MLW Announces New Opening Round Match For 2021 Opera Cup Tournament

You can officially pencil in another opening round match for the 2021 Opera Cup Tournament.

This week, Major League Wrestling announced another first round bout for the tournament, which kicks off at the MLW Fightland event on 10/2 in Philadelphia, PA.

Check out the official announcement below confirming Matt Cross vs. Calvin Tankman for the tourney.

MLW today announced Matt Cross vs. Calvin Tankman in an Opera Cup opening round bout for MLW Fightland on Saturday, Oct. 2 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia and airing nationally on a later date.

Matt Cross has demanded opportunities in MLW and matchmaker Cesar Duran has granted him his wish with the international competitor officially set to compete in the 2021 Opera Cup. However, the Cleveland hybrid wrestler will be tasked with overcoming the momentum of the “Heavyweight Hustle” Calvin Tankman.

Tankman, who rumbled up the rankings in 2020-21, with an impressive half year winning streak looks to crush the competition and make history in his first outing in the Opera Cup. A major player in the making, Tankman has been training in his Indianapolis fight camp for the grueling grappling tournament as he readies to make history.

Will Cross unleash havoc on Tankman? Will Tankman’s explosive power and uncanny agility rule the ring?

Find out at FIGHTLAND on October 2nd in Philadelphia.
