(PHILADELPHIA) — Major League Wrestling (MLW®) today announced Love, Doug vs. Ichiban at the FUSION TV taping portion of MLW Slaughterhouse on Saturday, October 14 at Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena.
Grab tickets at MLW2300.com and the 2300 Arena box office. Tickets start at $15.
Two emerging middleweights will collide with championship implications as Ichiban and Love, Doug square off for the first time in MLW ring!
The match is a part of the FUSION portion of the card.
The pride of the NumberOneDojo has been collecting wins since debuting this summer, including most recently a win over “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams.
Impressing league officials with his fury of lethal puroresu, the masked middleweight now looks to get in the mix for a shot at the World Middleweight Championship. In order to do so, Ichiban will have to get by the man who identifies his wrestling style as a blend of “romance and wrestling” in Love, Doug.
Wrestling’s cupid has been on a quest to win the heart of “International Popstar” B3CCA, and along the way has fluttered his way to several wins, putting him in consideration for a title match.
Now Love, Doug looks to put a shot to the heart of Ichiban’s momentum as both competitors set their sights on a title shot.
