Michael ‘Venom’ Page and Richard Kiely nearly came to blows at today’s Bellator Dublin press conference ahead of their co-main event clash on Sept 27.
Kiely stands with the opportunity to pull off one of the biggest upsets of the year when he gets in there with the globally-known superstar Page at Bellator Dublin in the 3Arena.
Irish athletes have a long and storied history of proving the oddsmakers wrong and with this fight – which many are calling a complete and utter mismatch – the SBG welterweight can well and truly turn the sport on its head with one solid punch.
And if the last few months have shown anything, it’s that Kiely can end anyone’s night if given the opportunity and Page, who suffered the first loss of his professional career against Douglas Lima earlier this year, can be finished.
Today’s press conference was one that displayed the self-described ‘Face Of Bellator’ at his sharpest as he verbally jabbed at MVP relentlessly before things eventually boiled over when the pair were brought together for the ceremonial staredown.
