El Ligero, a 76kg professional from Leeds, has wrestled in the United States, Italy, Switzerland, France, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and many times in the UK for more than 100 different wrestling companies.
He has also worked as a referee for Revolution British Wrestling and was a ring announcer for Real Deal Wrestling.
There will be seven matches at the exciting event, and another will include Grimsby Wrestling Academy coach Spyda, who has more than 25 years of experience.
He will be in the ring with King Kendo, who has been a professional wrestler for 20 years and is currently signed to Waw Wrestling and also Hew Wrestling promotions. His no-nonsense approach brings him few friends.
Steve Cartwright, 32, is promoter and coach of Grimsby Wrestling Academy, which is based at the Enterprise Village, in King Edward Street, Grimsby.
"Wrestling is sport entertainment," said Steve, who was a full-time professional wrestler for many years.
"People who compete are athletes and work together to put on a performance. It is a unique and diverse sport."
The academy has weekly wrestling groups for men, women-only sessions and youngsters aged seven to 13.
It started life five years ago in Kent Street Resource Centre, and it has only recently moved to the centre in King Edward Street.
Every month they have a show at the Grimsby Central Hall – but this one will be there best yet, with plenty of real action which is bound to hurt!
Steve added: "People presume the ring has a soft landing, but it certainly isn't.
"While I was wrestling I got a dislocated shoulder and many broken fingers and toes. I know one coach who broke his neck. If it wasn't for his training to land properly it could have been worse."
Tonight's action starts at 7pm and tickets cost £8 and £5 for under-14s. They are available from the Central Hall box office on 01472 349300.
