Meese has been impressive in his first four bouts, winning each via submission in the first round. Most recently, the 18-year-old tapped Tony Kirksey via arm bar at RFO: Big Guns 25 in September. Meese will be coming up in weight for this bout, as he is ranked as the No. 6 amateur bantamweight in Ohio by Tapology.
Walters already has 16 bouts on his resume in less than two years, as the 19-year-old has remained busy early in his career. His last two wins have come via first round stoppage, including a knockout victory over Juwan Minniefield in his last outing at Warrior Nation Fight Series 47 in August. Walters is ranked as the No. 8 amateur lightweight in Pennsylvania by Tapology.
Super heavyweights will also throw down at Caged Thunder 1, as Casey Ogan (2-1) takes on Jesse Villers (1-0). Ogan looks to rebound from his first loss as he competes for the first time since last October. Villers picked up a decision win in his debut earlier this year.
Caged Thunder 1 takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 22 at the Tadmor Shrine in Akron, Ohio. Check out the current card below.
