Combat Vision MMA were lucky enough to speak to DFC fighter and IMMAF World Championship bronze medalist Scott “The Bear” Trelford ahead of his ISKA British heavyweight title fight against Julius Werdis at Clan Wars 28. Scott is ranked 16th in the UK/Ireland amateur heavyweight rankings.
Combat Vision MMA asked Scott about his thoughts on the title fight being announced, his previous title fight at Golden Ticket Promotions 3 and his experience competing at IMMAF.
“When I got the news that I had the title fight on Clan Wars, I was super excited. Last time, I fought on Clan Wars 24 I think it was, I loved it. It is such an awesome show and that fight was special to me, as that night I got to share the cage with my coach Steve McCombe for his 50th professional fight and his last fight before retirement. Clan Wars is special to me and to win that belt would mean the world to me. I would love to be able to hand it over to Steve!
“My last title fight for the Golden Ticket Promotions heavyweight title, didn’t go to plan I took the fight short notice, I got sick the week of the fight and even on the night, I wasn’t myself in there. I believe that if you get a Scott Trelford that’s 100%, then your not going to have a very good time! Everyday I am in the club learning and my team is full of killers. We bring the best out of each other”
“This will be my 8th fight. I have fought in front of big crowds, I have fought the best in the world at the IMMAF’S. This is just another day at the office for me, which I believe will work in my favour as I have been through a lot of different scenarios with my experience. I will be cool, calm and collected in the cage”
“I don’t know anything about Julius During my fight camps, I don’t focus on my opponent as they can change, I train to better myself in every aspect of the sport. If you are a wrestler, I will out wrestle you, if you are a boxer, I will out box you and if you are a jitz guy I will submit you!”
“This is going to be one hell of a fight and I promise there will be fireworks!”
