scene against his former friend and tag team partner; Eddie Dennis.
Zack Sabre Jr himself has seen a huge leap in exposure ever since his move to New Japan Pro Wrestling, his inclusion in the successful Suzuki-Gun stable alongside Japanese legend Minoru Suzuki has seen him win the New Japan Cup and go on to face Kazuchika Okada in the main event of NJPW’s Sakura Genesis PPV show.
This should be a clash of styles between two of the finest export talents that the UK scene has produced over the past decade and you can catch the action shortly after the fact on Demand PROGRESS.
