The Della brothers return to action on Saturday night as they co-headline Eternal MMA 31 in their backyard of Perth.
Josh Della will be looking to claim the promotions middleweight title against champion Isi Fitikefu, while Jack Della defends his welterweight title against Luke Howard.
The event takes place at the WA Italian Club in Perth, Western Australia.
Fitikefu brings an unblemished professional record and captured the middleweight title back in August 2017 with a first round knock-out over Darcy Vendy. Training under the guidance of Alex Prates, Fitikefu travels across the country to take on the self-proclaimed ‘King of Perth’.
Josh Della is coming off his biggest victory to date and proved himself as a force in Australia’s middleweight division when he stopped the experienced Brandon Ropati at Eternal 28. After losing his debut to the highly regarded Priscus Fogagnolo, Josh Della has now wracked up four wins on the trot.
Also on a four fight win streak is Josh Della’s brother Jack Della who will be looking to defend the welterweight crown against Luke Howard who according to Tapology, sports an identical 4-2 record.
Jack Della is coming off a debut international appearance where he submitted James Duckett on U.K promotion Cage Warriors back in October. Howard on the other hand, lost to Aldin Bates in his last outing having previously defeated Damian Fraser.
