Kingin the Ring 68I
For the first time since the King in the Ring 8 Man Series exploded onto the New Zealand fight scene, the welterweight division is set to strut their stuff centre ring, on September 15th at the ASB Stadium.
With a 68kg weight limit, we will see fighters coming up from the lightweights, and coming down from middleweight, to take a place in the 8 man line up, for a shot at the welterweight title.
Eight contenders will go head to head in a survival series of three-round elimination bouts, battling it out for the coveted King in the Ring crown and the $10,000 grand prize.
Squaring off under international K-1 rules, these top eight fighters bring together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, kyokushin karate, MMA and other martial arts.
Keep it locked to the King in the Ring 8 Man Series facebook page, as the 8 man contenders are announced.
Eight men. One will be King.
