PROGRESS has announced that their ATLAS Championship will be defended at their upcoming Chapter 72 event ‘Got Got Need’ from the Electric Ballroom in Camden, London.
Reigning Champion and British Wrestling Legend Doug Williams will be defending his belt against Michael Dante. Fans who aren’t aware of Dante will most likely know his former tag team partner from the Sumerian Death Squad…Aleister Black.
Dante earned his opportunity to challenge Williams at Chapter 71 when he defeated Damien Corvin. Williams himself became the Heavyweight/’Big Lads’ division Champion at Chapter 69 ‘Be Here Now’ when he defeated WWE UK star Joesph Conners, Rampage Brown and Rob Lynch in a fatal four way match.
This announcement follows the news that PROGRESS World Champion Travis Banks will be defending his title against the ‘World Cup’ winner Chuck Mambo. Banks recently took part in the WWE United Kingdom Championship tournament and is likely going to be part of the UK roster going forward however this has not yet been confirmed.
