Peace and Respect
International kickboxing returns to Malta this coming Saturday October 28 with Gladiators Fight Night 18. The event takes place at The Pavilion Gastro Pub in Paolo, featuring the five-fight main card, which follows the preliminary card comprising 12 bouts. The roster includes local and international fighters, representing Italy, Switzerland and Northern Ireland.
Gladiators FN18 is held under the banner of The Peace Fighters launched by Northern Ireland’s Billy Muray and Swiss Carl Emery in 2008. In March 2014 former Kickboxing World Champions presented the initiative at the 25th UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva. The aim is “to promote peace and respect through sport by bringing together leading martial arts groups from here at home, across Europe and beyond”.
