For the first time since the King in the Ring 8 Man Series exploded onto the New Zealand fight scene, the welterweight division is set to strut their stuff on September 15th at the ASB Stadium.

With a 68kg weight limit, we will see fighters coming up from the lightweights, and coming down from middleweight to take a place in the 8 man line up for a shot at the welterweight title.

Eight contenders will go head to head in a survival series of three-round elimination bouts, battling it out for the coveted King in the Ring crown and the $10,000 grand prize.

Squaring off under international K-1 rules, these top eight fighters bring together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay thai, kyokushin karate, MMA and other martial arts.

Eight men. One will be King.
