Matrix Fight Night announces Featherweight title bout between Sanjeet Budhwar & Shyamanand

MATRIX FIGHT NIGHT, India's premium mixed-martial arts promotion announced a blockbuster main event for the MFN 13, which is set to take place on October 28th, 2023, at the Noida Indoor Stadium, Sector 21.

On the action-packed night that will feature 12 exciting bouts, India's very own Shyamanand, who has been on an impressive winning streak with 2 back to back KOs over two international opponents, will challenge the Featherweight Champion Sanjeet Budhwar for the title in the main event for a rematch years later, a media release said.

Shyamanand, who hails from Bihar, had called out Haryana's Sanjeet after a TKO win over his opponent Mido Mohamed from Egypt at MFN 12 on July 1st. Shyamanad’s only professional loss was at the hands of Budhwar; however, has improved drastically since then, creating immense buzz around this highly anticipated Main Event.

The 'Silent Killer' Sanjeet had beaten Atabek Abdimitalipov of Kyrgyzstan in a thrilling 5 round bout for the crown in December 2022. He has remained unbeaten in his last three MFN bouts and will hope to continue his streak against Shyamanand.

Speaking on the title bout, Sanjeet said: 

"I feel like I am ready for any challenge that is thrown at me. Shyamanand has risen through the ranks and has earned a title shot. But while he thinks he is ready for me, he will be in for a surprise at MFN 13."

Meanwhile, throwing the gauntlet, Shyamanand added: 

"I have been waiting to get in the cage with Sanjeet again for a long time. Winning the MFN title means everything because it represents that you are the best among the best. I will give my all to win and become the new MFN Featherweight Champion."

Meanwhile, South Asia’s biggest prospect, Afghanistan's most popular MMA star, Abdul Azim Badakhshi will make a return to MFN and will square off against Korea's Hae Jin Park (Road FC’s Featherweight champion) in the Co-Main event of the night, the release added.
