Hemel’s Ed Arthur will head to Sweden this weekend for his first professional fight abroad.
Unbeaten Arthur makes the journey to Stockholm, with trainer Denniston ‘Mad Max’ Sutherland, to feature in the co-main event at Superior Challenge 11 on Saturday.
The 25 year old has already made an impact at home and is now hoping to attract attention with his performance in the cage on the European stage.
The scaffolder, of Highfield, faces Swenden’s Martin Akhtar who, it is claimed, will be Arthur’s toughest opponent yet.
Arthur, who started in boxing before moving over to MMA, trains under Sutherland at the Mmax Gym - formerly Hemel Martial Arts - in Kings Langley.
