Anthony Smith vs. Adlan Amagov Booked For Strikeforce Challengers 20


A middleweight contest has just been booked for Novembers Strikeforce Challengers 20 event in the form of Anthony Smith vs. Adlan Amagov.

Strikeforce Challengers 20 takes place at what seems to be the new home for the Strikeforce Challengers series, the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on November 18th.

As it sits, this bout is expected to make the Showtime Broadcast.

While the event is still being put together by company officials, the announcement of Smith vs. Amagov is the second official bout to join the card, which will also feature the previously announced contest between Ronda Rousey and Julia Budd.

Last seen at Strikeforce Challengers 17 picking up a knockout victory over Ben Lagman on the evenings undercard, Smith hopes to shine and continue to climb the Strikeforce middleweight ladder. His last win marked his eighth in nine bouts, all of which came via stoppage.

Amagov is also a Challengers 17 victor. He was last seen in his promotional debut besting Ronald Stallings on the aforementioned Strikeforce Challengers 17 card. Prior to the victory, the Russian born fighter posted six knockouts in his last seven wins.

We will keep you posted as this card develops.
