Bigger’s Better Boxing schedules Girl Power III on Friday June 23 live on SFR Sport 5.
Girl Power is a female kickboxing contest. Eight international contenders battle out in the one-night eight-woman featherweight tournament. Prestigious WKN championship belt at stake. The show airs live in prime time on European television network SFR Sport 5.
Producer of the events is the famed “Bigger’s Better”. The organization is notable for three seasons of heavyweight boxing live on Eurosport. Last month the “BB” has presented the Girl Power on SFR Sport. In 2014 the pilot hit the stream live on Pay-Per-View. Furthermore, the Hall of Fame referee Steve Smoger of the US officiates kickboxing bouts.
The Girl Power series will continue to be broadcasted live on SFR through 2019. “The BBB-SFR partnership enables us to increase the opportunities for women in sports around the world,” said the Bigger’s Better Boxing President Jean-Christophe Courreges.
The concept of Girl Power on SFR Sport is a five-event schedule per year in the format of Grand Prix. Four qualification tournaments lead to the super finale.
The backbone is the World Kickboxing Network. On Monday, the global kickboxing federation has formally announced the date of the next show.
Girl Power III is held on Friday June 23. The country-host has not yet been revealed. The list of targeted participants includes Marina Spasic of Serbia, Laetitia Madjene of France, Ashley Gilson of Belgium.
