Revolution Pro (Rev Pro) has announced the second bout for their Uprising 2018 event. The British Heavyweight Championship will be on the line at Bethnal Green’s York Hall.
Tomohiro Ishii will be defending against David Starr. Starr issued a challenge via Twitter earlier this week and Rev Pro management have honoured the request. Starr is already the Cruiserweight Champion of the promotion and will look to become the first two-weight class Champion in company history.
Rev Pro has also announced that Zack Sabre Jr and Minoru Suzuki of Suzuki-gun defend will against Aussie Open on the night. ZSJ and Suzuki have been Champions since January when they defeated Moustache Mountain. Aussie Open are the current Number 1 contenders to the titles.
Revolution Pro (Rev Pro) also debuted on FreeSportsUK this past Friday. The UK based company will be using the nationwide channel as the home for their new TV show going forward.
You can check out the exclusive interview we conducted with Rev Pro owner Andy Quildan here. When we discussed the timing of the new show Andy confirmed that “WoS had no impact on our decision. In all honesty whilst I watch as much product as possible from WWE, ROH, NJPW, CMLL to all the indies here in the UK, aside from learning best (or at times worst) practice I try not to let what others are doing dictate the way I choose to run my business.”
