MLW has announced Killer Kross (with Scarlett Bordeaux) vs. Matt Cross as MLW presents Battle Riot IV at New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
Demanding a match in New York City, MLW matchmaker Cesar Duran has acquiesced by signing Killer Kross vs. Matt Cross for this Thursday’s Battle Riot card. A harbinger of chaos, the 6’4″ fighter has been a threat wherever he’s battled. Returning to MLW earlier this year, Killer Kross decimated his opponent and in the process put the entire league on notice.
Now Kross faces a decorated veteran of the squared circle, Matt Cross. Spending the last few years competing in over 28 countries and collecting several championships, Cross’ blends a hybrid fighting style of speed, aerial attacks and Lucha making him a complex competitor for Kross.
