Major League Wrestling (MLW®) today announced “Filthy” Tom Lawlor vs. Davey Richards in an Opera Cup opening round bout for MLW Fightland on Saturday, Oct. 2 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia and airing nationally on a later date.
The 2020 Opera Cup champion looks to go back-to-back and keep the century old cup in Team Filthy’s grip. In order to do so the former World Heavyweight Champion and 2018 Battle Riot winner will have to outwrestle and outlast Davey Richards.
Davey Richards made his MLW debut in July and now the hunt is on to climb the rankings and make a statement with a big win over Lawlor, propelling the “American Wolf” to the semi-finals of the Opera Cup. But will he be able to out grapple the 10-year UFC veteran?
