Interim flyweight title fight set for M-1 Challenge 103 in Shenzhen
An interim flyweight title fight will headline M-1 Challenge 103 in Shenzhen. The show is set for Saturday and the main event pits Alexander Pletenko against Chris Kelades.
Current M-1 flyweight champion Alexander Doskalchuk had originally been scheduled to face Kelades in China. But he pulled out with an injury and has been replaced by Pletenko.
Kelades (13-4) hails from Canada and is a UFC veteran. He’s won four out of his last five fights, but dropped a decision to Pletenko on an M-1 card last year.
Pletenko (17-6) is riding a four fight winning streak but has been out of action for over a year.
The Ukrainian faced Kelades in his M-1 debut and will be looking to make it two wins out of two against the Canadian straweight in the rematch.
