PHILADELPHIA — MLW today announced a World Middleweight Title Match: Myron Reed (champion) vs. Arez (representing AAA Lucha Libre) for MLW: FIGHTLAND at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday February 1. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $15 at: www.MLW2300.com

The AAA x MLW collaboration continues as Mexico's premier organization sends the cutting edge luchador Arez to challenge for Myron Reed's World Middleweight Championship.

Thrilling crowds with his innovative arsenal, Arez is one of the hottest luchadores to cross the border in years.

Overwhelming adversaries with cutting edge combinations, Arez is one of AAA's brightest stars of the new decade.

Mentored by the legendary Blue Demon Jr., Arez's speed and technique are a challenge for opponents to keep pace with.  Will that be the case for the defending World Middleweight Champion Myron Reed?

Entering the historic 2300 Arena for his 3rd world championship defense, the outspoken Myron Reed along with his cohorts in Injustice have recently turned MLW upside down.  

Disrupting MLW events with impromptu protests, assaulting Brian Pillman in a scheme to enter the Opera Cup and knocking out Gringo Loco with brass knuckles, the trio have become a force to reckon with in MLW.

Now Reed faces his greatest challenge to date in Arez. Will Reed clinch his third successful defense or will Arez make history and bring the gold back home to AAA?
