A source close to Davey Boy’s camp confirms the 6’6″ athlete has been preparing for the “Grapple in the Big Apple” by training at the new Dungeon, owned by Teddy Hart.

Rumor has it former UFC World Champion Josh Barnett has been sighted training with Davey Boy. Both are proponents of Catch Wrestling; a fiercely respected scientific wrestling style.

Will we see a new dimension to Smith’s grappling game on July 25 at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City?

Meanwhile, Timothy Thatcher is staying sharp; slicing through the European competition en route to next Thursday’s collision course in Queens.
