Tanasa lost his belt to fellow rising talent Jimmy Fell back in October, but with Bury fighter Fell vacating to pursue a pro career, the gold is up for grabs again in the one-night tournament at the Charter Hall in Colchester on March 7.

Tanasa (6-2), a former CWSE lightweight champion too, will start as favourite for the tournament, which will be fought over two rounds in the semi-final and three in the final.

The other fighters gunning for the belt are Kamil Uchman (5-1), Yuki Angdembe (4-2) and Will Drewitt (7-1), in what is one of the finest amateur MMA fields you will find anywhere this year.
