Carlos “The Flying Fijian” Hicks made history in 2018 when he became Fiji’s first-ever kickboxing world champion after knocking out England’s Sam Gough in the fourth-round of their International Kickboxing Federation middleweight title bout.
Hicks, a well-known fighter on New Zealand’s kickboxing circuit, is the reigning King in the Ring middleweight champion and has recently set his sights on conquering the MMA world. He was set to fight Australia’s Dimps Gillies at Eternal 50 until an injury incurred during his fight camp forced his withdrawal.
Training out of House of Pain in Hamilton under coach Ethan Shepp, Hicks has been competing as a martial artist for almost a decade. “The Flying Fijian” took time out of his schedule to talk to NZ Fighter about his career, his thoughts on combat sport, and his plans for the future.
Hicks has an exciting style of fighting and delivers action-packed performances every time he competes. To keep up with his career you can follow him on Facebook.
