The stakes are higher than ever in the rivalry between Shane “Swerve” Strickland and Jimmy Havoc as both men are now set to square off in the semi-finals of the World Heavyweight Championship tournament.

The semi-final match will take place at Gilt Nightclub in Orlando, FL on Thursday night March 8th at MLW: Spring Break ’18.  You can purchase tickets now at MLWTickets.com.

Jimmy Havoc and Shane Strickland have been at odds since an October attack on Strickland and Sami Callihan outside Gilt Nightclub, which left Strickland’s friend Callihan in the hospital.

Since then, Strickland has been tangled up in a feud with Havoc and Darby Allin, with Havoc seemingly always having Strickland’s number.  Will Havoc go 3-0 against “Swerve” or will Strickland get a win and advance to the finals of the tournament?  Find out on Thursday March 8th in Orlando!

World Heavyweight Championship Semi-Finals:
Matt Riddle vs. “Filthy” Tom Lawlor

World Heavyweight Championship Semi-Finals:

Also confirmed for MLW: Spring Break ’18 is the in-ring debut of “Bad Boy” Joey Janela. League officials expect to announce his opponent shortly.
