MLW has been cooking a delicious stew lately with talent from across the world. Their next live event is already looking tasty with the announcement of the main event and the debut of CMLL’s top star.

MLW SuperFight is scheduled for February 3 from Philadelphia, PA. The main event will be Alex Kane defending the MLW World Heavyweight Championship against Satoshi Kojima from NJPW. Kojima is recognized as the first MLW World Heavyweight Champion. Kane currently holds the gold for 174 days and counting.

Kojima recently returned to MLW after twenty years to defeat Tom Lawlor at One-Shot. Go-ho-ho, indeed.

If there was any doubt about Kojima’s popularity in MLW after so many years away, the fans showered him with bread after the victory. Kojima is well-known as a bread enthusiast.

The MLW press release for SuperFight states it all:

It will be history in the making February 3rd. The man who propelled MLW to the international stage in the league’s infancy and made the top title in MLW truly a WORLD Heavyweight Championship 21 years later dances with destiny.

Satoshi Kojima, the first-ever MLW World Heavyweight Champion looks to complete his homecoming mission by becoming the first-ever TWO time MLW World Heavyweight Champion.

Standing in his way is a the reigning and defending World Heavyweight Champion Alex Kane.

The fight captain of the Bomaye Fight Club has devastated and dominated all since winning the belt. Choking out a who’s who, including: Jacob Fatu, Hammerstone, Matt Cardona, Willie Mack and Richard Holliday, Kane has distinguished himself as a world class grappler and ferocious fighter.

With Don King as the guiding light promoter for Kane’s ascension and Mr. Thomas deploying masterful fight plans dissecting every challenger, Kane is the gold standard in Major League Wrestling.

Now, 2 decades after his meteoric rise in MLW, Satoshi Kojima makes his move on regaining the title he helped to establish from 2002 to 2003.

The stage is set for a collision course as both champion and challenger seek to etch his name in the history books.

Will the legend of Kojima continue or fade to black as Kane topples perhaps the greatest threat to his title yet?

Lucha libre aficionados will appreciate the second addition to the SuperFight card.

MLW announced the debut of Mistico from CMLL. El Rey de Plata y Oro (The King of Silver and Gold) will take on rival Averno. Salina de le Renta has her slimy hands in this affair representing Averno.

Mistico is notable as the original Sin Cara in WWE. That career move didn’t pan out, but don’t let that run shade your opinion on Mistico. He is arguably the biggest star in lucha libre today. For a more recent glimpse, enjoy Mistico’s match against Rocky Romero in AEW.

Are you excited for these two matches at MLW SuperFight?
