SBG Make The News Again!
SBG Mainline’s Paul Douglas, pictured, made the news in claiming the British Amateur Lock-In title in the lightweight division. While appearing in the newspaper for his most recent accomplishment in Guernsey might be the icing on the cake, the habit of winning fights it far from big news for those familiar with Paul Douglas. He is unbeaten in all his amateur fights thus far, achieving wins via both submission and TKO, while only going to decision once.
Paul’s achievement is all the more impressive given that his fight nearly didn’t even happen. His original opponent had to pull out of the fight with just a few days to go before the event. When a replacement was found, the fight Paul had been preparing for was turned on its head. The anticipation of fighting an opponent who favors stand-up was suddenly changed to the likelihood that his opponent would prefer to grapple. Paul was able to adjust and secure a win, and the Lock-In title, regardless. Paul Douglas’ new role as MMA champion must fit in around both family and work. In between winning fights and now belts, Paul is the father of four children, and runs a roofing business. Check out the link below, with a video where Paul talks about the fight, the future, and thanks his family, friends and SBG team members.
