Denis Kang has confirmed to Top MMA News that he will be fighting for the Warrior One Middleweight title on December 18th. The card is scheduled for Montreal. W-1 President Jack Bateman confirmed the date with Top MMA News. It is an odd date to choose as a huge boxing match Bernard Hopkins vs Jean Pascal is the same night in Quebec City and the commission should be busy there.

Kang is coming off a draw to Paulo Filho in Australia. He previously beat Dae Won Kim in his only W-1 appearance to date. There are plenty of names being floated around for his December 18th opponent including Jeremy Horn although nothing is confirmed at this time and other opponents are being looked at.

It was rumored that W-1 would be holding a Montreal card on November 20th although that date was never announced. Now it seems that date has been pushed back a month.

Stay tuned for an exclusive Denis Kang interview in the coming days at Top MMA News where Kang will discuss his fight against Filho as well as his upcoming bout.
