King in the Ring 68III: The Welterweights
The electric atmosphere of New Zealand’s biggest combat sport event, the King in the Ring 8 Man Series, takes over the Eventfinda Stadium on Auckland’s North Shore on Saturday 27th March. Eight of the country’s top welterweight fighters will go head to head in a survival series of three-round elimination bouts, battling it out for the coveted King in the Ring title and the $10,000 grand prize.
The top eight fighters in this explosive weight division will be squaring off under international K-1 kickboxing rules, bringing together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, kyokushin karate, MMA and other martial arts.
The 2019 King, Arshia Ebadi, has chosen not to defend his title, leaving it vacant for the eight hungry contenders. Eight fighters. Only ONE will be King.
