The first fight announced for Celtic Gladiator 13 sees Californian duo Michael Jackson and Mark Matsumoto are set to face off in a featherweight contest.
27-year-old Jackson fights out of Systems Training Centre with Hawthorne and is looking for his first career victory, after losing to Jonathan Quiroz at CXF 6.
Matsumoto is 31 and so far has lost both of his professional fights to more experienced opponents. This fight featuring two hungry young competitors is only the first of what promises to be a stacked card.
Celtic Gladiator 13 takes place on 14th July 2017 in El Monte, near Los Angeles.
