"Everyone who is a combat sport fan in New Zealand is watching.
King in the Ring is the peak of kickboxing success. It's the first step - and certainly the pinnacle of getting nationally recognised. You solidify yourself as one of the guys in New Zealand to be pushed on the international stage."
- by DAN 'HANGMAN' HOOKER
"King in the Ring is definitely a good night out. It is well organised and always has a great lineup of top level fighters. I've attended in person and watched it live on Sky, and am always impressed by the calibre of fighters and the way the night flows.
It's good to see someone giving back to the sport and looking after future generations."
- by SHANE 'MOUNTAIN WARRIOR' CAMERON
"King in the Ring is the best Martial Arts sporting event that I have experienced in New Zealand to date.
Its production, fighters, crowd and atmosphere far exceed anything else I have been to after personally attending many similar events of this nature that have taken place over the past 15 years."
