Matt Hallam believes he can get the better of former heavyweight Curtis Widmer when the two do battle at BAMMA 14.
The mixed martial artists will meet in the cage at Birmingham’s LG Arena on Saturday.
Widmer made his mark as a heavyweight in the amateur ranks.
But since dropping down to middleweight he has won both his contests as a professional.
Both Bostonian Hallam (3-2-0) and Widmer are known for their striking abilities, and Hallam hopes that will suit him just fine.
“I think, his style will allow me to work to my strengths,” he told The Standard.
“I’m determined to win this fight,
“It doesn’t matter in which round, I’ve just got to wait and take my chance.
“Hopefully, I can put on a show and let people know what I’m about.”
Hallam is keen to make his mark in BAMMA (the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts), following his defeat to Harry McLeman on the promotion’s previous bill.
He has been training under Jimmy Wallhead as part of Team Rough House.
However, Hallam recently took time out from his schedule to offer tips to members of Old Leake’s TKMA martial arts group.
Hallam (pictured) met with the younger students, signing gloves and belts, before taking a master class with the seniors.
