‘ONE more’ by name, and one more by nature - Milford Haven fighter David Round will return to Mixed Martial Arts in February when he takes on Craig ‘Duffer’ Turner in a 77 kilogram welterweight clash.

The fight will take place at the Hermitage Leisure Centre in Whitwick, Leicestershire, on Saturday, February 24 at the ‘Rise of the Gladiators’ show.

Round hasn’t competed in an MMA bout since losing to Andy De-Vent in Manchester in December 2016, after which he stepped down from that particular discipline to concentrate on K1 fights.

He has taken a break completely from fighting since September, concentrating on playing the rugby season with Milford Haven RFC, but has accepted a challenge from Turner, who has won eight and lost just one of his nine contests.

“I’ve been called out of retirement by an unknown fighter,” laughed Round.

“He’s using my name to get himself known and I’m looking forward now to getting back in the cage.”

The 31-year-old is now very much considered a veteran of the MMA scene, having fought on 42 occasions.

And he will be back in the limelight at Rise of the Gladiators, with him and Turner headlining the show was the main event.

Round is again being supporters by a host of local companies, with JP Scaffolding his main sponsor.

The only downside for local MMA fans is the date of the fight clashes with the Adrenalin Fight Nights event in Tenby Leisure Centre, meaning they will not get to see one of Pembrokeshire’s most infamous performers at a home show.
