Calvin Tankman vs. Matt Cross Added To FIGHTLAND In Philly


MLW Fightland Tickets Available NOW at MLW2300.com.


Major League Wrestling (MLW®) today announced Matt Cross vs. Calvin Tankman in an Opera Cup opening round bout for MLW Fightland on Saturday, Oct. 2 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia and airing nationally on a later date.


Matt Cross has demanded opportunities in MLW and matchmaker Cesar Duran has granted him his wish with the international competitor officially set to compete in the 2021 Opera Cup. However, the Cleveland hybrid wrestler will be tasked with overcoming the momentum of the "Heavyweight Hustle" Calvin Tankman.


Tankman, who rumbled up the rankings in 2020-21, with an impressive half year winning streak looks to crush the competition and make history in his first outing in the Opera Cup. A major player in the making, Tankman has been training in his Indianapolis fight camp for the grueling grappling tournament as he readies to make history.


Will Cross unleash havoc on Tankman? Will Tankman's explosive power and uncanny agility rule the ring?
