KING IN THE RING 68I

Friday 15th September | Doors Open 6.30pm | ASB Stadium, Kohimarama, Auckland


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 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.

As well as the main 8-man tournament, there’s a stacked undercard of well matched, action packed superfights. Keep it locked to the King in the Ring facebook page to see the fighters as they are announced.

Eight men. Only One will be King.
