THE Brandon Hotel will host what promises to be a fantastic night of entertainment in an explosion of martial arts disciplines on June 22.

The Night of Champions is presented by Champion Thaiboxing Tralee with fighters travelling from all over the country to compete in a fight-off for national titles in a variety of martial arts disciplines.

"These fighters have never been in better shape," said multi-world champion David O'Sullivan who is organising the event.

"They have trained long and hard and are at their best levels of fitness ever. They are ready to put up the best fight of their lives and they have never been so motivated he said.

David O'Sullivan is determined that the Night of Champions will be even more successful than his two previous shows.

The events of the night will determine which of the various martial arts disciplines will triumph - Muay Thai, kickboxing, K-1 kickboxing, or Taekwondo - and who will leave as Champions.

More than 40 fighters will appear on the night and include a range of nationalities and genders. With more than 20 fights over the course of the night, the standard of fighting is set to be extremely high. Local fighters and fighters from around the country will compete against each other .

The night kicks off with a selection of first blood undercard fghts, and the main event begins at 7.30pm. It will be the first event in Kerry to showcase a K1 kickboxing and Muay Thai event on the same night.

This year Champion Thaiboxing is bringing even more professionalism to the event in the form of top FHM bikini model, Rebeccah O'Rourke who is making a special appearance as the ring girl.

"It's going to be a great night, the best yet. Don't miss it!" said David O'Sullivan.

Tickets are priced at €15 for adults, and €10 for children, and are available to buy on the door on the night, or at the Abbey Inn Bar & Restaurant and the Barbers at Manor West Retail Park and Ashe Street.
