The King in the Ring 8 Man Series is headed South to the nation’s capital, for the second instalment of the super middleweight division.

On June 8th at the Te Rauparaha Arena, King ‘Slick’ Vic Mechkov will be defending his title from seven hungry contenders. After his 2016 victory over opponents, Mikaera Povey, Blood Diamond, and that unforgettable final with Hayden Todd, Vic has another hard road ahead to secure his belt for a second time.

Don't miss the action LIVE as these top eight super middleweight strikers, 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, they bring together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, kyokushin karate, MMA and other martial arts.

Eight fighters. Only ONE will be King.

Keep it locked as we announce the 8 man line up.
