The Shark Fights promotion continues to add to their already loaded card for September 11. The event — Shark Fights 13 — will take place at the Amarillo Civic Center in Amarillo, Texas.
“Words cannot express how elated we are that Paul Daley has agreed to fight for our organization,” Shark Fights president Brent Medley stated. “Daley is arguably one of the best 170-pound fighters in the world.
“We are currently in the process of choosing Daley’s opponent. Several marquee fighters are being considered, and a decision will be made very soon. This is shaping up to be an incredible card. Numerous A-list fighters have been confirmed for the Shark Fights 13 roster.”
Daley joins the card that already features notable bouts such as Keith Jardine (15-8-1) vs. Trevor Prangley (22-6-1), Houston Alexander (10-6) vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (9-6), and Drew McFedries (8-6) vs. Joey Villasenor (27-7).
“I’m very excited to be fighting in the U.S. again,” Daley stated. “Despite my conduct during the Koscheck fight, which I agree is inexcusable, fans in the United States have been very supportive. For that I am very grateful.”
