SBG Ireland fighter Stephen Costello (0-1) has been booked to fight against Macedonian Martin Antevski at Centurion FC on Saturday 2nd July in Malta.

Costello made his professional debut at Bellator 270 last November. Despite some early success in the fight, the welterweight ultimately suffered a 2nd-round submission loss at the hands of Yusuf Nazokatov.

The Dubliner will look to notch his first win as a pro against Antevski. The Macedonian trains out of Malta, though there is little information available regarding his record/experience.

Centurion FC have yet to announce the event, but it is expected to feature a string of SBG Ireland talent, with more matchups to follow.
