Always bet on Willie Mack. El Chocolate Caliente is moving on up the hill in MLW. Mack is in the major leagues getting his turn at bat.

Mack recently earned the #1 contender spot by defeating John Morrison and Lio Rush in three-way action on MLW Fusion.

MLW announced the time and place for Mack’s opportunity at the world title. Mack will challenge Alex Kane for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship at Fury Road on September 3 in Philadelphia, PA. This will be a first-time matchup for both competitors.


Mack is marked as Kane’s first title defense after the Suplex Assassin dethroned Alexander Hammerstone at Never Say Never. Kane also has the financial backing of Don King supporting the Bomaye Fight Club.

Fury Road will be presented as a live special available for streaming through the Fite+ package on Fite TV.

Are you excited for Alex Kane versus Willie Mack as the main event of Fury Road?
