A catchweight bout of 150 pounds is slated to take place in November at Valor Fights 38 as Sawyer Rich will meet Cromwell Steward on the fight card coming from Nashville, Tennessee.
The fight booking was announced by Valor Fights on Friday.
Valor Fights 38 will come from the Nashville Fairgrounds Arena on November 5 and will be headlined by Zack Hicks meeting Nick Gehrts in a catchweight bout of 150 pounds.
Rich (1-0) made his professional debut in June and defeated Dalton Fox by submission at Valor Fights 34. Prior to making his professional debut, he went 6-2 in the amateur ranks and four of those wins came by stoppage.
“This could easily be the Fight of the Night,” said Rich. “He’s going to come out strong in the first round, and so am I. But he won’t be able to keep up with my pace in the second round, and that’s where I’m going to finish him. There’s no better high than having your hand raised after a tough, hard-fought battle — and that’s exactly what’s going to happen.”
Stewart (1-1-1) has gone unbeaten in his last two fights and enters Valor Fights 38 following a draw against Kenny Hill at Valor Fights 34. That was his first fight in nearly two years and all of his pro fights have gone to the scorecards.
“Sawyer is a tough opponent, but I believe I’m a tough fight for anyone,” says Stewart. “I’m going to go out there and be aggressive, but also wait for what he offers me — then I’m going to finish him as quickly as possible.”
