North East a Great Place to be for Fight Fans

With promoters all over the region putting on bigger and better shows each year, the North East is really solidifying itself as a place that is not only producing talented competitors, but is a great place to be for fight fans too. Over the next few months alone, we can look forward to seeing a number of top domestic and international bouts right here in the North East.

If you’re a kickboxing fan, you’ll know that Duel is an event not to be missed. Previous shows have not disappointed, bringing highlight reel knockouts and some incredible domestic and international battles. On February 4th, Duel brings you the Duel Grand Prix, featuring a super-heavyweight four-man tournament, a 61kg Muay Thai tournament and top international bouts; this time moving from the NE6 Suite to a 1000-seater venue at the Walker Activity Dome.

The K1 and Muay Thai action does not stop there, though. The Home Show, brought to you by Millennium Martial Arts, is back on the 25th February and also features two four-man tournaments, five huge title fights and a chance to fight on one of the biggest kickboxing shows in the world, Enfusion Live.

As we head closer to the Spring, we have another huge night of K1 and Muay Thai action to look forward to as Victory Promotions brings Battle of the North 2 on April 8th. Another four-man 61kg Muay Thai tournament featuring four of the regions top fighters, as well as a huge international main event between three-time WBC Champion Keith McLachlan and Spanish WMC Champion Isaac Araya.

If you prefer MMA however, there’s also plenty to look forward to, beginning with a huge European Welterweight title fight at Made4TheCage 23 between undefeated, local superstar Ryan Scope and Lew Long at Rainton Meadows Arena on the 25th February.

Combat Challenge North East host their next show in Middlesbrough on the 11th March, featuring many more top bouts which are sure to excite local fight fans.
