STAV Economou and Walter Gahadza both face huge MMA fights at a packed Wembley Arena on Friday.

The duo have endured gruelling training camps in the build up to their bouts, which will be shown live on ITV4.

And coach Dan Burzotta believes Economou and Gahadza - who train at his TSG base in Westcliff - could not be in better shape.

“These are massive fights for Walter and Stav and they are both looking great,” said Burzotta.

“It’s another BAMMA fight night which is huge, Wembley Arena is sold out and it will be watched by millions around the world on the internet so this is up there with the biggest fights they’ve had.

“But they’re in the best shape possible for them and it’s great to see them getting these opportunities.

“The MMA scene is very close-knit and we have a great reputation at TSG, which definitely helps in getting them the fights.

“However, it’s mainly about their hard work and talent and it’s brilliant that two guys who train in Westcliff will be going out for such big fights.”

Economou, who is nicknamed Crazy Bear, faces Chi Perry in an intriguing world title contest.

And Burzotta is confident Economou will again be able to shine on the big stage.

“Bear has trained so hard and he’s ready to go now,” said Burzotta.

“The guy he’s fighting is a six foot 10 inch tall heavyweight but I’m tall myself, which has helped us.

“I’m six foot four inches so I’ve been training with him to get him ready and he’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen so I’m sure he will do well.”

Gahadza has also been training hard and spent six weeks in America to sharpen his skills and fitness in the build up to his rematch with the controversial Colin Fletcher.

“Walter was out in Denver and said he’s never been so cold or so tired in his life,” said Burzotta.

“It was minus 15 at times when Walter was out there and he said it was a bit like the film Cool Runnings!

“But he’s back now, he’s bang on where he needs to be and it’s all going well for him.”

Gahadza’s previous fight with Fletcher was shrouded in controversy back in May 2016.

The fight was stopped inside the opening round when Fletcher was adjudged to have used an illegal elbow.

But Gahadza is feeling strong in the build up to their second battle.

“Training has been great,” said Gahadza.

“America was different and I was in high altitude, which was something different for me.

“This is just like any other fight for me really, but I am looking forward to settling unfinished business.”

Closer to home, Burzotta is now also planning another fight night which will see several other TSG stars entering the cage at Clements Hall on Saturday, March 31.
