What happens when 355 lbs. of “Heavyweight Hustle” collides with the 6’6” 265 lbs. “British Bulldog”? It’s a hoss fight at War Chamber ‘23!

For the first time-ever, Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Calvin Tankman will lock horns and grapple in the Big Apple.

The explosive low center of gravity of Tankman presents a unique challenge for the 2019 Opera Cup winner Smith. Tankman, an MMA practitioner with uncanny agility, is battle tested.

Fresh off a year-long reign as a World Tag Team Champion, Tankman will battle another man who enjoyed a dominant reign as champion in the tag team division in DBS.

The captain of the “British Bulldog” fight team, Smith has his eyes on getting in the mix for a world title shot. Tankman, pivoting to a return to a singles career, has a big statement to make to matchmakers.

“The quintessential unstoppable force meeting an immovable object,” said MLW Founder Court Bauer. “This is going to be a heavy-hitting hoss fight. New York fans live for precisely this type of big man bout and they’re in for a great one with Tank-Smith.”
