Up and coming youngsters and seasoned fighters alike are counting down to Saturday 3 October, when Superstar Fight League 3: The Road to Glory comes to The Magnus Sports Centre in Newark.
In an action-packed evening including amateur and professional K-1, kickboxing and boxing, they will be looking to follow in the footsteps of top Suggy’s Gym professionals Chad ‘2 Slick’ Sugden and Regis ‘The First’ Sugden when they take on opponents from some of the leading clubs across the country.
Fighters from 4th Dimension, Red Dragonz, Team Mafia, Burton Kickboxing Academy, UTC, Platinum Kickboxing and Trojan Martial Arts Academy will all feature on the card against local favourites from Newark Martial Arts and Suggy’s Gym.
Representing the Newark camp on the night will be Sam Hardy, Jordan Haywood, Megan Williams, Carl Thorpe, Thomas Rawlinson, Kieran Duffy, Connor Meanwell, Kristian Kraatz and Bailey Sugden.
Headline billing on the night goes jointly to two fights, the first seeing 4th Dimension’s Ammari Diedrick taking on Ed Kelly from Red Dragonz under K-1 pro rules.
“Modestas has been chasing a rematch since Bailey defeated him in a very close K-1 contest under amateur rules 18 months ago,” said Suggy’s Gym head coach Dean Sugden. “They’ll be fighting under K-1 pro rules this time, with Bailey out to retain his unbeaten record since turning professional back in March. And after his explosive performance in Newark in April, this one has all the makings of the fight of the night.”
Tickets for The Road To Glory are on sale from Suggy’s Gym on Castlegate or via the ticket hotline 07816 840920, priced £15 for under 16s, £25 for adults and £40 for ringside reserved.
Doors at the Magnus Sports Centre open at 7pm, first bell is at 7.45pm and a licensed bar and hot food will be available throughout the evening.
