FIGHT fans are in for a treat with a major Thai Boxing tournament, involving some of Ireland and Europe's top fighters, taking place at The Brandon.
On Saturday, November 23, The Brandon Conference Centre will host the "ultimate fight night" which will see some of Ireland and Europe's most talented fighters meet in the ring and compete for the title of Ultimate Warrior.
The event, which will raise funds for The Kerry Cancer Support Group, has been organised by David O'Sullivan, owner of Champion Thai Boxing Tralee, who ran the successful Night Of Champions kick-boxing tournament at the Brandon in June.
"We're bringing the best professional world-class fighters to Tralee. We want to show Kerry what professional fighting is all about. We'll have fighters from all over the country as well as from Poland, Lithuania, Russia, UK, and they will all be flying their flags for their country. We're upping the ante and it's going to be a fantastic show," said David.
Tralee's own Mark Leen will be the MC for the night. There will be 25 bouts, including amateur and professional fights and the highlight will be a battle for the Ultimate Warrior Belt in a 4-man knockout bout.
