King in the Ring 8 Man Series is kicking off 2016 with a new 75kg weight division.
Previous Kings of the 72kg middleweight division are Joey 'Soufpaw' Hopkins, Blood Diamond and Kiwi UFC fighter, Dan 'Hangman' Hooker. The 8 man line up for April 15th will see the first ever King crowned in the 75kg weight class.
Definitely one not to be missed for fans of the speed and skill of the lighter weight fighters, and the power of the heavies .
8 of New Zealand's top stand up fighters go head to head in a survival series of three-round elimination bouts, with one goal in sight – to be the last man standing and be crowned the first ever 75kg King in the Ring.
These fighters will square off under international K-1 rules, bringing together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, kung fu, kyokushin karate, and other martial arts.
As well as the main 8-man event, fight fans will see our top New Zealand fighters battle it out in super fight battles, guaranteed to have you jumping out of your seat.
