Jacob Fatu vs. Matt Cross World title match set for MLW Fusion: Alpha


MLW has revealed two matches for next Wednesday's edition of Fusion: Alpha, including one for the World title.

Before his historic title vs. title clash with National Openweight Champion Alexander Hammerstone on next Thursday's Fightland Vice TV special, MLW Champion Jacob Fatu will defend against Matt Cross. The match will serve as Cross' MLW singles debut while also being Fatu's eleventh championship defense. 

Cross demanded the match with new matchmaker Cesar Duran the past two weeks and was granted his wish.

After announcing the creation of the Women's Featherweight Championship last week, MLW will also hold only their second women's match in company history next week as Willow Nightingale will face one half of the Sea Stars in Ashley Vox. There has yet to be a formal tournament announced as of yet.

Also set for next week: Rivera and Slice Boogie of 5150 will take on Middleweight Champion Myron Reed and Jordan Oliver of Injustice as their rivalry begins to get heated up.
