The first King in the Ring 8 man elimination event for 2018 is brought to you by Flame.

The big boys are back, set to showcase their knockout power in a series of 3 round elimination bouts, to decide who is the New Zealand super heavyweight King in the Ring champion.

Paulo 'The Barbarian' Lakai will not be returning to defend his crown, leaving the 8 contenders to battle it out for the title.

King in the Ring heads to central Auckland City, following the multi million dollar renovations of the YMCA stadium on Pitt Street, promising a more intimate and high quality fight sport experience.

Tickets will be limited as the new inner city venue is smaller, so secure your seats before it sells out.
