Cartwright joined Cage Warriors last year as a 5-0 prospect and competed on the Cage Warriors Unplugged 2 show. Cartwright scored two knockouts in the same night over Scott Malone and Marko Kovacevic to win the four-man bantamweight tournament and claim the Cage Warriors bantamweight title.
Hailing from Manchester, the undefeated Cartwright will now get the opportunity to defend his title for the first time in front of his home city to kick off his 2020 campaign. Cartwright has proven himself to be a finisher with all of his professional bouts ending with a stoppage.
Standing across the cage from the Mancunian will be Croatian Manuel Bilić. Like Cartwright, Bilić also made his debut for the Cage Warriors promotion last year and picked up a submission win over Bryan Creighton.
