Thank you for your understanding and support of our event, the fighters and the New Zealand combat sport community.
Who will follow in the footsteps of former King in the Ring cruiserweight Kings; TY Williams, Israel 'The Last Style Bender' Adesanya and Slava 'Scarface' Alexeichik?
Be ringside to witness 8 of New Zealand’s top fighters as they square off under international K-1 rules, bringing together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, MMA, kung fu and kyokushin karate.
With an exciting mix of established fighters and rising stars of the future in the electric atmosphere of a K-1 style 8 man tournament, the format requires the winner to defeat 3 opponents in a single night and provides the ultimate test of both skill and endurance.
Eight Fighters in seven fights. Only ONE will be King!
