He was undefeated as an amateur with a 7-0 record and he also holds a 4-1 record in Kickboxing/Muay Thai as well. Selvarajah is excited to be making his BAMMA debut against the equally talented George.

Anthony Holmes was originally set for his pro debut at BAMMA 18 in Wolverhampton until the bout was cancelled after several opponent pull outs. The Ludus Magnus fighter from Doncaster went 3-0 as a amateur and is also looking to to put on a show for the Birmingham crowd on April 25th.


Harry Marple vs Chris Astley (Welterweight Bout)

Highly touted "Dirty" Harry Marple is making his BAMMA debut in April after his first pro victory in October of last year. Going 8-0 as an amateur the Team Kaobon fighter from Cannock has won the majority of his bout via submission.
