Eleven out of twelve bouts have been locked in for the upcoming night of international kickboxing “made in Prokick”. The event, billed as “Lord of the Ring”, takes place at Stormont Hotel in Belfast, Northern Ireland on October 26. The lineup features the A-list representatives of the country-host and international competitors in a series of kickboxing, Full Contact and oriental rules (K-1 style) bouts. The event is headlined by WKN Intercontinental championship Europe vs. Asia.
The main and co-main event bouts have been announced in August. Mid last month the promotion added several additional matchups to the lineup. A nearly completed fight card has now been revealed on Prokick.com.
