Fresh off a quick knockout win over Grant Blackler to capture the Fury Featherweight title, Pat Promrangka (pictured) will make his promotional return on June 8 to face South Australian fighter Suasday Chau.
The interstate match-up was announced by the promotion on Tuesday, and will serve as the main event for the show.
In what was his debut appearance for Fury, it took Promrangka just 1:50 to upset the heavily favored former champion back in mid February at Fury 5. After going into the tilt as a huge underdog, “Warapot” dropped the TUF “Smashes” cast member with a solid right hand before snatching the title with a flurry of punches. With a record of 5-1 in his last 6 appearances, the Impact MMA Gym fighter will be looking to continue his recent form when he meets the Adelaide native.
For Suasday Chau, it was an arm-bar submission win over Fury stalwart Callum Lewis at Fury 5 that earned him a spot opposite the newly crowned Featherweight king. Outside the promotion, Chau last fought at Fightworld Cup 14 where he was beaten by New Zealand’s Kairin Moses. After uncharacteristically missing weight for the bout, Chau looked to fade in the second round and was stopped via TKO. This will be his second appearance for Fury.
Both Callum Lewis and Mike Aarts will want to put recent results behind them when they lock horns at the show. The two men will be searching to get back on track after losing to Chau and Brendan O’Reilly respectively at Fury 5.
Fury 6 will take place on April 6 at the Caloundra RSL in Queensland, Australia.
