Undefeated heavyweight Steve Mowry (5-0) got a new adversary for the upcoming Bellator 215 this Friday night in Uncasville, Connecticut.
The 26-year-old American had to face Ahmed Samir Hefny (5-0), but the Egyptian is unable to participate and thus he’ll be replaced by Darion Abbey (0-0), who will be making his professional debut.
Mowry debuted in Bellator in September 2018 and he has won all of his 5 bouts.
Darion Abbey, 25, had 13 amateurs fights and only 1 defeat.
