Bellator MMA fighter Michael “Venom” Page finally competed for the first time in 2017, but it didn’t take place inside an MMA cage.
Rather, Page made his professional boxing debut on Oct. 20, competing against Jonathan Castano at the Indigo at the O2 club in Greenwhich, England.
The fight was scheduled for four rounds, but it did not go the distance. The Bellator welterweight, who seemed comfortable around the ring, managed to knock Castano down in the third. While Castano beat the count, he was still deemed unable to continue, giving Page a TKO win.

Page was originally booked to compete in Bellator at Bellator 179 back in May, but a knee injury forced him off the card. He is currently signed to the Hayemaker Ringstar promotion, run by heavyweight David Haye.
There is anticipation for a potential bout in MMA between Page and bitter rival Paul Daley. Page has two fights remaining on his current Bellator MMA contract.
