Minoru Suzuki, Marina Shafir and Killer Kelly are the first three talent announcements for GCW's Josh Barnett's Bloodsport, set for Friday, October 22nd in Los Angeles, California.
Suzuki will also be a part of the card that takes place the next day, War Ready, when he will face Nick Gage in the main event. This will be Suzuki's third Bloodsport event as he has a win over Matt Riddle (2018) and a draw with Barnett (2019).
Shafir will be making her Bloodsport debut, but her opponent is not yet known. A former pro MMA fighter, Shafir was signed to WWE NXT in 2018 and was cut in June 2021.
Kelly lost via submission to Allysin Kay on the Bloodsport 3 event in October 2020. She was previously signed to WWE and competed both in NXT UK and the 2018 Mae Young Classic.
Both Bloodsport and War Ready will take place at the Ukrainian Cultural Center and will also air on Fite.TV.
