Danish city on the Jutland peninsula’s east coast is known for numerous world class promotions including boxing series Bigger’s Better 5 and Valhalla – Battle of Vikings (where former UFC Light Heavyweight title challenger Volkan Oezdemir earned his first trophy in MMA becoming the champion of WKN tournament), just to name a couple.

On June 23 international kickboxing returns to Belfast city center with the next edition of “made-in Prokick” event presented by Billy Murray. A Sunday afternoon Fight-Special takes place at the Clayton Hotel marking the second visit of World Kickboxing Network to Northern Ireland this year.
