Pro contract on the line for San Shou fighters of Hamilton

Two of Bermuda’s san shou fighters will have an opportunity to impress for pro contracts this weekend in Florida.

Jermal Woolridge, Sentwali Woolridge and Samir Furqan will be competing this weekend at the 14th International Chinese Martial Arts Championships at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Florida.

This event will provide the opportunity for event promoter Nick Scrima to see the fighters first hand so that they can be considered for the World San Da League professional circuit to be launched later this year.

Master Scrima has already expressed an interest in both Jermal and Sentwali for the pro league and this event will provide him with an opportunity to see the fighters compete first hand.

Jermal is presently off island once again preparing for his match-up at Extreme Couture MMA Gym in Ontario, Canada.

This fight will serve as a warm-up match for his main priority this year, the Sanda World Cup taking place in China in October.
