Former world champion and head coach Wes Fagan said: “It will be a massive promotion in terms of kickboxing as there has not been an event of this kind of its size in the area ever before.”

The star of the event will be 15-year-old Zach Glendinning, from Lanchester, who recently lifted the IKF British Junior Title. He is fighting Albanian fighter, Valentin Kapaj, for the IKF European Junior Title.
